Senegal vs. Colombia - Football Match Report

Colombia centre-backs Davinson Sanchez and Yerry Mina

Colombia's Yerry Mina thumped home a second-half header to secure a dramatic 1-0 victory over Senegal on Thursday that catapulted the South Americans into the World Cup last 16 and dumped their African opponents out of tournament.

After his display in their last match against Poland, Colombian hopes had again been pinned on the shoulders of Rodríguez, who had spearheaded their run to the last quarterfinals four years ago.

Colombia can jump ahead of Senegal with victory over the African nation.

Group G's top two England and Belgium await Colombia and Japan in the last 16, with Senegal unfortunate to be knocked out by the slimmest of margins.

Japan and Senegal were even on points, goal difference, goals scored, and they tied in their head-to-head meeting.

Colombia boost World Cup last-16 hopes by eliminating Poland
Poland and Colombia came into Sunday's game in the knowledge that Japan and Senegal had earlier drawn 2-2 in Ekaterinburg. Let's be frank, it's not like we lost by a whisker.

Upon learning of the goal in Volgograd, Colombia adopted a more defensive approach and were content to try to pinch a goal from a set piece, with Radamel Falcao squandering a decent chance on 66 minutes when he headed wide after running across his marker.

Senegal kept trying to get a goal that would have sent it to the next round, but Colombia defended well.

The first flashpoint came soon after when Sanchez stretched in the box to thwart Mane, referee Milorad Mazic pointing to the spot but then overturning the decision when replays revealed a fine recovery tackle.

Jan Bednarek's 59th minute goal was all that Poland needed to overcome Japan 1-0 in one of Group H. The referee originally gave Senegal the penalty kick, but the review went in Colombia's favour. It referenced the murder of Colombian defender Andres Escobar following an own-goal at the 1994 World Cup.

It's a tough blow for Senegal, who started the tournament well with a win against Poland.

Group H has featured some of the most surprising and exciting football of the 2018 World Cup thus far.
