The Everton of Carlo Ancelotti and the Colombians James Rodríguez and Yerry Mina continue their upward march and dreaming more than ever of returning to European competitions. This Tuesday they took a golden victory against Wolverhampton 2 to 1.
James didn’t have a brilliant match to attack, because with the injury of the front center of the ‘Blues’, Calvert-Lewin, the Colombian understood the sacrifice what had to be done to put pressure on the Wolves’ defenders. Task that he accomplished with Sigurdsson.

However, he had good associations, especially in the first half, on the right side, mainly with Iwobi. Rodriguez did not have shots to the arc, but yes two key passes for your team. In the first half, in fact, he made a deep pass that allowed a good arrival of the Nigerian winger.
In a role that is not his, Rodríguez made it clear that when it comes to running and doing defensive work you can do it too. The midfielder already knows the demands left by Premier League matches.
Yerry Mina, meanwhile, was solid in the defensive zone. The defender played the 90 minutes.
With today’s commitment, James Rodríguez arrives at 352 games in Europe with the clubs Porto, Monaco, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Everton. The cucuteño is eleventh Colombian player with more than 350 games played in European stadiums at all times.
