James Rodriguez scored his sixth goal of the 2014 World Cup during Colombia’s 2-1 loss to Brazil, bagging a consolation from the penalty spot in the 80th minute.

There has been a lot of metaphorical weight on the 22-year-old’s shoulders during the tournament, but there was quite literally more weight on him when a gigantic insect landed on his arm while celebrating his spot kick.

The green creature might have been a cricket, a locust or another of Brazil’s 70,000 insect species. Rodriguez didn’t seem to notice its presence.

Colombia star James Rodriguez left the World Cup with six goals.

Rodriguez threw his side a lifeline late in the semi-final defeat by Brazil when he scored a penalty and celebrated the strike unaware.

The Monaco playmaker was crying at the end of the match in Fortaleza but the tears had nothing to do with his new sidekick.

Brazil had just ended the Colombians’ hopes of victory through an early striker from captain Thiago Silva and a stunning free-kick from David Luiz.
