James Rodriguez and the giant grasshopper
When Colombian star James Rodriguez turned around to celebrate converting his penalty kick, a guest had landed on his arm.
We thought it was the result of a sneaky Photoshop job but yes, a giant insect did make an acquaintance with the 22-year-old Colombian star during the quarter final game between Colombia and Brazil on Saturday morning (Jul 5).
Twitter users of course reacted to the incident.

It was apparently not the first time that a grasshopper made its appearance in the World Cup.
Italian coach Cesare Prandelli chilled with one during Italy's group match against England.
Unfortunately, James Rodriguez will not be part of the World Cup festivities anymore as Colombia crashed out after losing to Brazil 2-1.
We will, however, be on the lookout though for giant grasshoppers in upcoming games.
