James Rodriguez: David Luiz told me I was a good player
Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez has confirmed what David Luiz said to him after his side’s 2-1 defeat to Brazil in their World Cup quarter-final.
The Paris Saint-Germain defender, who netted the winner, was seen comforting Rodriguez at the end of a feisty contest at the Castelao.
“He told me I was a good player,” said Rodriguez, as reported by Football Italia.
“The truth is that having so many superstars hugging me did make me happy. We have to raise our heads now and thank Colombia for their support.
“We are sad because we wanted to keep going and set new records. We gave everything to reach the semi-final, but we have to be proud because we played a great side.”
