Shortly afterward he was named the new Colombia national football team coach. His job was highly criticized by the general public after very bad showings against Uruguay and Chile in 2010 World Cup Qualifying matches as well as in the 2007 Copa America 2007. Jorge Luis Pinto took the Colombia national football team to one of the best starts in FIFA World Cup Qualifying in Colombian football history, obtaining 10 points out of a possible 16 points. However, due to several lackluster performances later on, Colombia ended in 7th place and failed to qualify to the FIFA World Cup 2010.
