After the three consecutive draws in La Liga Real Madrid had in the last matches, now is the moment for the national teams. Many players of Los Blancos are in the list of their national teams but there´s a player that surprised everyone because of his muscular problems.
James Rodriguez was going to be in the starting 11 in the midfield with Kroos and Isco. In the warm up before the game started, James Rodriguez had muscular problems and he couldn’t play the match. Kovacic replaced him in the line up and the Colombian midfielder had do some medicals tests.
With the problem James had, all the people thought that he will not go with his national team team to play the two matches they have for the qualifying of the World Cup of Russia on 2018. Colombia must play against Paraguay on Friday and Uruguay on Tuesday of the next week.
This is quite strange because James could not play the match of yesterday against Eibar and he should not be able to do it with Colombia, that’s what his Real Madrid thinks about it. After all, Real Madrid are the entity that pays James, and if the Colombian midfielder can’t play with Los Blancos nor he should play with Colombia.
The opinion of Colombia is the opposite as the one Real Madrid have. James will not play the first match Colombia have against Paraguay. The problem is that he will play the second game against Uruguay. For this reason, the Colombian midfielder should cross the world to play only one game and such a long trip is not good for his injury.
Pekerman knows James is the star of Colombia in fact, he is the captain of of his national team but maybe is not a good idea include James in the list because the injury can get worse. We hope everything goes well because James is a very important both in Colombia and Real Madrid.
