James Rodriguez is now a Madridista!
The Colombian midfielder signs for Real Madrid after winning the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Brazil.
Goals, assists, dribbling, speed, talent and versatility. James Rodríguez (Cúcuta, Colombia, 12-07-1991) embodies all of these things. Real Madrid's newest signing was one of the sensations during the last World Cup, in which he scored six times on his way to receiving the Golden Boot thanks to some truly memorable goals, including his work of art against Uruguay, which was chosen as the goal of the tournament on a FIFA.com poll.
He was his country's star man in Brazil, where he was the key behind Colombia reaching the quarter-finals in the competition for the first time ever. FIFA named him man-of-the-match in three of the five matches he played in. As well as scoring, James also provided two assists during the World Cup.
Having only just turned 23-years-old, he has already won the Europa League, doing so with Porto in 2011. Real Madrid have strengthened with the addition of a spectacular footballer, who although still being quite young, has plenty of experience under his belt having played in Argentina, Portugal and France. He is an attacking midfielder with extraordinary vision who is capable of playing as effectively out wide as he is in the centre of the pitch.
