The adidas F50 adiZero is becoming the star of the 2014 World Cup. After the Group Stage and Round of 16, the adidas speed cleat is the most lethal cleat in Brazil with a total of 41 goals backing it up.
The goal tally is impressive but even more eye-catching is the fact that 6 of the top 10 goal scorers in Brazil are wearing the cleat.
Colombia’s James Rodriguez is leading the pack with 5 goals. The AS Monaco attacking midfielder has scored in each of Los Cafeteros’ first 4 games. He is the only player to have scored in all of his team’s games.

The Argentine scored in each of the first 3 games and provided the assist for game winner in the Round of 16 to Angel Di Maria, who happens to wear the adidas Predator Instinct. Die Mannschaft’s Muller is 1 of only 2 players to have scored a hat trick on the way to his 4 goals.
France’s Karim Benzema, and the Netherland’s Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie all have 3 goals to their credit thus far.
