Greatest Games: Argentina 0 Colombia 5, 1993 – Carl Worswick
This week, Jonathan Wilson and Marcus Speller are joined by Carl Worswick to discuss the 1994 World Cup qualifier which saw Argentina host Colombia in Buenos Aires.
Heading into the match, qualification for the 94 World Cup was not yet confirmed for either side, however Colombia’s successful campaign so far meant they were only required to avoid defeat. But they were facing an Argentina side which had recently won a second of consecutive Copa América titles and hadn’t recorded a loss on home soil in six years.
