Colombia fires coach after failing to reach world cup in qatar

Head coach of the Colombian National Team, Reinaldo Rueda was let go earlier today after failing to qualify the team for the World Cup in Qatar.

The Colombian Football Federation in a statement said Rueda’s assistants were also told not to return to their positions.

The federation said it will begin searching for a successor to Rueda. Colombia finished sixth in South American World Cup qualifying, one point behind Peru.

Rueda’s first stint with his country’s national team was from 2004-06. He also coached Honduras at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and took Ecuador to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He resigned as Chile coach to replace Carlos Queiroz in the Colombia job.
