Apart from these comments, some reference points to try to understand the football ‘slump’ of James are in the injuries he suffered during this season and in the figures he reaped during his first year in the Everton.

In the first part, according to the specialized media ‘FutbolRed’, during the 2020/2021 season, Rodríguez had four injuries that kept him from playing key games for his team.

This resulted in 23 appearances with the shirt of the Everton, team in which he scored six goals in his first year in England.

According to data from ‘ESPN’, this was Rodríguez’s third worst scoring record since he played in Europe, since in the 10/11 season he scored four goals for FC Porto and in the 19/20 season he celebrated just one goal wearing the elastic of Real Madrid.

Of course, these irregular numbers are far from those of his ‘great times’, such as those he obtained in the 11/12 (FC Porto) and 14/15 (Real Madrid) seasons, when he carried out 13 goals in each team.

It is worth saying that, for many, James’ participation at Everton had positive repercussions despite low scoring records. However, during the last meetings with the ‘toffees’ he had physical problems that, just, ‘tied’ with the supposed low performance that took him away from the America Cup.

While public opinion continues to debate about James, the case of this footballer opens the count of other Colombian athletes who were subjected to some type of bullying while going through downturns in their sports career.

This downturn in Bernal’s performance led some to speculate about his triumph in the Tour of Francia of 2019 and said that, supposedly, he had earned it by luck and not because of his talent and the physical conditions that he has.

Fortunately, Bernal recovered and this year won the Tour of Italy, leaving a clear message to those who questioned it at the time.

Will the critics have gotten back on the ‘bus’ of triumph?

According to data from ‘ESPN’, in the 14/15 season, Falcao scored four goals wearing the ‘Red Devils’ elastic, while in the following season he scored only one goal with the ‘blues’ shirt.

Atlético de Madrid, from Spain, as he scored 52 goals. During his time at Monaco, Falcao scored a total of 65 goals while at FC Porto he scored 28 goals.

Despite the criticism, Falcao continued with his work and, after returning to Monaco in the 16/17 season, he again achieved goalscoring records that cleared the doubts of his critics.

Although for many the absence of Falcao in the America Cup It is a notorious blow to the Colombian forward, others believe that ‘El Tigre’ has already completed its cycle with the ‘tricolor’ and it is time to give way to scorers in better moments. Duván Zapata, for example, shines with his own light in Atalanta, as well as Santos Borre in River Plate and Borja in Junior.

I had discussions with myself and with other colleagues”.
