Colombia World Cup squad

Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado, Inter midfielder Fredy Guarin and Udinese Luis Muriel are in Colombia’s World Cup squad.

The 30-man provisional side was named by Coach Jose Pekerman and will be cut down to 23 for the tournament in Brazil.

Monaco striker Radamel Falcao was included despite undergoing surgery for a damaged anterior cruciate ligament in January.

There are several Serie A figures in the list, including Atalanta defender Mario Yepes, Milan’s Cristian Zapata, Napoli-owned Juan Camilo Zuniga and Pablo Armero, Cagliari forward Victor Ibarbo and Inter midfielder Guarin.

Fiorentina winger Cuadrado and Udinese centre-forward Luis Muriel complete the Italy-based round-up.
