Fleet-footed and energetic, Johan Mojica is a left full-back by trade, but he can also play in other defensive positions, as well as on the wing, where his high level of fitness allows him to tirelessly sprint up and down and deliver pinpoint crosses. Despite his attack-minded approach, the 25-year-old does not neglect his defensive responsibilities.

Prior to Colombia’s friendlies in March of this year, Mojica had not pulled on a Colombia jersey since 2015, when he made his international debut, but after his remarkable season in Spain's La Liga with surprise package Girona, Jose Pekerman decided to being him back into the fold. The adaptable left-footer has made significant progress in his game in the meantime, to the extent that he may now be capable of competing with the first-choice left-back, Frank Fabra, for a place in the Cafetero's starting XI.
