Cuadrado shoulders Colombia hope

Without Radamel Falcao to lead their attack, Colombia are looking to Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado at the World Cup, explains Alasdair Mackenzie.

It has been a stellar year for Juan Cuadrado. The winger has built on an impressive first season with Fiorentina by producing such ruthlessly efficient performances throughout the 2013-14 Serie A campaign that he is many pundits’ choice as Player of the Season. He has excelled under the tutelage of Vincenzo Montella, who has deployed the Colombian higher up the pitch to devastating effect - 15 goals and 11 assists across all competitions is not too shabby for a player who was until very recently considered a right-back.
