James ready for Uruguay

James, a 32-year-old midfielder, is one of the players who commands the confidence of Néstor Lorenzo. The primary objective now is to meticulously prepare for the upcoming match against Uruguay and move past the memories of the disappointing 0-3 defeat at the Metropolitano, in which James Rodríguez was a starter.

James ready to assist Colombia once again

The Sao Paulo player understands his new role within the team. He is well aware that the Argentine coach no longer considers him untouchable, a message that was delivered through the first two matches. James made appearances for 15 minutes against Venezuela and 32 minutes against Chile, where he played a vital role in rejuvenating the attack in the final quarter of the pitch.

The experienced midfielder recognizes the significance of his presence for the younger players. Recently, he expressed his enjoyment in Brazil with regards to assisting those who are starting their careers. Colombia boasts several talented young individuals, with Jorge Carrascal expected to become the driving force behind the team’s ideas.

“I am thrilled and diligently preparing myself to support the team. Now at the age of 32, I can be a guiding presence for my teammates, both on and off the field. I am mentally prepared to fulfill that role. I am eager to support all the young players,” he emphasized.

On Monday 9 October, there will be a morning press conference, followed by an open training session in the afternoon. Lorenzo is now beginning to assess the best options to face a formidable Uruguay side at the Metropolitano Stadium on Thursday.
