Sadly, El Tri also lost 1-2 to the Netherlands. It was a long shot. I mean, they were playing against a team that is arguably the undeclared World Cup champion, as well as paid-off referees and a racist Dutch airline.
After 120 minutes of play that rendered Brazil and Chile tied at 1-1, a series of cruel and agonizing penalty kicks gave the win to the host country, and ripped La Roja‘s position as “Most Unlikely to Succeed,” (a position now solely held by Costa Rica).
And, as if it wasn’t enough to crush one Cinderella story, Brazil bitch-slapped Snow White in a resounding defeat of Colombia, 1-2. Sadly, Los Cafeteros are never going to dance again…at least not in this World Cup.
