The journalist Diego Rueda referred in the program Connection, of Win Sports, to the absence of James Rodriguez in the convocation of the Colombia selection for the triple date of October. It is no surprise because he comes without competition rhythm and he will also complete 15 games without wearing the tricolor, however, he took the opportunity to throw one or another dart.
“He agrees with Benítez, who was not here to play and that he was a player who per season could barely resist for 50% and it seems that everything is true. The facts are showing that, all those people who have had differences with James Rodríguez, they are right. “
And he added: “Too bad because I still think he is the best Colombian player, but as long as he is not physically there to play, at least in Qatar, a call-up is impossible.”
James Rodríguez was one of the men most requested by Colombian fans through social networks for the matches against Uruguay, Brazil and Ecuador. According to a poll conducted by FUTBOLRED, 51% of readers asked for his return. Beating other players like Éder Álvarez Balanta and Johan Mojica, whom they did summon this time.
Reinaldo Rueda decided not to cite James this time, as he has barely added his first days at Al-Rayyan and needs a competitive pace to return to the coffee team. Surely in November, when Colombia will face Brazil on the road and Paraguay at home, it could be back if the coach requires it.
