Maybe it was better to go to sleep rather than looking undeterred that Colombia and Paraguay repeated at 3 am. It happens that you come across like that nostalgic dreams, in novels so full of mythical stories and characters that make us imagine staying on beaches around the world. But it's better that way, because football is above all this: inspiration and imagination. Flying with the thoughts and discover new people and places. You hear a child playing with friends of him in the tough streets of the barrio. It hopes that that soul so raw, genuine and tough can still exist in the Futbol. Because in the end those who are football men, in all their facets. And Higuita 's summed up, so to him, in the best way: "I'm not proud of everything I've done, I'm just a poor sinner."
And after all, dear "Loco", we all are.
