BOGOTA, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Everton midfielder James Rodriguez and Galatasaray striker Radamel Falcao are poised to return to Colombia's national team for FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Chile next month, head coach Carlos Queiroz said on Friday.
The UEFA Super Cup is an annual match between the reigning champions of the two European major football competitions, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.
It may seem harsh to say that the reigning Champions have problems scoring goals, but that was one of Real Madrid's main issues last season, with much of the responsibility falling on Karim Benzema.
The striker said that joining Atletico Madrid was an "attractive challenge" and that he had spoken to Antoine Griezmann and Uruguay international Diego Godin about the club.
He clocked an impressive 3:28.45 to win the 1,500m in Monaco, just four one-hundredths of a second outside his lifetime best.
For over an hour, Sevilla managed to close the gaps in midfield and slow down Bayern's two-man driving force of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka.
Kevin de Bruyne was the Man of the Match for Guaridola's side, winning a penalty in the 19th minute and then sending Wolves keeper Rui Patricio the wrong way from the penalty spot.
Tokyo 2020 President Mori Yoshiro added: "We will continue to work hard on simplifications towards next year and ask for the continued cooperation of all those involved in the Games." Enditem
