World Cup fever took an unlikely turn Sunday as shepherds in the Colombian Andes staged a soccer game between two teams of sheep.

A crowd of 500 turned out as four-legged players dressed in the colors of the Colombian national team edged out a team representing Brazil by four goals to three, according to a match report from The Associated Press.
