Kazan, June 16: Forward James Rodriguez and midfielder Wilmar Barrios were back training with the rest of the Colombian team four days before the side’s 2018 World Cup opener against Japan.
Both players missed the team training session on Thursday with muscle fatigue but returned to take part in training on Friday, reports Efe.
The full-23 man roster took part in Friday’s practice at Sviyaga stadium, near Kazan, with the media present for the first 15 minutes.
Colombia, who reached the quarterfinals four years ago in Brazil in their best-ever World Cup run, will play Japan on Tuesday, followed by Poland on June 24 and Senegal on June 28. IANS
