When teams take free kicks quickly it’s usually so they can keep their momentum in attack and hopefully create a decent chance on goal.
When Colombia takes a free kick quickly opponents will now have the extra concern that James Rodriguez is about to belt the ball into the back of the net.
The rising star did exactly that in the international friendly against Canada recently. After being fouled a fair distance from goal, Juan Quintero wasted no time in tapping the ball just in front of James, who promptly sent a missile into past the Canadian goalkeeper.
It was the only goal of the game, but would have been worth the price of admission alone.
