Colombia's James Rodriguez injured during Senegal World Cup game

Should Colombia be victorious, Japan will need to lose by fewer goals than Senegal to progress.

Japan and Senegal head the group on four points each with Colombia one behind after rebounding with a 3-0 thumping of the now-eliminated Poland in Kazan on Sunday.

With its game against Colombia looking destined for a draw and Poland beating Japan, Senegal was set to qualify for the last 16 as Group H victor.

The same goes for Colombia, which lost to Japan before throttling Poland.

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.

The two teams appeared well matched in the opening salvos but Colombia failed to create anything of note in the first half following Juan Quintero's free kick that was pushed around the post by Khadim N'Diaye.

Sanchez thwarted Senegal's star man again on 26 minutes after Mane had skilfully turned away from Mina.

Despite being second best for much of the first half, the South Americans got to the interval on level terms and that point was suddenly enough to send them through following Jan Bednarek's goal for Poland against Japan.

GOOOOOOOOOAL! Another #WorldCup goal for Yerry Mina!

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.

Mane slipped while taking a free-kick, yellow-shirted fans afforded further cheer as news from Volgograd came in, and Rodriguez, back pitchside, turned motivator as a Salif Sane slice proved a Senegal let-off.

"Colombia's style of play is similar to ours, very physical, moving forward quickly".

After years of struggling to progress to the latter stages, James Rodriguez's tournament-topping six goals steered Colombia to their best ever finish of the quarter-finals in Brazil four years ago.
