Everton’s participation in the 2021 Florida Cup peaks. The English team defeated the Millonarios in a decisive battle (10-9. Penalty shootout), this Wednesday they won 1-0 against Poomas de Mexico.
James Rodriguez attracted worldwide attention. Not only to be the best person on his team, but also to decide that coach Rafa Benedes will get his place in the starting eleven.
Although his performance against Albizulus was very weak, some very interesting things were seen against the Mexicans this Wednesday.
For this second game in the United States, James started as an alternative. Benedett’s criticism was clear, this time he chose to set it aside in the second half. Quality alone is not enough.
His entry showed specific details. When he was a playmaker against Milos, he was used as a right-winger against Poomas. The same position he had with Carlo Ancelotti.
From there the change was seen. In the attack, he immediately cut inwards to get the full panorama of the field; In defense, he advanced with Broadhead and Tagore took charge from the right.
Kukuttino’s first appearance started the second half when he got his right hand and wanted Gordon to leave the goal alone, but the latter did not reach it.
He took something he didn’t have in the previous game towards the goal. First it had to be deflected by the left foot and then placed into that area with a shot, the match goalkeeper kept well.
Precisely this last option revealed a movement that Benedettes was definitely working on. Bradhead, considered the 9th, throws wings to beat one another and sends the centers back so that a team player, always James, can win the bid. The young man came out of the middle and the Colombian came on as a playmaker.
So, it was an important presentation of No. 19, clearly he still needs to be prepared, especially in the body area, but he already shows important features: bids, forward moves, front changes.
