James Rodriguez describes Colombia's upcoming quarter-final clash with Brazil in the World Cup as a "beautiful match".

Colombia star James Rodriguez has predicted a "beautiful" quarter-final clash with host nation Brazil in the World Cup.

Rodriguez single-handedly fired his nation into the last-eight stage of the competition with a 2-0 win over Uruguay, while the Selecao survived a tense penalty shootout to beat Chile.

Although the AS Monaco playmaker is relishing the showpiece, Rodriguez warns his Brazilian counterparts of just how lethal his team can be.

"Obviously, we have to watch Brazil closely. They have very good players and they play good football, but they'll have to watch us closely as well," he told reporters.

"There's no pressure, we have good players and we can be dangerous. I think it's going to be a beautiful match."

The contest is scheduled to kick off at 9pm on July 4.
