Eeny, meeny, miny, moe – Mina’s header responding to the Quintero’s corner with a first place VISA to the knockout stage.
Senegal with more shots on goal and Colombia with higher percentage of ball possession, nobody willing to give away the match where both nations behaving with the utmost respect.
Possession with purpose has not been so far the path, because nerves are at peak on both sides with Senegal never having lost a group stage match in the history of the World Cups while Colombia fighting to advance, as it is, only a Polish triumph over Japan would shift the calculations of the Group H.
That is the same group where at least 3 Nations would actually deserve to get through based on their overall performance on these flawless fields in Russia.
We can see both nations wasting constantly ball possession, but so far regardless of it and with very few real shots on goal, it has been an entertaining match. Sadio Mane looking very exhausted while James Rodriguez not fully recovered from the injured that haunted him before the World Cup and has been substituted by Muriel with 30 minutes on the clock.
- First Half ends with Japan with 5 points, just ahead of Senegal with 4 points and Colombia relegated to the Airport. Will Poland scrap the Samurai’s intents and rewrite the VISA’s extension on the South American’s passport?

Now and as it stands with 10 minutes to go, Colombia 1st, Japan 2nd even when they are losing against Poland and Senegal heading back to Africa unfortunately…they have been inspiring playing under the color of HOPE, GREEN!!!
The most entertaining group that started with Japan on top, then had Senegal throughout the match and now with 5 minutes to go, Colombia tops the group. The first group heavily dominated by non-European nations and actually, from different continents, Asia, Africa, America. CULTURAL HERITAGE & DIVERSITY!!
4 Yellow cards for Japan and 6 yellow cards to Senegal – Meaning, that under the fair-play tie break, AFRICA has sealed their destiny and will continue to display their outstanding great inviting continent filled with the special stories, history and heritage. Friendship & Love - WELCOME TO AFRICA!!
