Colombia celebrates Brazil World Cup with sheep football

Some unlikely players took centre stage in a football match held by residents of a small Colombian town

A herd of sheep, representing Colombia and Brazil, wore matching team football jerseys, shorts and shoes.

The two teams of sheep were herded into a field to go head to head to see which team could score the most goals.

The event was held in the run up to the start of the football World Cup which begins later this month in Brazil, but also to celebrate World Ruana Day, Ruana being ponchos made out of wool.

The four-legged players were representing real-life players, including Brazilian players Robinho and 'Hulk,' who will be participating in the World Cup.
