Colombia's 2018 World Cup qualification campaign has not been plain sailing thus far, but Los Cafeteros got off to the best possible start against Bolivia on Thursday thanks to James Rodriguez.

In the 10th minute of the high-altitude game in La Paz, the Real Madrid star chested down a Carlos Bacca cross and drove an excellent shot across goal.

It marked James' first goal of this World Cup qualification cycle.

Shortly before the break, Bacca found the net with a similar shot across the face of the goal:
