      Several Bianconeri involved as Juan Cuadrado’s Colombia see off Ecuador, Germany defeat Italy and France seal victory over Russia

      Juan Cuadrado’s Colombia boosted their aspirations of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup with a 3-1 victory against Ecuador in Barranquilla on Tuesday night.

      Juve’s wing wizard set up Carlos Bacca for the hosts’ final goal in a match they never looked in doubt of winning after the Milan striker netted a brace either side of Sebastian Perez’s strike just after half-time. Michael Arroyo’s 90th minute goal proved to be a mere consolation for the visitors.

      Shifting attentions to the several European friendly matches involving members of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad, there was further joy for France, who followed up Friday’s 3-2 triumph over the Netherlands with another high-scoring win, this time on the right side of a 4-2 scoreline against Russia in Paris. Paul Pogba and Patrice Evra played 69 minutes and 45 minutes respectively of this latest victory, as N’Golo Kante, Andre-Pierre Gignac, Dimitri Payet and Kingsley Coman all scored for Les Bleus.

      Meanwhile in Munich, Sami Khedira’s Germany defeated Italy 4-1, Toni Kroos, Mario Goetze, Jonas Hector and Mesut Oezil all scoring for the hosts, with Stephan El Shaarawy netting a late consolation goal for the Azzurri.

      Tuesday proved less profitable for Stephan Lichtsteiner and Switzerland, who lost 2-0 in Zurich to Bosnia and Herzegovina, for whom Roma duo Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic both got their names on the scoresheet.
