Rodriguez scoops Portuguese award

posted by Simon Willis

Colombian soccer star James Rodriguez was rewarded for his sensational form by being voted the best player in Portugal for the months of August and September.

The Porto attacker was announced by the Portuguese Professional Football League (LPFP) as the player who received most votes from an online pole of supporters in the country.

Rodriguez discovered his scoring form recently with three goals in his last four games for the Portuguese giants, including a match-winning strike against Paris St Germain in the Champions League last week.

The 21-year old was understandably delighted with the award and dedicated it to the Porto supporters via a post on his Twitter account.

Rodriguez is set to line up for Colombia as they take on Paraguay in a World Cup qualifying match on Friday.
