The presence of this Latin American country will be extended beyond music and dance. Guacamole, the dish that cannot be missed this Sunday, will have the Colombian touch thanks to more than 541 tons of avocado that were exported for the game from Cartagena to the United States.

“The commercial and sporting dates worldwide will always be a good scenario for Colombia to continue making its national flavors and talent known.
