Colombia players dance in celebration after James Rodriguez's opening goal in the 2-1 win over the Ivory Coast on Thursday.

The country that brought you the Pablo Armero-led group celebration is back with the sequel.

Colombia turned in its second entertaining team goal dance of the World Cup after James Rodriguez broke a 0-0 deadlock against Ivory Coast on Thursday. Rodriguez powered home a header off a corner kick before taking off for his sidelines, much like Armero did after opening the scoring against Greece on Saturday. Playing in the nation of Samba, Colombia's players showed off their moves, and with a 2-1 win over Ivory Coast, they're looking golden for the knockout stage.

As for that player jumping on Rodriguez at the end? None other than 42-year-old former Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon. Dance on, Colombia:
