Arango returns to the National Soccer team of Venezuela

Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on October 30, 2014

The coaching staff of the national team announced the list of players that will count for friendlies on November 14th against Chile in Talcahuano and November 18th against Bolivia in La Paz, which featured the return of the Vibnotinto´s  captain, Juan Arango, who returns to a call from the end of the South American qualifiers for Brazil 2014.

Noel 'Chita' Sanvicente also included in his call Yohandry Orozco, who had been excluded from the tour of Asia, where he debuted for the national team in two friendly matches (against South Korea and Japan), due the refusal of Deportivo Táchira to deliver the player at the set time.

"There was a desire to call other players who participated in the first calls that were made in Venezuela and on tours abroad, but injuries and other problems forced us to change the list," said Sanvicente regarding injuries to players like Juan Falcon, Tomas Rincon, among others.

The call put together by the Venezuelan strategist also noted around the selection of Emilio Renteria, who plays for Chilean football with the San Marcos de Arica, and the absence of suspended striker Zenit St Petersburg Russian, Salomon Rondon, who was sent off in the friendly against South Korea in September.

 "We have players who might be, but missing paperwork for full membership, as in the case of Christian Santos (NEC Netherlands) and Jeffren Suarez (Valladolid of Spain)" Sanvicente continued, referring to the identity in the case of Santos Suarez as the complete change of nationality to FIFA.

The Journey of the Vinotinto begins on Sunday November 9th with a part of the coaching staff that will travel to Santiago, Chile, while the next day the rest of the players will travel. The Legionnaires will join their teammates in Southern soil.
