What a cracker this is shaping up to be.

Senegal showed in flashes against Poland and Japan that they can be a good side. But they also showed vulnerabilities. They'll have to be at their very best here, knowing a draw might not be enough to get them through. A win might be their only result and they'll have to go for it.

Same goes for Colombia, who righted some wrongs from their opener by sweeping Poland aside with ease. They can't play for a draw, as a Japan win or draw sees them go out.

This should be a blood and thunder game between 2 quick and powerful teams. Just a shame it's a 3pm kick off!

Looks like Colombia's only chance is Senegal gassing late on. Senegal are very good.

Should be plenty of goals in this bad boy.
Doesn't look like it atm.

I am not impressed by this Colombia team. If they advance and England should play against them (I don't know exactly the schedule in the knockouts....we're out you know), Harry will kick the Dope out of them.

Every South American team out betters the chance for an European team to win the World Cup. (Although we already know that it's coming home)

I still haven't seen any evidence that Carlos Sanchez isn't absolutely awful.

Senegal made a sub right before the corner was taken, always dangerous

A bit puzzled by the commentators saying that Senegal deserved more. If you don’t create a chance or test the keeper, you don’t deserve anything. They were energetic and worked hard, but had nothing in the final third. Really naive from the coach to make a sub when defending a corner too, you never do that.

Deciding who finishes top and 2nd on fair play is one thing. But who stays in and exits? There has to be a better way.

Colombia just need to up it a bit, they could go far and would definitely beat Engerland if they were to face them, as they have savvy.
