James Rodriguez pulls Colombia within a goal

Colombia looked a bit dead in the water when Brazil put them down 2-0, but they've pulled one back from the penalty spot. Julio Cesar was shown a yellow card after committing this foul, which led to the referee pointing to the spot. It was a good call -- it was a clear penalty, but not denial of a clear goal-scoring opportunity.

James Rodriguez stepped up to convert, scoring his 6th goal of the tournament, which is tops in the World Cup. He also played the pass to set up the penalty in the first place, and he's the only consistent attacker on his team in this game.
