Bogota: Colombia returned to a heroes' welcome as thousands of fans packed the streets of Bogota.




Los Cafeteros were beaten 2-1 by Brazil during Friday night's quarter-final but their progression to the last eight represented a World Cup best for the country.

Midfielder James Rodriguez has been one of the stars of the tournament and he still tops the scoring charts with six goals.

That included his stunning volley in the 2-0 victory over Uruguay in the second round and he was on target from the penalty spot against Brazil.

The Colombians had captured the imagination of all neutral supporters and it appears their own fans were even more thrilled by their side's efforts, at least judging by the incredible scenes on their return as the squad enjoyed a rooftop bus parade through the capital.
