James Rodriguez has been reportedly told he may leave, by Real Madrid manager Zinedine ZidaneReuters

Much like his club woes, Rodriguez has been notably vocal about his feelings for his national team. As Colombia stuttered and struggled to book a place in Russia, Rodriguez off the pitch behaviour clouded his fame. However, on the pitch, the midfielder has been unstoppable with six goals and four assists in the qualifying campaign. Colombia will look for Rodriguez to guide the team as they seek consistency hoping to squeeze past the quarter-finals this time around.
