Video: This Fan Had the Best View in the House for James Rodriguez’s Wonder Goal

Colombia outclassed the USA during a resounding 4-2 victory in Florida last night, with James Rodriguez scoring a screamer from outside the box.

The Colombian fans had travelled to Tampa in their thousands – setting a new attendance record in the process – and were duly rewarded with a terrific showing from Los Cafeteros.

Radamel Falcao, Carlos Bacca and Miguel Borja were all among the goals for the visitors as they dismantled interim coach Dave Sarachan’s USA side.

And while you will undoubtedly see various angles of Rodriguez’s wonder strike which gave Colombia their lead, it appears that one of the supporters in attendance got the best view of the lot:


Rodriguez has earned a reputation for scoring from long-range over the years, a trend he has shown during successful spells at Monaco, Real Madrid and most recently, Bayern Munich.

The most memorable of the 27-year-old’s goals from distance probably remains his epic strike at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil… but this one came pretty close to toppling it!
