Alfredo Morelos earns rave review as Rangers striker wins over James Rodriguez
The Colombia icon reckons the 29-goal Ibrox striker is going all the way to the top after forcing his way into the national team squad.
Alfredo Morelos has been labelled the 'future of Colombian football' by Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez.
The 29-goal Rangers striker came on as a sub to win his second cap for his country in Colombia's midweek win over Japan.
And on-loan from Real Madrid star Rodriguez believes the Ibrox hitman has a huge future ahead of him in the game.
He said: "This was a new squad out there and there were many players in the team who didn't have a lot of international experience.
"Players such as Alfredo Morelos , who can be the future of football in our country.
"He has a lot of talent and has all the qualities needed to be a top player for us.
"Alfredo is young, has had a great season and is a top striker. He was called up ahead of more experienced strikers so that tells you that our manager Carlos Queiroz rates him very highly.
"Of course, he still has a lot to learn, but he seems to be improving all the time and he is going tobecome an important player for Colombia."
Morelos has taken his game to the next level this season under Steven Gerrard and has been linked with a host of clubs such as Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt.
The forward penned a new deal at Ibrox earlier this month which keeps him under contract until 2023.
