David Luiz tells fans to applaud crying James Rodriguez (Video)

Colombia may have lost in the quarterfinals of the World Cup to Brazil 2-1, but James Rodriguez certainly made his mark on the tournament as the breakout star.

Rodriguez scored in each of Colombia’s matches, including a goal on a penalty kick to put Colombia on the board Friday. He exited the tournament as the leader for the Golden Boot with six goals.

The Brazilian players were well aware of Rodriguez’s brilliance throughout the tournament and wanted to see him receive the recognition he deserved. As seen in the video at the top, Brazilian captain David Luiz instructed the fans to applaud a crying Rodriguez.

Luiz also consoled young James, and the two traded jerseys.

The look on Rodriguez’s face after the match was heartbreaking, but he has nothing to feel badly about:
