But the Liverpool star’s father was reunited with his jubilant friends and family after finally being released by the rebel group who captured him on October 28 last week.
Then the 26-year-old and his dad emotionally reunited this week after the winger arrived in Colombia for international duty.
And Diaz celebrated his release in stunning fashion by securing his country’s stunning comeback to bolster their hopes of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup.
