Watch 30,000 Colombia fans go wild at the London Stadium

Colombia beat Spain 1-0 in a friendly at the London Stadium last night, and Colombian fans made their voices heard.

Daniel Muñoz’s acrobatic strike in the 61st minute of the match sparked wild celebrations behind the goal.

Colombia fans celebrate stunning goal

A mazy run from Liverpool winger Luiz Diaz set up Muñoz at the back post, who swept the ball home with his right foot. It was the only goal of the game in what was Colombia’s first ever win against Spain. The South American nation are now unbeaten in 20 international matches.

La Roja dominated possession and large parts of the match, but were unable to score past Colombian goalkeeper, Camilo Vargas. It was Spain’s first defeat in eight matches.

Why was it played at the London Stadium?

The game was played at West Ham’s London Stadium due to a sponsorship agreement between Stage Front and the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). This deal also includes Spain’s match against Brazil at the Santiago Bernabéu on March 26, which is under the slogan ‘One Skin’ to raise awareness about racism in football.
