Watch: Real Madrid's James scores rocket free kick vs. Real Betis

Have yourself a match, James.

The Real Madrid midfielder scored an incredible free kick in the 39th minute vs. Real Betis on Saturday. The Colombian international's strike, which was hit with as much pace as it was bend, gave Los Blancos a 2–0 lead at home at the San Bernabéu. James assisted on Real's first goal of the match as well, a second-minute header by Gareth Bale. In the second half, Karim Benzema scored right after the break to make it 3–0 before James tallied his second of the night on a beautiful bicycle kick.

James scored 13 goals for Real during last season's La Liga campaign, and Madrid, which drew 0–0 in last week's 2015–16 league-opener at Sporting Gijon, will be hoping he improves upon that total this year. He's off to quite the start already.
