Colombia ace James Rodriguez says that it is a "dream come true" to have scored a World Cup goal following the 3-0 win over Greece.

Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez has described his goal in the 3-0 demolition of Greece in Saturday's World Cup clash as a "dream come true".

The AS Monaco star capped an impressive performance by the South Americans by scoring in the dying stages as Jose Pekerman's side won their Group C opener in emphatic fashion.

"Greece are a strong team defensively, but we stayed solid and patient enough to wait for spaces to open up going forward," he told reporters at full time.

"I'm happy because we've won the game and because I scored, and that was a dream come true for me."

Colombia resume their World Cup by facing Ivory Coast on Thursday.
