Inter Milan forward Alexis Sanchez had Chile in mind in Santiago before Galatasaray forward Falcao struck to win Colombia a share of the booty

The game was Morelos’ eighth selection for his country and comes after the player made a cameo appearance in Colombia’s 3-0 win over Venezuela last week

Morelos has a goal for his country, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over South American rival Peru last year

The former HJK Helsinki striker’s latest caps also come after the player’s inclusion in the Colombian squad was criticized because Morelos plays in Scotland

The forward quelled sentiment by suggesting that the Scottish Premiership is a considerably higher standard than it is attributed to

« I’m happy to be called up for the national team again, » said Morelos [Scottish Sun]

« Regarding my future at Rangers, I will decide that in the next few days, but for now, I only think of Colombia
