Independence Day is an occasion the Americans cherish ever year and this year the Colombians will be just as jubilant.

Colombian president Manuel Santos has announced that there will be a half-day holiday on Friday so the country can get behind their heroes when they take on hosts Brazil.

The Colombians have been on of the surprise packages of this year’s World Cup reaching the quarter-final of the competition for the first time.

Santos has declared: “I want to announce to all government workers that, by civic decree, Friday afternoon will be a public holiday so that everyone can watch the game.”

All employees will be authorised to leave their work place at 1pm, unless you work in the health and safety departments (for obvious reasons).
