James Rodriguez's goal for Colombia against Uruguay voted World Cup best goal

Four million FIFA.com users have voted James Rodriguez’s goal against Uruguay at the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup as goal of the tournament, beating Robin van Persie’s incredible header for the Netherlands against Spain into second place.
The goal is worth recalling. After 27 cagey opening minutes, Abel Aguilar headed the ball forward to Rodriguez just outside the area, although he had his back to goal. There was no immediate sense of danger, but this is a prime predator who sees when the kill is on before anyone else. 
He took the ball on his chest and then, lightning fast, on the turn, struck a sensational left-footed volley that dipped viciously before going in off the underside of the bar. The stadium erupted, neutrals along with Colombians, in recognition of sheer brilliance. 
With Argentina’s Maxi Rodriguez winning at Germany 2006 for his long-ranger effort against Mexico and Diego Forlan rated the best goal’s scorer for his sublime strike at the losers’ final in South Africa 2010, Rodriguez becomes the third successive South American footballer to win the award.
