MADRID - James Rodriguez hopes the scoring streak that earned him the Golden Boot award at theWorld Cup continues after his move to European champion Real Madrid.

Now the 23-year-old must earn his place in a star-studded attack already featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.
James tells The Associated Press that "I have big hopes ... but first I have to train well and earn my place in the team so I can play regularly and win titles."
