james rodriguez …. is NOT pronounced like it is in the English name. ie. “jeimz”…. it is pronounce “hamez”
Pretty embarrassing when people who are supposed to be ‘in the know’ re: football cannot even pronounce some of the biggest stars’ names.
It happens even with commentators sitting alongside one another… one pronouncing a name correctly, another incorrectly. Arghhhh the frustration… 😛
PS. also apparently “yahmez” is also acceptable
no thanks bud
