I think this is one of the weirdest things you've ever defended. You're admitting James is usually very good at taking set pieces. How does any discussion go beyond this? If someone is good at taking set pieces and the other one is not, the person who's good at them should take them, no? How does the discussion go beyond this?? Cuadrado takes free kicks for Juventus at times. He is not the designated taker. And now that you've brought up Juve, please show me evidence of him assisting on set pieces for them. If he did, at even a quarter of the rate James does, maybe there'd be a case. HE DOESN'T. Qatar vs yellow? Do free kicks and corners work differently in different leagues? Was James not assisting off set pieces for his entire career prior to this, for club and country? James' behavior might be reason to not call him up to the team. That's a separate argument. Once Rueda decided to call him up and to field him, what does any of that have to do with the game at hand and--the whole point of this discussion--whether Cuadrado should take a corner over him? If you've decided to put him on the field--despite this childish behavior that you brought up--why would you put a restriction on the thing he does that has never been affected by his fitness? Why would you restrict him from doing something that gives us a better chance at scoring than anyone else can? And once again, Rueda clearly is not restricting James from taking the set pieces as he took most of them in that game. This is purely a selfish decision from Cuadrado to rob corners from somebody who is far better at them than he is. Once again: pure selfishness, poor leadership.
