Colombia dedicate crucial win to embattled Sanchez

FIFA World Cup 2018: FPJ's dream XI predictions for Poland and Colombia

Poland became the latest team to get knocked out of this year's FIFA World Cup after their 3-0 humbling at the hands of Colombia in the Group H encounter at the Kazan Arena.

The Juventus winger's trickery would eventually pay dividends, but it was Falcao - who has dreamed all his life of scoring a World Cup goal - who turned on the style, dancing through the Polish defence to win the corner that led to Colombia's opener.

Both sides knew defeat would spell the end of their World Cup hopes, but it was the South Americans who made all the running and deserved the lead given them in the 40th minute by Mina, who rose to head home a clever cross by Rodríguez.

Bayern Munich star James then found Juan Cuadrado late on, wrapping up a comfortable win for Colombia and leaving Nawalka with hard questions to answer.

Colombia can not afford to dwell on regrets from its loss to Japan in their World Cup opener when facing Poland in a crucial second Group H match, midfielder Abel Aguilar says.

Rodriguez's short corner eventually found Quintero, whose smart through ball back to Rodriguez gave him time and space to curl a ideal left-footed cross that Mina rose to header powerfully past Szczesny on 40 minutes. "But we treat Colombia as a whole team, even if they have such a great player".

Five minutes later, Juan Cuadrado netted the third goal for Los Cafeteros as he finished off another counter-attacking move with a cool finish. "We wanted to share this victory with him".

Poland's star striker Robert Lewandowski cut a frustrated figure up front due to a lack of service, as Adam Nawalka's charges were playing from deep in their own half.

Juan Quintero played a lovely through ball to Falcao and he did the rest in the 70th minute.

"They were seen as one of the favourite teams coming into the World Cup, so I'm expecting a very hard match, a very intense match". The lively Quintero threaded a defence-splitting pass to Falcao, who rolled back the years with a delightful low finish with the outside of his right boot.

There will be a weight of expectation on his shoulders when Colombia face Senegal in their final group game on Thursday.

James Rodriguez played in Falcao, who sprinted through on goal and then tried to set up Cuadrado with a clever backheel, but got his execution all wrong.

The Poles manufactured a chance against the run of play a few minutes later.
