James Rodriguez's strike vs. Uruguay voted World Cup's best goal
Colombia's James Rodriguez scored the World Cup's best goal, according to four million voters on FIFA.com.
Colombia’s James Rodriguez scored the goal of the World Cup, as decided by more than four million FIFA.com voters.
In the 28th minute of Colombia’s Round of 16 matchup against Uruguay, Rodriguez chested down a seemingly harmless header from a teammate, pivoted to his right and cracked a left-footed volley searing towards Fernando Muslera’s net. Estadio Maracana, where the final was played two weeks later, erupted.
Rodriguez’s strike – one of six goals the 23-year-old breakout star scored – bested goals from Australia’s Tim Cahill and Holland’s Robin Van Persie. Cahill’s was named CBSSports.com’s goal of the tournament, ahead of both Rodriguez and Van Persie’s flying header. Van Persie's came in second in the FIFA vote.
Rodriguez saw his stock soar in Brazil and he's reportedly on the verge of signing with Real Madrid.
