Cristian Martínez Borja, a Chocoano striker, left wonderful memories in America. Until July 2018, he was in the Valle del Cauca squad, standing out for his efficacy in the opposing objectives.

With the scarlets in 83 games, he scored 37 targets from the second half of 2016, one of the most notable was that he scored 2-1 against Quindío in Pascual Guerrero.

Nowadays, he is a leader in the Quito University League, as a local tournament and in the Copa Libertadores, with three goals, 3 in Gabriel Barbosa (Flamengo) and 2 in his countryman Miguel Ángel Borja at the age of 33. (Junior).

Martínez Borja spoke with Supertrending and Deportes RCN about his moment, admitting he would come back to America de Cali without dreaming about him being the scarlet box as a good fan: "It was the maximum for me from the first day I wore the América jersey. As I always said, I'm an American fan and your dream is to always play with your squad and thank God I've been able to make this dream come true. This campaign was remarkable because of all the fans lived, because the club passed through in those five years and now America is where it wants to be." "

Regarding the prospect of indicating a possible signature if Juan Carlos Osorio arrives, he added "You cannot even ask it, of course. Now that you're looking at new ventures with Osorio, one still keeps America solid, the good players there are excellent, but now I'm with the League and enjoy it completely. I didn't speak to Tulio. Illusions still exist, the truth is different, but as I always tell you, I always drive the team from outside."

He also referred to what he experiences in Quito's Liga Deportiva, and pointed out, "Thank God, things are going well, and that's what is vital to you as a player. Thank you for the way you handled me here because it is really important for you. Each football is different, Ecuadorian football is well known, the football of Colombia is different and the league of Colombia is very competitive, but adaptation is very strong, which is why things work in the best way. Football in Ecuador grew a lot, the National Team did stuff well, apart from that I am in Quito League, one of the largest in the world and that really helps."

Regarding the strategy of both the team and the Libertadores party, which they are sharing with Flamengo Vélez Sarsfield and Unión La Calera, he said, "I am very thankful to the board of directors and my colleagues who helped things to work well to this day. There is a lot of solidarity in this team and we all play for the same goal, from where it goes to the individual, both in person and in a group it was really nice for me."

He likewise expressed his view on Colombian club participation in Copa Libertadores: "Because I haven't been there a long time, I don't know how to say that the teams of Colombia have always participated well, all four of them are strong teams. They're good teams. For one thing, it is important that Colombian soccer is at the top, it's complicated, but all that I can say is that Libertadores is a totally distinct tournament, where teams know that inside the house they always have the points, I think they were not at home, but we are all aware that Colombian football is pretty competitive."

Regarding the possibility of being in the Colombia National Team, he stated that “one is realistic, the dream of every player is to play for the National Team, one only does his job and if it happens, for one it is a lot of joy, but we all know the level that they have all the national team players in Europe; but you work and you always have the illusion that one day it will touch you, or else, force you as always"

At the same time, he recalled how they experienced the defeat of Colombia in the Qatar Qualifiers in their country of residence: “They lived it with great joy, they did not expect that result, they knew about the level of the Colombian National Team, nobody expected them to miss out on that form, but I think the Ecuadorian National Team was animated, they have a new coach who has them motivated, there were several teammates who already knew the field, but the height factor helped Ecuador a lot and they enjoyed it to the fullest, one as a player and Colombian is more neutral ”.

He could not miss his concept of the need for the VAR to be in each stadium where the Copa Libertadores is played: “The VAR helps a lot, there are specific errors that can leave you out, but the VAR is there to improve football if it were P\possible to have the VAR in all Libertadores matches would be better. In these basic games, you are left out in any match."

To conclude, he left a message for the country in this complicated moment of public order: “We are all living it, from a distance one follows the difficult moment that we are living, let's hope that, with God's help, Colombia will return to being that country calm and harmonious where everyone welcomes and lives quietly. This is more important for the government to give the Colombian people peace of mind."
