    Colombia Wins!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     RovingRob photographed the elation amongst the local community in Cartagena, Colombia, after the Colombian team won their World Cup match on June 14. He says the celebrations were unbelievable. “The Colombian people very passionate about soccer and have had along hiatus from the World Cup,” he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Colombia is part of the World Cup after a 16 year wait. The first match versus Greece was a thing of beauty. Of course the victory was a crescendo of a country on the brink of something more.

    On the cusp of a presidential election that could shape the path of a third world country trying to break through to the next level, Colombia looks to the World Cup to prove to the world that that they have arrived.

    A party ensues!
