The World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world, and when it rolls around every four years you can bet that there will be some crazy stories that emerge.

For example, Mexican fans apparently caused a mini earth quake after upsetting Germany in their first match of the tournament. Now apparently we’ve got intentional flight delays!

Following Colombia’s stunning late goal, that came in the 93rd minute of the game, the whole country wanted to watch. So much so that Bogota airport decided to literally delay every flight so that everyone could watch.


Unfortunately for the patient airline passengers, Colombia couldn’t finish the job. They looked better than England in extra time, and they even had to advantage at one point in the shootout, but they went on to lose 4-3 in penalties.
