Colombia earned their first points of the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a comfortable win against Poland in Kazan.

After losing to Japan in their opening game, the South American side seemingly were out to prove that they a still a force to be reckoned with this summer and opened the scoring when Yerry Mina headed in from a fine James Rodríguez cross in the 40th minute.

Rodríguez was the star man throughout the game and was the man making things happen for Colombia. They doubled their lead in the 70th minute when Juan Quintero’s through ball was met by Radamel Falcao who finished superbly into the bottom corner of the goal.

Poland have never really got going in Russia and they’re fate was sealed five minutes later when former Chelsea player Juan Cuadrado made the most of Rodriguez’s fine pass and curled the ball into the right corner of the net beating Wojciech Szczesny and sending Poland out of the tournament.

After the second round of fixtures, Colombia trail leaders Japan and Senegal, who are both on four points, in third. Matchday three sees Colombia face Senegal at the Samara Arena while Japan face already eliminated Poland in Volgograd.]

The outcome to Group H is particularly interesting for England fans, as the winners of Group G, either England or Belgium will face the runners up in this group, while second in Group G will face the winners here.
