Colombia are dancing (and winning) again thanks to this brilliant James Rodriguez goal

Japan had levelled on the stroke of half-time thanks to a header from Okazaki.

COLOMBIA, THE TRUE South American purveyors of Joga Bonito at this World Cup, are cruising to top spot in Group C as they lead Japan.

Juan Cuadrado had given them a 17th minute lead from the penalty spot after  Yasuyuki Konno felled Adrian Ramos on a counter-attack.

Cuadrado made no mistake from 12 yards.

And it wouldn’t be a Colombia goal without a snazzy little dance move. This time, it was time for the Zombie-walk:

Colombia were back in business 10 minutes after the break, re-taking the lead thanks to his fine Jackson Martinez finish and he would double his tally in the final 10 minutes.
