There is a country that will never reach the World Cup.
It is located north of South America and is called Venezuela.
Yes, the ‘Vinotinto’ will never make it to the World Cup … As long as Nicolás Maduro remains in the country’s presidency and mediocrity surrounds the decisions of Rafael Dudamel, coach of the national team.
They are harsh words, but someone has said to them.
And that someone is me.
There are a lot of aspects that influence in which a selection of soccer can reach the World Cup. Social welfare is one of them; an aspect that Venezuela lacks.
It is ironic that most soccer players in South American teams suffer it when almost all of them live outside their native country. But that’s how it is. It is an almost prophetic rule.
However, in the country of the eight stars, it has more room.
Part of the Venezuelan team plays in the league of his country and suffers, like all Venezuelans, the crisis that is going on there.
Malnutrition, insecurity, economic crisis. Everything influences.
Once the difficult context is known, it is added that the brands that sponsor the selection will not renew for next year and the economic problem will obviously increase.
In this way, the best generation of soccer players is directly affected by the situation … and by the bad decisions of their coach.
Rafael Dudamel has made history with the minor categories, but his management in the major has been quite questionable.
First decision: Roberto Rosales out of the national team. One of the best players in the country, captain and with 12 years of experience in Europe.
And who replaces it ?!
We are already understanding.
Lousy readings, elusive statements to the questions and much mystery are in charge of the team.
Is it possible that Vinotinto attends a World Cup? Yes.
Could it be now? Not close.
And, the most important question: Is an early change being visualized?
Here in Venezuela, the country – which, if managed and polluted like that – will never reach a World Cup.
