FULL-TIME: James Rodriguez made all the difference tonight and his efforts see Colombia go through to the quarter-finals, while simultaneously sending Uruguay home. The No10's first goal will surely be in contention for goal of the tournament, and despite a late flurry from La Celeste, Los Cafeteros were too strong for Oscar Tabarez's team, and Colombia's win now sets up what should be a fantastic quarter-final fixture against Brazil on Friday, 4 July in Fortaleza.
