The 26-year old delivered two absolutely gorgeous assists with his trusty left foot in the rout - one for Yerry Mina to open the scoring in the first half and a second stunning through ball for Juan Cuadrado to bag the third and send the 30,000 Colombia fans into dreamland.

It means that in the last two tournaments, no player has been involved in more goals than James.
