Rodriguez volley voted goal of World Cup

Golden-boot winner James Rodriguez's stunning chest-down and volley against Uruguay has been voted the goal of the World Cup.

Rodriguez scored twice in his country's 2-0 last-16 victory over Uruguay on his way to ending the tournament as top-scorer with six goals.

His first goal in that game received over four million votes in a fan poll on FIFA's website.

A sublime header by the Netherlands' Robin van Persie against Spain came second.

Rodriguez has been linked with a move from Monaco to Real Madrid with some reports this Monday morning claiming a fee of €80million has been agreed for the striker.
