The Colombian footballer Luis Fernando Dáz Marulanda (born January 13, 1997) plays on the wing for Liverpool of the Premier League and the Colombia national team.
Dáz began his professional career in Colombia’s Second Division with Barranquilla before moving to Atlético Junior, where he won Category Primera A, one Copa Colombia, and one Superliga Colombiana. In his first year of 2019, he won the Cup and the FA Cup.
Despite scoring a goal in Liverpool’s 3-2 loss to Arsenal on Sunday, forward Luis Diaz will be sidelined until December with a knee injury.
Despite the fact that scans showed the Colombian player didn’t need surgery, he still won’t be able to play again until after the World Cup. The 25-year-old limped out of the Emirates Stadium with a brace on his knee, indicating that he will be out for at least 10 games for Jürgen Klopp’s struggling side.
Jürgen Klopp and Jordan Henderson had words after their team loses to Arsenal on Sunday. The once-balanced and assured Liverpool is now wobbling. It is not simple to regain either.
Important games that Daz will miss include the ones this Sunday (when Manchester City comes to town) and the next month (when they travel to Tottenham), as well as the Champions League games against Rangers, Ajax, and Napoli.
The fact that Colombia did not make it to the World Cup in Qatar means that Dáz will not be missing out on the action. Liverpool is still waiting to hear the extent of Trent Alexander-ankle Arnold’s injury from the match against Arsenal, which forced the defender to be replaced by Joe Gomez at halftime.
Dáz was promoted to the senior team on August 27, 2018, for friendlies against Venezuela and Argentina, after having previously represented Colombia at the under-20 level at the 2017 South American U-20 Championship.
On September 11th, he made his first appearance for his country after coming on as a substitute for Juan Cuadrado in a 0-0 tie against Colombia at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Dáz scored his first goal for his country on March 26, 2019, in a 2-2 draw against South Korea in a friendly. The 2019 Copa América was held in Brazil, and he was one of the 23 players selected by Carlos Queiroz.
The 2021 Copa América will be Daz’s first major international tournament. He opened the scoring with a bicycle kick in a 2-1 first-round loss to hosts Brazil on June 23, and he scored again in a 1-1 draw with Argentina on July 6, only for Argentina to triumph on penalties in the championship game.
In the third-place game against Peru three days later, he scored twice, including the game-winner. Like Lionel Messi, he finished the competition with the most goals.
