Sheep in Colombia go for the goal

NOBSA, Colombia - World Cup fever got started early Sunday in one Colombian town with some very unlikely players.

Sheep sporting soccer jerseys, shorts, and matching shoes took to the pitch for an friendly match.  One team represented Colombia, while the other wore colors of the World Cup host nation, Brazil.

Spectators cheered as the sheep kicked a ball around the field, and actually scored.  The event was held in part of the run-up for the World Cup, which starts in Brazil in two weeks.

The four-legged athletes were representing real-life players, including Brazilian stars Robinho and "Hulk."
