Look at the fans in yellow, as they rise.
Seeing what James sees, the open man on the run.
The ball to Cuadrado’s feet. The ball hitting the net.
That 2014 Colombia magic is back.
James Rodriguez's pass to Cuadrado for the second goal is the best assist of the World cup so far

A throw-in from Poland. A deflection, a steal. A deke, from James Rodriguez. A touch, then another. Into space, down the line.
A quick glance up at the middle of the field.
A+ finish by Cuadrado
A++++++++++++++++ pass by James

Curled behind four defenders to the feet of Juan Cuadrado, making a full-sprint run from midfield into the attacking third.
A breakaway toward the keeper, and a smooth finish to his right.
Poland eliminated. Colombia twisting the dagger. Lifting themselves back up in the Group H standings, making up for the opening game loss to Japan.
Awesome view of amazing James assist. WHAT A BALL! 🇨🇴👏👏
Absolutely magnificent ball curled behind the defense for Cuadrado to run onto and score. You will not see a better pass or assist in #WorldCup2018.#POLCOL #Colombia #VamosColombia #James #COL pic.twitter.com/h6H8Hk32oc

From the team who hadn’t made a World Cup since 1998, then rode the magic of James Rodriguez to the quarter-finals.
Seeing this, seeing a stadium chock full of yellow shirts, the players dancing…
That 2014 feel is alive and well.

They play Senegal on Thursday.
With a loss, they’re out.
With a tie, anything could happen.
With a win, they could win the whole group.
In Samara, 10:00 a.m.
The final day of the group stage.
