Video of the Day: 5-0

It seems like an eternity ago, but it was on this day in 1993 that the Colombian men’s soccer team recorded a historical 5-0 upset over Argentina on the final day for qualifying to the 1994 World Cup. The likes of “El Pibe” Valderrama, Fredy Rincon, and “El Tren” Valencia shocked the soccer world on a chilly Buenos Aires night fourteen years ago.

Since then Argentina has only lost twice to Colombia with their latest confrontation being a decisive 4-2 victory for los albicelestes in this year’s Copa America. But for one game los cafeteros caught all the breaks and played as close to perfect as possible (video link):
