Colombia star, James Rodriguez had a World Cup to remember this year scoring six goals in five games and leading his team to the quarterfinals. Today, he had a birthday to remember as the young soccer superstar turned 23 years old. Hashtag: #FelizCumpleJames was one of the top trends in both the United States and the world before the World Cup Final, and after the match, Rodriguez was rewarded with the best present of all, the FIFA 2014 Golden Boot.

Rodriguez was the breakout star of the tournament and has clubs across the world rumored to be bidding for his services. His goal against Uruguay in the round of 16 has been voted the best goal of the World Cup tournament.

Germany’s Thomas Mueller finished second and just one goal away from being the first player to ever win consecutive Golden Boots at back to back World Cups. Lionel Messi and Brazil’s Neymar finished fourth with four goals each, respectively.

Rodriguez can thank his teammate, Juan Camilo Zuniga for the hit he laid on Neymar in their quarterfinal match with Brazil. Neymar broke a vertebra in his back when he was kneed by Zuniga in the closing minutes and missed the rest of the World Cup. Nobody knows for certain, but Neymar would have had a realistic chance to score two goals in two games and steal the Golden Boot away from Rodriguez.

Rodriguez walked off the pitch after that game in tears, but can smile now as he takes home a piece of hardware that he will never forget.

The Colombian start took to Twitter and Instagram to thank his fans in Spanish, French and English as well as post a picture of his new prize:
