On the 14th (Korean time), the Colombia Football Association announced a list of 25 players who will go on an expedition to Korea and Japan through its official social network service (SNS).

Afterwards, he moved to Olympiacos this season after going through Everton and Allian, and is working with Hwang In-beom. He is visiting Korea for the third time after 2017 and 2019.
