Neymar and Rodriguez to duel in World Cup quarters

FORTALEZA, Brazil (AP) — Brazil striker Neymar and Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez have led their teams to the World Cup quarterfinals, dominating the attention and the scoring. The 22-year-old stars will go head-to-head when Brazil plays Colombia on Friday, when only one will get the chance to continue his run at the tournament. Wearing the No. 10 jerseys, both have lived up to expectations so far, enough to be included in discussions about the tournament's best players, along with established stars such as Lionel Messi and Arjen Robben. Neymar has been decisive for Brazil, scoring four goals in four matches. Rodriguez has been crucial for Colombia with his tournament-leading five goals.
