James Rodriguez of Colombia has achieved a historic milestone by breaking Lionel Messi’s record for the most assists in a single Copa America campaign. Following a challenging period after leaving Real Madrid, Rodriguez has found his form once again, particularly highlighted in the semi-final match against Uruguay.

Rodriguez’s record-breaking assist came in the 39th minute when he delivered a precise cross to Jefferson Lerma, who headed the ball into the net to secure Colombia’s lead. This assist was Rodriguez’s sixth of the tournament, surpassing Messi’s previous record of five assists in a single Copa America season, set in 2021.

The Colombian playmaker began his impressive campaign with two assists against Paraguay, followed by another against Costa Rica, and two crucial assists in the quarterfinals against Panama. Despite taking an early lead against Uruguay, Colombia faced defensive challenges after Daniel Munoz was sent off following a second yellow card. Uruguay brought on Luis Suarez in an attempt to turn the tide but failed to capitalize on their chances. The match concluded in a tense 1-0 victory for Colombia, propelling them into the final against Argentina.

Post-match, there were reported clashes between Uruguay players and fans, adding to the drama of an already intense encounter. Colombia’s path to the Copa America final has been marked by Rodriguez’s resurgence and pivotal contributions, cementing his legacy in South American football once more.
