The Colombian national team captured the imagination of many a fan during the 2014 World Cup, but we doubt even they expected this grand of a reception upon their return to Bogota.
The streets of the capital were a sea — no, an ocean! — of yellow, blue and red. The star of the team, James Rodriguez, remains the tournament’s current top goalscorer with six goals, and was arguably the top performer overall. It was also James who couldn’t resist getting in on the latest craze.
Why not take a selfie after all, when there are over 100,000 people screaming your name behind you?

Could you imagine if the Cafeteros actually won the thing?!
