Breaking News – Colombia Men’s National Team!

Earlier today, Seleccion Colombia’s management team delivered news to its fans.

The news being that James Rodriguez has been called off the team due to injury. Over the past few days, James underwent a variety of exams that proved the Colombian star will be unfit.

These news represent a massive blow for the Colombian national team. However, we wish James a quick and strong recovery so he can compete in the qualifying rounds for Qatar 2022.

Who will Replace James for Colombia Ahead of Copa America?

Following the news of James Rodriguez will be out, the team has looked for replacement options.

As of an hour ago, the team has announced that they have brought in Edwin Cardona.

The midfielder is set to join the team after his game in Argentina with Boca Juniors against Racing Football Team. Cardona is no stranger to the national team and in his time with the team, he has been a great option.

During the 2015-2017 World Cup qualifiers, Cardona played 15 matches, scored 3 goals and had 3 assists. Cardona has also been involved in previous Copa America competitions even when James Rodriguez was involved.

In Closing…

The news for the South American team are depressing and come at a horrible timing. Just recently, CONMEBOL had made the decision to strip聽Colombia’s co-hosting role due to the political unrest in the country.

For the Colombians, Copa America is a tournament they look forward to and it is one of the most followed competitions aside of the World Cup. James Rodriguez has been a sensational player for the team and one that the country has loved due to his talents.

Wishing Colombia best of luck in Copa America and wishing James a great recovery.
