Colombia, World sensation
Colombia returned to a World Cup event 16 years later. He did it as head of series and with an excellent, but the best, generation of footballers in its history, although with a notable drop, that of its maximum star Radamel Falcao. That was a priori because at this stage of the championship it is no longer known if the loss of Tigre was a setback or a mere anecdote. With one of the most terrible forwards of the World Cup in Brazil and a happy and dynamic football, Colombia is facing one of the biggest and most beautiful challenges in the history of its football.
Make 20 years, in USA 94, Another excellent generation of Colombian footballers promised to wage war in the World Cup that was held in American lands, especially, behind the 0-5 that the Valderrama, Corner, Asprilla and company endorsed Argentina at home, in a historical humiliation for a football with as much level and tradition as the Argentine. Finally, Colombia passed through the USA 94 with more pain than glory and even his participation ended in tragedy after the murder of Andres Escobar a few days after the departure of the Colombians from that World Cup.
Two decades later the tables have turned. The James, Ibarbo, Jackson, Teófilo, Square, Yepes and the rest of the excellent group that has formed Colombia, they are having an excellent World Cup, winning with authority their pass to the quarterfinals where history meets them. The rival will be Brazil, the host, in a tie that promises a lot. The Colombians, whose dance to celebrate each of their goals have caused a sensation, They hope to carry out the crush that Uruguay made ago 64 years and cause a Maracanazo to a Brazil that has left many doubts in the four games they have played in their World Cup.
Colombians hope that the “Cumbia” is seen in front of the Brazilians. That would be a sign that the Colombian powder has exploded in front of the defenders of Scolari's team. Be careful that the possibilities are real as well as high. With a James who wants to confirm himself as the World Cup player and some luxury squires. The solution, we will know it 4 of July.
