Colombia cruise past Poland to keep World Cup hopes alive

Harry Kane and England scored early and often, Japan cancelled out Sadio Mane and Senegal and James Rodriguez added to his impressive World Cup resume.

Goals from Yerry Mina, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado gave Colombia a convincing 3-0 win on June 24 against Poland, who were eliminated from contention at the World Cup before their last Group H match.

It was a goal worth watching over and over and over again, and took James' tally to six goals and four assists in just seven World Cup appearances.

The South Americans go into the final game knowing a win against Senegal will book them a place in the last 16.

Melania Trump Sets Off To Visit Detained Kids Wearing Bizarre Coat
The president's statement seemed at odds with a statement Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, gave earlier in the day. United States first lady Melania Trump walks to her motorcade wearing a Zara design jacket with the phrase "I Really Don't Care".

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 will next face Senegal on Thursday in Samara with a chance to win the group, while Poland will play Japan in Volgograd.

Both teams lost Group H openers and knew another loss would end their hopes of advancing.

Colombia saw off the danger and doubled the lead after 70 minutes when Quintero's pass allowed Falcao to beat the last defender before stroking the ball past Szczesny with the outside of his boot.

The way they opened up the Polish defence for the killer second goal was fantastic, Quintero accepting a low ball from the right side with the softest of touches before delivering a ideal pass for Falcao to slip beyond Wojciech Szczesny with the outside of his boot.

Trump immigration order may not prevent some family separations
She also ruled that the announced decree would replace one crisis with another: "Children have no place in prison", she said. However, at the 20-day mark, under the Flores consent decree, the department will have to release the children from custody.

Given his first start after fully recovering from a calf injury, Rodriguez lived up to expectations.

Besides scoring, Mina was also excellent in containing Lewandowski throughout the match. The team was overwhelmed in midfield and looked clueless in attack in another error-ridden display that resulted in an early exit.

"Colombia are an excellent team with an excellent coach".

With James dominating, they had the holders hanging on by their fingernails in the quarter-finals of the last World Cup in Brazil, and there is no reason for them not to emulate that return on this evidence.

Crude Oil Prices to Decline to $68 a Barrel in 2019
The final decision needs to be unanimous for OPEC, however, and many analysts expect the meeting to be a disaster. US President Donald Trump last week pushed ahead with tariffs on billion of Chinese imports, starting on July 6.
