James Rodríguez was again happy. He played for Colombia, where he is the major star and the leader of the team. Pekerman knows and give him all the responsibility. The Real Madrid player scored one goal, gave one assist and missed a penalty. He was the best player of the game.
This time, James Rodríguez didn’t say anything after the game. Usually, when the Real Madrid player goes with his national team, he complaints about his situation in his club. If James continues playing that well, he also did a great job against Celta Vigo, Zidane will have more headaches because the Colombian might deserve an opportunity.
