The Historical Tribute: the retired FPC numbers
In European football, stars making history in a team always get some sort of homage. A special shirt and the removal of the numbers from a sweetheart game, a practice that has developed through the years, and in Colombia the institutional component is hardly seen.
But only two players in the history of Colombian football can boast that their numbers have been withdrawn through their respective clubs. Two specialists made history, titles and great deeds each in his place.
In Colombia the first precedent is that of André Escobar, who retired after his death the second but years later and awarded another historical defender, Iván Ramiro Córdoba.
A wall was consolidated as the liberating captain in the green marbles. Alexis Henríquez had glasses filled and Nacional champion screamed 13 times. The defender was left in the purslane squad for history. As they left the box, along with Franco Armani, they wanted to withhold the legendary 12 as one of the most successful winners in the history of the Nacional. There are 5 Leagues, 4 Cups, 2 Superleagues and one Libertadores and Recopa Sudamericana.
A Rock Star with the best of the 80s and 90s bands. During 318 beautiful afternoons, David González guarded the Medellin goal. The 22nd came down to the Powerful's past as he left the club and won the most championships with the DIM. There were three Leagues and a Cup in his racking with the Paisa box.
