Some Everton fans have been buzzing as an update emerged on James Rodriguez.
As cited by the Daily Mail, the Colombian FA released a statement claiming that the former Real Madrid ace was ‘not at optimum level to compete’ in this summer’s Copa America and was subsequently dropped from the squad with question marks over his fitness.
Has Rodriguez been a success at Everton?
Rodriguez missed numerous games for the Goodison Park club through injury in the 2020/21 season, which ended up proving costly as they missed out on European qualification for next term.
While it is a shame that the 29-year-old will be missing out in playing for his country in the Copa America, some Everton supporters have taken a positive view from the update, as it means that he will now be able to fully focus on getting himself 100% fit in time for the new club season.
