The Colombian National Team will seek to extend its unbeaten streak this Friday, June 28, after facing Costa Rica at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, located in the state of Arizona, which is coming off a historic draw against Brazil.

“James has unique abilities, he was born with extraordinary skills. If you see, he makes almost no effort to play football. But he is always well positioned. “He has a magical leg and puts the ball where he wants,” said El Tino.

Likewise, he specified: “I think that the day it is reiterated, Yaser Asprilla will be there. I don’t think the National Team depends on James, I think the team depends on what everyone does. James gives it that category and class in the final part, but the National Team is a solid group.”

El Tino admitted that James Rodríguez has been the great figure of the National Team, so far, in the Copa América 2024, and expressed that he had a very good performance against Paraguay on the first date of the tournament, which he included in the ideal team of the working day.

The former footballer of the Italian team Parma has been one of the strongest critics that the Cucuteño midfielder has had, since it is no secret to anyone that James’ current performance in his clubs has not been the best in recent seasons.

Lorenzo’s team will seek to defeat the Ticos and seal their ticket to the quarterfinals of the continental tournament in advance. However, the team will have a significant loss for the game against the Central Americans, as John Jader Lucumí will not be in the starting lineup.

The private meeting between James and Lorenzo

The great form that James has been showing with the Tricolor during the last few matches has generated numerous reactions at international and national level. One of the first to speak out on this subject was Tito Puiccetti.

Through his personal TikTok account, the journalist revealed a detail that few knew about the captain of the National Team and Lorenzo, since he said that the first thing the coach did when he took office was to look for Rodríguez and meet with him in private.
