I was in Kitintale and saw a man wearing the shirt of one of the most important football teams in my city, Colombia. I asked him and he had no idea what Los del Sur was; But he happily told me that he bought the shirt in Rwanda. From Kampala, very kindly, let's go green.” The words the woman wrote were in English.

The reactions to Stefania's tweet were immediate. It was mentioned by many Green fans when a resident was seen at some demonstrations in Burkina Faso, another African country, wearing a King of Cups jersey, or when the team flag with the team shield appeared in front of the camera in the World Cup final. There is no doubt that, although it may seem conservative, Atletico Nacional are known around the world.
