Coach Martín Demichelis decided to take him out to give him a rest around 21 minutes into the second half. As he left the field of play, he embraced the striker in a strong hug, who also said a few words in his ear.
“I am grateful for the victory. I had to go for the ball and say that it was mine,” Borja joked at the end of the match and recalled that it is not the first time that he has scored three goals in a game: he had already scored them with the Colombian Under 20 National Team, with Palmeiras and with Atlético Nacional.
