Argentina and Germany will play for the World Cup Sunday, but regardless of the result, Colombian star James Rodriguez is the tournament’s biggest winner. Rodriguez scored six goals in five games (he still leads all scorers), including what is arguably the most beautiful goal of the year against Uruguay.

Colombia lost to Brazil in the quarterfinals, but returned home as heroes (More than 90,000 fans greeted the team in Colombia). Rodriguez, who transferred to AS Monaco in 2013, has quickly become the most desired player in the world. Real Madrid are rumored to be interested in Rodriguez, and he said it would be a “dream” to play for the club.
