South American side, Colombia keeping their hope of advancing into the knock out stage of World Cup alive and well after grabbing a comfortable 3-0 win over Poland.
Losing their opening fixture against Japan, Los Cafeteros acknowledge the need for them to bag all three points in keeping their stay in the tournament.
That situation triggered them to set on an aggressive attacking setup straight from kick off, something that Poland also did, since they are also in the same situation as Colombia.
Both teams were trying hard to break down each others’ defense in the first 30 minutes, without much success, until Jose Pekerman’s team finally found a way through on 40 minutes from Yeri Mina’s header.
That opening goal practically shifted the match into Colombia’s favor as they started to dominate proceedings heavily from that moment on.
After the break, Le Cafeteros continue to look more dangerous as they finally doubled their advantage on 70 minutes from Radamel Falcao’s lovely finish, before Juan Cuadraro basically sealed all three points five minutes later.
No more goals were scored afterwards as Colombia comfortably see off their 3-0 victory until the final whistle was blown.
That win pretty much revived Colombia shot in advancing into the knock out round, though they now must win their final game against Senegal to reach their ambition.
As for Poland that defeat means that they are practically out of the tournament and will only have nothing but pride to play for on their final group game against Japan.
