James Rodríguez and a chance to shine

James Rodríguez and a chance to shine

Twenty-four year old James Rodriguez will have a golden opportunity to shine from the very opening match of the Copa America Centenario on Friday, in which Colombia faces host United States in Santa Clara (California, West) in Group A.

James has the confidence of coach Jose Pekerman, who considers him one of the leaders of the team.

"James is going to be very good. He is a fundamental player, a leader," Pekerman said Sunday after his team's 3-1 victory over Haiti in a friendly in Miami.
