James Rodriguez has since light up this year’s World Cup tournament with some ranking him in the same level as Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He did not disappoint against Uruguay as he produced superb all round performance, scoring a sensational goal in the first half and adding another in the second half to give Colombia a well deserved qualification to the last eight.

Rodriguez goal could be the best goal of this season’s World Cup. He brought down the ball with his chest at the edge of the box and whacked a magnificent 20 yard dipping volley in off the woodwork.

The Monaco player scored his brace five minutes into the second half to send Uruguay out of the competition. Throughout the game, Uruguay looked toothless without their star man, Luiz Suarez, who is facing a ban after sinking his teeth on Italian Defender Chiellini.
