Rodriguez volley named Goal of the Tournament

FIFA has crowned Columbia’s James Rodriguez’s goal against Uruguay the Goal of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The strike has been voted as the Goal of the Tournament by over four million users, beating Robin van Persie’s genial header for the Netherlands against Spain into second place.

Rodriguez became the third successive South American winner of the award, after Argentina’s Maxi Rodriguez triumphed for his thunderbolt against Mexico at Germany 2006 and Diego Forlan was rewarded for his sublime effort for Uruguay in the third-place play-off at South Africa 2010.

According to reports, the midfielder is on the verge of signing with Real Madrid from Monaco in a deal reportedly worth £60m.
