Colombia, one of the dark-horse picks to go deep in this summer's World Cup, made its debut in Russia this morning. The country is taking on Japan. The contest is currently tied.
James Rodriguez, arguably the team's best player, was not able to start in today's contest. He's dealing with a lingering injury.
Hopefully, Rodriguez will be able to make a full recovery and still be a major factor in this World Cup. He's certainly one of the most-exciting players in Russia.
Rodriguez at least has some very nice off-the-pitch support while he's recovering from his injury.
The soccer star is dating Helga Lovekaty, a model with more than 4 million followers on Instagram.
Rodriguez reportedly met the lovely Helga through Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo. They've been together for a while now.
Helga is in Russia, supporting her man.
Colombia next plays in the World Cup on Sunday. They'll play Poland at 2 p.m. E.T.
