After an excellent performance in Brazil’s 2014 World Cup, Team Colombia will try to prove in Russia in 2018 that it belongs amongst planet football’s top squads
Everything seemed to be finally right after blowing out Panama in Orlando, 4-0.

There is no doubt. In Argentina, just by looking at the qualifying South American standings for the 2018 Russia World Cup people get nervous. The white and light blue squad ranks fifth with 22 points behind Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and Chile.
Geoff Hurst’ goal in the championship game of the 1966 World Cup or Diego Maradona’s hand score in the 1986 World Cup.
