Robert Lewandowski's Pre World Cup Tweet To James Rodriguez Looks A Tad Awkward
Robert Lewandowski sent out a tweet to his Bayern Munich teammate James Rodriguez when Poland and Colombia were drawn in the same World Cup group, but his tweet looks a little awkward after last night's game.
The two nations met in Kazan after both losing their opening games in Group H and it was Rodriguez who stole the stole upon his return to the side.
James was the Golden Boot winner in Brazil four years back netting six goals as his country reached the quarter finals. And the Colombia captain lit up the footballing feast again last night, registering two assists, including potentially the pass of the tournament, in a 3-0 victory that knocked his club colleague Lewandowski and his Poland out of the tournament.
James Rodriguez should become the first player to quit club football to concentrate on World Cups :fire:- Dean Jones (@DeanJonesBR) June 24, 2018
Starved of good quality service from his teammates, skipper Lewandowski has been unable to add to his 55 international goals in the two group games and his tweet from December has resurfaced following him drawing a blank.

He told James he remembered his goals in Brazil, but that he hoped it would be the other way around.
While the post was probably done tongue-in-cheek, it's fair to say the tweet hasn't exactly aged well.

While Lewandowski could still open his World Cup account in the final game against Senegal, it's been a thoroughly disappointing campaign for him and his country.
Rodriguez, meanwhile, has inspired his country to their first win of the tournament and now gives them a pretty good chance of making the knockouts.
