In 1990s, Carlos Valderrama played a major role during the golden era of Colombian football. Besides his wonderful passing and dribbling ability on the ground, he was also very much appreciated for his blondish orange Afro. His hairdo was idolized by many during the 1990 FIFA World Cup. The hype was increased when he made a crucial pass to his teammate Freddy Rincon to equalize in the last minute of a group stage match against Germany, which saved his national team into the next round. This hairstyle is also featured in his 22 feet bronze statue in his birthplace Santa Marta created by Colombian artist AmilkarAriza in 2006. He may not have won the World Cup for Colombia but has stayed in the heart of many fans even today.
