The Colombian National Football Team represents Colombia in international football competitions and is controlled by the Colombian Football Federation. It is a member of the CONMEBOL. The highest rank it ever reached in FIFA World Rankings was 4th in 1996.
Colombia had its strongest period in the early 1990s. A match during this period in 1993 resulted in a 5-0 win over Argentina which caused a special 'mutual respect' rivalry between both nations. The goalkeeper René Higuita achieved fame from his eccentric scorpion kick clearance against England at Wembley in 1995. Other stars from this team included Carlos Valderrama and Faustino Asprilla. During this era Colombia qualified for the 1990, 1994, and 1998 editions of the World Cup, only reaching the second round in 1990.
Colombia suffered over 3 world cup cycles between 2002 to 2010, failing to be as strong as it had been in the 1990s; unable to qualify for the FIFA World Cup since 1998. Colombia has had problems throughout this era living up to the legacy of the older generations that rose the team's reputation. This began during aftermath corruption in Colombia following the death of Pablo Escobar that led to the murder of defender Andrés Escobar (no relation to Pablo Escobar) for an own-goal at the 1994 World Cup. The aftermath had caused many star players to quit thus beginning the 'destruction' of the national team as well as ending the golden era for Colombian Football after the 1994 edition of the FIFA World Cup.
However, in recent times during the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Colombia has played with a new talented golden generation, bringing it's current rank to 9th place in the FIFA world rankings. Returning in the top 10 for the first time since 2002, nearly 10 years around the end of the previous golden era.
Since the mid 1980s, the Colombian National team has been a stronghold fighting the negative stereotypes towards the country's reputation. This has also made the sport very popular and made the national team a sign of nationalism, pride, and passion for many Colombians world wide. Thus, Colombia is known for having a very passionate fan base in both national and international games world wide. 
They were the champions of the 2001 Copa América, which they hosted and set a new record of being undefeated, conceding no goals and winning each match. Prior to that success they were runners-up to Peru in the 1975 Copa América. The team are nicknamed Los Cafeteros due to the coffee production in their country.
