England hallucinates with James

The English press raves about the Colombian after his debut at Everton. "The center of the field and the possession were governed by him", indicates The Independent.


"He has trained only a couple of times with us and the level he has given has been incredible," said Carlo Ancelotti, his coach and main supporter for his signing for Everton, who was the first to be surprised by the great game of the Colombian James Rodríguez. Just a few days after arriving in Liverpool, James has already excited the Everton fans after his great game against Tottenham Hotspur, in which the Toffees took the victory by 0-1.

The Colombian played 91 minutes and was substituted in the discount, but by then he had left a very pleasant residue on the fans, on his coach and on his own colleagues, who have been quick to praise him. Jermaine Jenas, a regular at UK football gatherings and former Tottenham Hostpur player, highlighted the global star status that James has brought to Everton and his ability to create in midfield.

"James has been the differentiator for Everton this Sunday and that is exactly what Tottenham do not have at the moment," Jenas explained in an article on the BBC. "He has that star quality. What was talked about when he arrived is if he was going to be in shape or not, but he has that ability to see things before they happen. It's just that he has that class," he added. Another former Tottenham player like Darren Bent also praised the Colombian and his ability to make the rest of the footballers around him benefit from his quality.

"That Dominic Calvert-Lewin (the forward who scored the winning goal) plays alongside footballers like James will benefit him and will achieve many more scoring chances," said the former Spurs. But not only the footballers have been dazzled by a James who even brushed the goal with a shot from outside the area in the first half that brushed the stick. The English press has reacted positively to the Colombian's debut. "Tottenham should have brought a ball for them, because the center of the field and possession was governed by James Rodríguez", headlined the British newspaper "The Independent" .

The Daily Mail, for its part, noted that James has seemed a different footballer in the Everton jersey than he has been in recent years, while "The Telegraph" speaks of an "exceptional" performance by the Colombian. This is a sample of the impact that James has had in the Premier League, a league in which he aspires to be a star, at Everton, and in English opinion, the one that will praise him when he does it well and will crush him when he connects matches not so good.
