Milan defender Cristian Zapata and Juventus’ Juan Cuadrado are in Colombia’s World Cup squad, but Sampdoria namesake Duvan misses out.
Cristian played just 12 times for Milan in Serie A last season, while Duvan scored 11 goals for Samp, yet it is the former who makes the cut.
Cuadrado is also called up, as expected, after helping Juventus to another domestic double, as are Fiorentina’s Carlos Sanchez and Milan’s Carlos Bacca, who enjoyed productive loan spells with Espanyol and Villarreal.
The Tricolor have been drawn in Group H for the Russian showpiece alongside Poland, Senegal and Japan.
Colombia squad for World Cup: Jose Cuadrado, Ospina, Camilo Vargas; Arias, Fabra, Yerry Mina, Mojica, Oscar Murillo, Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Zapata; Aguilar, Barrios, Juan Cuadrado, Lerma, Quintero, James, Carlos Sanchez, Uribe; Bacca, Borja, Izquierdo, Muriel, Falcao
