Rodriguez burst on to the international stage at the last World Cup in Brazil, winning the Golden Boot Award with six goals and helping his team to the quarter-finals. He has since won two FIFA World Club titles with Real Madrid and is now an influential figure in the German club champions, Bayern Munich.

NowUC Predictor: Round-of-16
Colombia should be able to beat Japan and Senegal in the group stage but will encounter an impressive Poland side in vying for top spot in Group H. If Los Cafeteros manage to win the group, they will most likely run into England in the round-of-16.
