Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been called up to the Colombia squad as he looks to add to his three caps for the South American nation.
The fiery striker has been on scintillating form ever since the club returned from pre-season and this call up is a just reward for his 13 goals so far this campaign.
There’s been a noticeable evolution of Morelos as both a goal scorer and as a forward player, and there’s real hope from the Ibrox support than this is the time he catches the eye internationally.
The rampant striker has been in superb form for Rangers this season and this call-up to his national side is no less than Morelos deserves.
The striker is yet to score for Colombia but with Alfie being on such strong form for the Ibrox club he’ll fancy his chances of finding the net against Chile or Algeria.
Both games are also set to take place on European soil too, which means there won’t be any long-winded travelling to do for Morelos to the other side of the globe.
Don’t underestimate the benefit of that considering the former HJK Helsinki striker has already played 17 games this season.
Colombia will play Chile on the 10th of October in Alicante whilst they will play Algeria in Lille on the 15th.
The international call-up comes after Morelos was named in Colombia’s preliminary squad earlier in the month [Colombian Football].
