James Rodriguez Is The Breakout Star Of The 2014 World Cup
We all expected this to be the World Cup of Neymar - the 22-year-old goalscorer who wears the famous No. 10 shirt for Brazil and goes by a single name. James Rodríguez, has five goals in four games for Colombia. He has been the catalyst for a team that has taken on the Brazilian identity at this World Cup, playing a flamboyant, attacking style of soccer complete with choreographed goal celebrations. James plays more centrally than Ronaldo, and despite leading the World Cup in goals scored he's still more of a playmaker than a finisher. James hasn't just attracted attention from big clubs, he has become one of the must-watch players of the World Cup. "Football forces you to deal with a lot of situations, you have to handle these situations and we have a technical player who has every attribute of a top-notch player at a world level." "I greatly praise what he has been doing and I never had any doubts that this was going to be his World Cup. James Rodriguez's World Cup.". James next takes the field on Friday in the juiciest match-up of the World Cup so far, Brazil vs. Colombia.
