Yerry Mina was deeply upset after Colombia were knocked out of the World Cup on penalties by England. However, once he had calmed down, he spoke about his future at Barcelona. "I don't need to prove anything to anyone. God gave me my talent. What I need is to always play to the best of my ability and enjoy my football. My future? I'm always relaxed and I trust God."

The Colombian international will now have a few days on holiday but when he returns will need to have a conversation with Barcelona to discuss his future. It's clear that his status in football has changed at the World Cup but Barça have their non-EU spots covered and this means it's practically impossible he will be at the Camp Nou next season. There are offers on the table and Barcelona, alongside the player, must decide who Mina's new club will be.

On Colombia's elimination from the tournament, Mina said this: "We left everything out on the pitch but it wasn't to be. My goal made me incredibly happy. The Lord gave me that goal. The glory and honour is for him. I believe the referee influenced the match, he favoured them. For the penalty we asked him to consult VAR because we'd seen the English player throwing himself to the ground. Now we can't do anything. We're proud of what we've achieved."
