With Columbia beating Greece, now there are four Latin American countries who have won their first match in this 2014 World Cup Tournament in Brazil. Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Columbia have each won their first match and have shown that Latin America is indeed a soccer driven continent with quality players and coaches.
We still have three more Latin American countries that are due to play. Ecuador, Honduras and Argentina
At this rate, I believe that we have a very good chance of having one of these countries make it past the next round and play for the 2014 World Cup.
It’s unfortunate that today’s Uruguay Vs. Costa Rica has two Latin countries playing each other. As a Latino I would have loved to have these two countries play a non-Latin country thus making it easier for me to root. My feelings go out to both these countries that are like the Sweden’s of Latino America. No armies and a progressive government protecting our planet.
