James Rodriguez takes Golden Boot with 6 goals

July 13, 6:14 PM

Following a World Cup final where Thomas Müller and Lionel Messi failed to add to their goal-scoring totals, Colombia's James Rodriguez is set to receive the Golden Boot award for finishing the World Cup as the tournament's top scorer.

Rodriguez notched six goals in five appearances, scoring at least once in each of Colombia's matches. None of his goals, however, were as impressive as the left-footed strike he scored in the round of 16 against Uruguay.
