Copa America 2011, Colombia Vs. Costa Rica: Hugo Rodallega Subbed On

It didn't take long for Colombia manager Hernan Gomez to react to going up a man. Randall Brenes was sent off in the 28th minute, leaving Costa Rica with just 10 men and just five minutes later Gomez has brought on Hugo Rodallega to give the Colombia attack some reinforcements. The Wigan striker is coming off of another solid season in England and will try to give Colombia what they need to break the 0-0 deadlock.

Rodallega has come on for Abel Aguilar, leaving Colombia a little thin in the midfield, but that shouldn't matter much. With the way that the Colombia backline pushes forward and initiates the attack they won't look empty in the center as they go forward.. Colombia entered as the favorites and now that they are up a man they can take chances with more attacking players without having to worry about being exploited on the counter-attack by Costa Rica.
