Colombia earned a deserved 2-0 victory over Uruguay to qualify for a quarter-final against Brazil in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. James Rodriguez scored two more goals. The Ligue 1 top assists provider was unstoppable on the pitch of the mythical Maracana.
At just 22 years of age, James opened the scoring with a magical chest control and volley (28'). A contender for goal of the tournament, James then netted another five minutes after the break. It was an historic double that fired Los Cafeteros to a 2-0 win over Uruguay, equaled the country's all-time record of 11 matches without defeat and qualified for the quarter-finals against favourites and host nation Brazil on 4 July in Fortaleza.
James was named Man of the Match by FIFA for the third time in four matches... 5 goals, 2 assists, the AS Monaco playmaker was once again the difference. Bravo.
