Jamington Campas continued to attract the attention of Nestor Lorenzo and was called up to the Colombian national team. This time, the attacker was the protagonist of a wonderful goal that helped Rosario Central draw 1-1 with Independiente at the Aloyto Giants Stadium.
As soon as the game started, the counterattack ended at the feet of the Colombian players. As he moves down the left wing, he looks for opportunities to end the game with a goal. However, with no clear-cut chances found, Campas opted to pass the ball and promote his team’s play. However, in a completely unexpected moment, Jamington once again took possession of the ball and advanced towards the opposition goal. After dodging a few opponents in his path, he scored a huge goal by shooting with the outside edge of his foot.
What caused a stir, especially in Lionel Messi’s country, was Campas’ celebration, in which he celebrated “like a CR7”. The midfielder shouted “yessss” in typical Cristiano Ronaldo celebration style. His companions joined in the festivities, and much laughter ensued. That didn’t change until the end of the game.
The Tumaco native was specifically asked about his celebration on the soil of the world champion and he responded: “Everyone has their own taste, Messi is a very good player, but I like Cristiano”This statement caused a heated discussion among several Argentines, who “slaughtered” him in the comments of different social networks.
“Who is Campas?” Some of the comments read in the publication were “Poor Messi, he won’t be able to live on”.
However, it didn’t end there, and when he was asked one of the most quintessential questions in football in recent years, “Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?”, the Colombian didn’t hesitate to make it clear: “I always choose Cristiano.”
For now, thanks to Jamington Campas’ goal, Rosario Central is in Division 12 of Group B of the Football League Cup The Argentine professional team has 5 points and is unable to qualify for the final rounds of this tournament.
Now, their next game will be against Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata. The match will take place next Saturday, September 23, at the Juan Carmelo Zerillo Stadium, also known as “El Bosque”.
