Colombia thrills fans with 3-0 demolition of Poland

Goals from Yerry Mina, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado gave Colombia a convincing 3-0 win against Poland, who were eliminated from contention at the World Cup before their last Group H match. Japan and Senegal, who both picked up wins in their first games, drew 2-2 and are in a battle with Colombia to qualify for the knockout stage. Mina headed home from close range in the 40th minute when midfielder Juan Fernando Quintero caught the Poland defence off guard from a short corner with a smart clipped pass to James Rodriguez who whipped it in first time with his left foot.
Japan twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Senegal in their World Cup Group H encounter. Goals from Senegal captain Sadio Mane and Moussa Wague were matched by strikes from Takashi Inui and Keisuke Honda for the Samurai Blue. Senegal took the lead in the 11th minute when Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima punched a cross into Mane’s leg and the ball bounced back over the line and in, before Inui’s curled finish on 34 minutes meant the sides went in level at the break.
Harry Kane struck a hat-trick as England marched into the last 16 of the World Cup after with a record 6-1 win over a woeful Panama in their World Cup Group G match. The result, a record win for England in a World Cup finals match, means England qualify for the knockout stage with a game to spare, along with Belgium who also have six points. Tournament debutants Panama are eliminated along with Tunisia. England were 5-0 up at halftime after taking full advantage of a poor Panamanian defence.
