Colombia player ratings v Uruguay: Rodriguez steals show

James Rodriguez wowed everyone in Brazil when he scored a stunning left foot volley to send Uruguay crashing out of the tournament.

David Ospina 7 - Made some really good saves, especially against Edinson Cavani and Maximiliano Pereira. Had a very sturdy game.

Juan Camilo Zuniga 7 - Played pretty well at right back and bombed it forward a lot giving his team plenty of opportunities.

Cristian Zapata 8 - Superb game from this man, went on a couple of incredible runs early and gave the Uruguayan defence lots of trouble.

Mario Yepes 8 - For a 38-year-old, Yepes certainly didn’t look his age, lead the defence line brilliantly and had an excellent game.

Pablo Armero 8 - Created lots of opportunities and did a really good job for Colombia, excellent cross in the build up for James Rodriguez’ second goal.

Carlos Sanchez Moreno 7 - Solid game from Sanchez, helped out in his sides attack and controlled the game from midfield.

Abel Aguilar 7 - Much like his midfield counterparts, looked in complete control and bossed Uruguay out the way.

Juan Guillermo Cuadrado 8 - Great game from Cuadrado, could have easily gone for goal, but nodded it back superbly for Rodriguez’ second.

James Rodriguez 9 - Blinding game, his first goal especially was a spectacle, that will be hard to beat for goal of the tournament. Now on five goals and four assists.

Jackson Martinez 7 - All part of the well oiled machine that is Colombia, fitted in perfectly with their attacking flow.

Teofilo Gutierrez 7 - Had another decent game, and will be especially pleased with his constant role within the team.
