Having lost their talismatic striker Luis Suarez to suspension, Uruguay endured a tough night where they failed to score in the knockout fixture
James Rodriguez scored what is being touted as the 'goal of the tournament' to put his side in the lead in the first half and then scored early in the second half to dent Uruguay's comeback bid.
Uruguay eventually bowed out of the tournament as they failed to score after conceding two goals.
The Colombian fans rejoiced as their national side put on a stellar performance to make it to the last eight of the FIFA World Cup.
