RIO DE JANEIRO, June 28 (Reuters) - James Rodriguez scored
with a spectacular volley to give Colombia a 1-0 lead over
Uruguay at halftime in their World Cup last-16 match on
Rodriguez controlled the ball on his chest before swivelling
and hitting a sublime volley from 20 metres which went in off
the underside of the crossbar.
Uruguay defended resolutely but posed little attacking
threat with leading striker Luis Suarez serving the first game
of his nine-match suspension for biting an opponent.
