Colombia-Brazil Superstar Showdown
For Colombia and Brazil, the World Cup games get bigger, the stakes get higher, the pressure rises and two superstars are simply taking off like rockets. Colombia goes up against host Brazil in a World Cup quarterfinal showdown that matches two of the most electrifying players in the global competition – James Rodriguez of Colombia and Neymar of Brazil.
Rodriguez has been a revelation and he has scored in all four of Colombia’s matches. The 22-year-old, who has put Colombia’s in its second quarterfinal since 1990, has a World Cup-leading five goals and Colombia has outscored its opponents by an overwhelming margin of 11-2.
Rodriguez has scored or assisted on seven of the goals and he is easily the new, breakout star of the World Cup.
Neymar is also just 22 and he has scored four goals while carrying the heavy burden of responsibility as the face of Brazil as the World Cup host country. Brazil is looking for its sixth World Cup title and Neymar is generally acknowledged as the one who must make it happen.
