Take a bow, James Rodriguez.

During the first half against Uruguay, the 22-year-old Colombian forward controlled the ball with his chest and then hammered a volley towards the top corner from 25-yards out which hit the bar and went into the net.

In what was one of the goals of the tournament so far, Rodriguez is now the leading World Cup scorer in Colombian history as he has four goals to his name after scoring in every game of the 2014 WC he has played in.

Watch the clip below of his tremendous strike, as Colombia surge towards the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time in their history.
