He scored his fifth goal to the delight of many in the rain-drenched crowd of 60,246 to take his total to five and leave him one shy of Russia's Oleg Salenko. So what did Voeller do?

As expected, German forward Rudi Voeller announced after the game that he was retiring from the team. A bit more surprising was the announcement from goalkeeper Bodo Illgner that he was also retiring. An angry German Coach Vogts expected Illgner to keep the news a secret for now. "He told me in the cabin (locker room) that he was retiring, but he was only going to tell me and not announce it," Vogts said. "Then I come out of the cabin and he has told the media.

Colombia, which has never been to the second round of the World Cup, got there Tuesday. Barely. Needing at least a tie against powerful West Germany, the Colombians seemed set through 87 scoreless minutes.

"I never doubted a possible comeback," Colombia Coach Francisco Maturana said.
