JAMES RO­DRIGUEZ (Colom­bia)

Inside Sport - - World Cup 2018 -

James emerged as a global star four years ago in Brazil, nab­bing the Golden Boot and join­ing up with Real Madrid’s cast of stars im­me­di­ately af­ter. The Colom­bian never quite found his place there, prompt­ing a loan to Bay­ern, where he’s since re­dis­cov­ered his world-beat­ing form. Still young – he’ll turn 27 just be­fore the fi­nal – his resur­gence has been per­fectly timed for Colom­bia, a trendy dark horse for 2018.
