On a Friday morning in West Palm Beach, World Cup fans clad in sky blue took over the Argentine restaurant Al Pan Pan. South Floridians representing a host of different Latin American countries collectively cheered for their neighbor Uruguay in its match against France.
Members of the crowd screamed, cried, and bit their nails during the quick 95-minute game.
Among the folds of Uruguayan flags stood patron Juan Iglesias, who is Cuban.
"Whoever's in that is a Latin country, you know I root for that," Iglesias said.
