Asprilla hails Cuadrado

Faustino Asprilla praised Fiorentina talent Juan Cuadrado as Colombia prepare to face Uruguay.

The Round of 16 tie kicks off in Rio de Janeiro tonight at 21.00 UK time (20.00 GMT).

“In the World Cup I played in, Colombia always ended up against very difficult opponents,” ex-Parma star Asprilla told Sky Sport Italia.

“The same is true this year, but it will be truly pleasing to have so many Colombians in the stands against Uruguay.

“Which of the current crop is similar to me? No, that’s impossible – there’s nobody like me!

“I am very impressed with Cuadrado, as he’s doing very well and we are very satisfied with his performances.”
