Sir Alex Ferguson compared him to Cristiano Ronaldo, and Carlos "El Pibe" Valderrama, the greatest to ever don the Tricolor shirt for the Colombian national side, said he has the potential to surpass him and become one of the finest to ever step on a field. Compliments and the potential of a prodigy don't come much higher than those bestowed upon James Rodriguez, known simply as "James."
Honored with Valderrama's No. 10 shirt, the attacking midfielder who can also play out wide has been a national team regular since he was just 20 years old. Match after match, he continues to demonstrate why in 2012 he became the youngest ever to win the Portuguese Golden Ball, given to the best player in the Primeira Liga, while playing for Porto. He's as mentally sharp as he is creatively gifted, possessing the ability to read the game astutely and play in a dominant, yet selfless style.
Now he plays alongside fellow Colombian star Radamel Falcao for AS Monaco after fetching one of the highest transfer fees in world soccer history, $60 million. Having helped guide Colombia to its first World Cup™ finals since 1998, even that lofty sum seems a bargain for a player destined to be on the tip of every tongue in soccer.
