FIFA have formally deemed James Rodriguez's volleyed goal for Colombia against Uruguay as the 2014 World Cup's best.

The strike was awarded the title after a vote on the FIFA website. Over four million votes were cast. 

According to FIFA.com:

Rodriguez exquisitely chested the ball over his head, swiveled instantly and unleashed a venomous, dipping volley which crashed in off the underside of the crossbar in front of over 70,000.

That strike has now been voted as the Goal of the Tournament by over four million FIFA.com users, beating Robin van Persie’s genial header for the Netherlands against Spain into second place.

RVP's goal had its merits, and Tim Cahill's volley early in the tournament against the Netherlands also had its supporters, but would you agree that James' strike was the best we saw in 2014?
