Colombia will now encounter the Brazilians and host star Neymar, who will be a good match for James Rodriguez. What is most accurate about this match is that the absence of Suarez for a biting dispute created another superstar on the pitch.
“I’d like to congratulate the whole of Colombia because they deserved this. It’s great to have a player like James Rodriguez, and his confidence was very high after our previous game,” Colombian coach Jose Pekerman, told media.

James Rodriguez is the first player to score in the first four games of a World Cup since Brazil’s Ronaldo and Rivaldo in 2002. Rodriguez is also the first player to score in each of his first four World Cup games since Italy’s Christian Vieri in 1998. Colombia have reached the quarter-finals of a World Cup for the first time in their history. Colombia have now won as many games at World Cup 2014 (3) as in their previous 13 games in the competition. Colombia wideman Juan Cuadrado has now provided four assists at the 2014 World Cup – more than any other player. Cuadrado is the first player to reach four assists in one World Cup since Italy’s Francesco Totti and Argentina’s Juan Riquelme (also four) in 2006.
