Pics: Colombia star James Rodriguez was at Biffy Clyro and hanging out with the Kearney brothers last night (sort of)

Not only was the Colombian star putting Uruguay to the sword last night, he was also enjoying a gig and meeting two Irish rugby stars, all through the magic of cardboard.

Every World Cup needs a breakout star and while Colombia's James Rodriguez wasn't exactly a total unknown before Brazil, he is certainly a global star now. With a goal a game in the group stages, the Monaco man upped it last night by rattling in both goals in Colombia's 2-0 win over Uruguay in the second round, the first of which may well be the goal of the tournament.

One Waterford man, David Walsh, was already a big Rodriguez fan before last night, so big a fan in fcat that he brought a lifesize cardboard cut out of the Colombian to the Biffy Clyro gig in Dublin last night.

Rodriguez Biffy 1

As you might imagine, the cutout was popular with many of the gig goers...

And we know Rodriguez survived the crowd surfing as he was later snapped with the Kearney brothers, Rob and Dave.

We're eagerly waiting to see where else Rodriguez will pop when his team play Brazil on Friday night.
