James Rodríguez approved on his return to the Colombian Selection. He was the captain of a team that beat Venezuela 3-0 in Barranquilla in mid-march in their debut for the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
Low profile and performance. Under these two criteria, the 10th put on the Colombian shirt again in 74 minutes of silent work. He started near the right wing but understood that the game was going on the other side.
James ran to the center. From there he exerted his influence. The ball went through his criteria to assist Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, simplify the departure of Wilmar Barrios and Jéfferson Lerma, in addition to launching centers for the attackers in the area.
He lacked more prominence in the area, although he compensated with the support to adjust the balance when the team needed to recover the ball. In the second half they punished him with kicks, a warning that Carlos Queiroz took note of to take him out at 74 minutes.
He was replaced by Steven Alzate and the National Team felt that 3-0 was enough to certify the triumph in Barranquilla. On Tuesday he will visit Chile in Santiago, a place that has favor. In his last two visits he added four points and scored two goals.
