After 16 years, Colombia returns to the World Cup

Yep. The last time the Colombian National Soccer Team qualified to the World Cup was the 1998 championship in France. An article in Latino Fox News states it best, "Colombia's national soccer team pulled off an improbable comeback in World Cup qualifying, turning a 0-3 deficit against Chile into a 3-3 draw to book a spot in Brazil in 2014."

In just 240 days, the World Cup travels to Brazil in 12 cities. Brazil and Spain seem to be the favorite. The last time the famous team won the World Cup was in 2002 in Korea/Japan. According to my dad, Brazil needs to do what France did in 1998...cheat. No one can obviously prove this but money and the sport seem to go hand in hand. The World Cup will travel to Russia in 2018 and then Quatar in 2022. Yes. Quatar. The United States was a runner up for both years.
