Normally the Scottish media can be counted on to provide extensive coverage of the Colombian national side.

Squad announcements are previewed and speculated over, new strip launches are covered and on occasion you can read about step-overs, defence splitting passes and incredible comparisons for Glasgow based players.

Except when they get gubbed.

Last night with El Buffalo parked on the bench Colombia were hammered 6-1 away to Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier.

With Ecuador leading 4-0 James Rodriguez of Everton pulled a goal back but coach Carlos Quiroz opted to leave El Buffalo on the bench with his bottom lip getting bigger and bigger.

Colombia kept it down to 6-1, after four matches they have four points in the marathon 22 match qualifying campaign which gives Morelos plenty of matches to restore his Qatar World Cup dream.
