It was Colombia vs Argentina. Both teams were very good and had excelent players but most people expected Argentina to win since they had much more fame and were very good in the world cup. The soccer game had 75,000 spactators. People after the game said that it was 5 goals but it felt like a million. That day there were 23 players playing. You might be thinking why 23 and not 22 since thre are 11 in each team. Well thats because the Argentina team did a substitution.
