James Rodríguez registered his fourth league assist of the season in Everton’s 2-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.
The weekend win over the Reds was the Toffees’ first at Anfield in 22 years, and their latest result has lifted the mood at Everton for obvious reasons.
The Colombia international expressed his delighted to be part of the group that “made history” on February 20th.
However, the attacking midfielder is worried over his involvement in his country’s World Cup qualifiers against Brazil and Paraguay in March.
James Rodríguez joined video streaming platform Twitch on Monday, where he made his concerns known, as relayed by AS Colombia.
On the possibility of missing out on Colombia’s next two matches, James Rodríguez said: “I don’t know, really; because the issue is super complicated. When you leave, you have to do a ten-day quarantine when you return.”
“I don’t know how they are going to handle the issue, but they know that I always want to go to the national team. But I don’t know, let’s see what happens.”
The South American, who arrived at Goodison Park on a free transfer last summer, has opened the door to joining Colombian side Deportes Tolima in the future, in order to fulfil his childhood dream.
“James at Tolima? Why not? That was my dream as a child: to play for Deportes Tolima,” the ex-Real Madrid man added.
Given he’s 29-years-of-age, with plenty of football ahead of him, it’s unlikely the Tolima dream will happen soon.
