Pablo Armero admits it was “a dream come true” to score for Colombia in the World Cup.
The full-back, on loan with the Irons last season, opened the scoring in the nation’s 3-0 victory over Greece.
“It was like a blessing. I thank God and my family, obviously as well as my teammates,” Armero told Sky Sport Italia.
“It is so emotional for me, as having scored in a World Cup is like a dream come true.
“We want to do well in this competition and go far with Colombia.”
