Jhojan CAICEDO (number 5 in the picture) is a young Colombian defender that has recently broken through into the Boyacá Chicó first team. Unlike most young Colombian players, who only get games because of the under 19s rule, Caicedo has been playing full games - a significant achievement for a player so young.

Colombia Under-17s

Caicedo is a key member of the Colombia under-17s team that qualified for the upcoming World Cup in Nigeria. He was named in the under-17 Sudamericano dream team, alongside the likes of Gerson, Dodo and Coutinho of Brazil. However, he almost cost Colombia a place after being sent off in the dying minutes of the spicy qualifying play-off against Bolivia, but his team held on for a 2-1 win, having come back from a goal down.


Caicedo seems to have a little bit of a discipline problem. As well as his red card for the under-17s, Caicedo was sent off in his first game of Mustang II for two bookable offences, just 14 minutes into the game. He has also picked up another 2 bookings in the 3 complete games he has played since.


Having impressed at under-17 level on the national stage, Caicedo has played the full 90 minutes in the last 3 games for his club. Clearly, they think he can hold his own, as usually players his age start games to comply with Colombia's under-19s rule, only to be subbed within 20 minutes. With a player of his age capable of holding his own for a full 90, it will not be necessary for Chicó to play an extra young player who's not really good enough just for the sake of it. Whether Caicedo can hold onto a first team place just now is open for debate, but it is only a matter of time before he does. With a further opportunity to showcase his talents at the under-17 World Cup, the future certainly looks bright for this young defender.
