Our third FIFA World Cup match was a Round-of-16 game between Uruguay and Colombia.  I was excited about this game – but that was before Luis Suarez had biting Chielini and was angling for a move away from Liverpool FC.  Needless to say, I was in awe to finally make it to the iconic Maracanã, and enjoyed the festive mood.  As Jorge had mentioned, a South American game is at a different level, a higher quality of intensity than European matches.  He was right.  The singing was enthralling.  In the end, Colombia won by two wonder goals by James Rodriguez against a toothless Uruguayan attack.
