Same as Bale: James, in the squad list for Colombia despite injury

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 373

James Rodriguez is looking to be a part of the Colombian national team once more in the next international break. Despite the current injury and his increasingly important role in Real Madrid, Colombia's manager Queiroz has put him on the first official squad list.

In a similar situation to what has happened with Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez has been called up for the Colombian national team. The team's manager Carlos Queiroz published the first official squad list for Colombia's matches against Peru and Ecuador, with the Real Madrid player making the cut. 

The list is still expected to be shortened to a total of 23 players, but it looks like James Rodriguez will make an appearance this time for the friendlies on the 15th and 20th of November respectively. The decision comes as a surprise, as the Colombian star had decided to sit it out the last international break in order to focus on his progress with Real Madrid. 

According to 'AS', his decision to stay in Valdebebas to convince Zidane that he can play an important role in the Bernabeu did not go well, which is why he has now decided to answer Queiroz's call. 

After starting in Mallorca, he came off the bench against Galatasaray. Back in LaLiga, against Leganés and Betis, the captain of the Colombian national team did not make an appearance at all. 

James is still recovering from his physical problems, which means he is expected to be out of next Wednesday's match against the Turkish team. Besides, his presence against Eibar next Saturday is not confirmed either

In fact, in a press conference, Zidane confirmed that the former Bayern Munich player continues with his physical problems: "He is not available, has discomfort and we have to take it day by day. I can't tell you exactly what he has."
