Yerry Mina Goal Sends Colombia Past Senegal, into World Cup Knockout Stage

Japan like Senegal also need a draw against Poland to advance to the next round but the Blue Samurais are not settling for less.

However, after consultation with the Video Assistant Referee, Serbian referee Milorad Mazic overturned his own decision and signaled only a drop ball.

Both sides were intermittently impressive against a terrible Poland but Japan did a number on 10-man Colombia to avenge their trouncing in the group stage four years ago.

Colombia secure their passage to the last 16 of the World Cup with a 1-0 victory over Senegal, who miss out on qualification to Japan on the fair-play rule.

Colombia will face the runners-up of Group G, either England or Belgium, who face off later on Thursday and whose ranking will also be decided via fair play should they draw.

Colombia were struggling to gain a foothold and they were dealt a blow after half an hour.

Mina rose highest in the box to power home his header pass Ndiaye in goal for Senegal.

The Samara Arena was then sent into a frenzy when Yerry Mina headed Colombia ahead from a corner on 74 minutes.

Senegal knew they were heading out and responded well to Mina's goal, Ismaila Sarr missing a fine chance after being picked out by Mane.
