HOUSTON, TX - NRG Stadium hosted it's first of three Copa America Centenario matches on Saturday night as Colombia took on Costa Rica.

Copa America is the soccer championship of South America.  It often features teams from North and Central America, as well as the Caribbean.

Victor Turca lives in Houston, but is originally from Colombia.  The match allowed him to share a special moment with his 9-year-old daughter, Maia.

"I brought her here to her first soccer game," Turca said. "She can see what the traditions and what the heart of a champion is."

Mexico will take on Venezuela Monday night at NRG Stadium, and then a semi-final match will be played in Houston on June 21.
