What a difference 16 years make
In 1998, Colombia was eliminated of the World Cup 1st round, having scored just 1 goal, and 3 goals against.
Faryd Mondragon cries at the end of the last mach (against England, losing 2-0).
It seemed it was his last chance to be in a world cup.
Now, in 2014, he has the unusual LUXURY to retire at 43, as the oldest player in the World Cup EVER, having as his last game a World Cup match, with his team winning 4-1. He retires under his own terms, being as humble and work-driven as ever.
Now he cries because his dream has come true.
Believe in second chances. Never give up. Never surrender.
