  • Colombia's players attend a training session in Kazan on June 25 ahead of their Russia 2018 World Cup Group H match against Senegal

The South Americans are now third and need a win in Samara to guarantee a place in the last 16, while the African side are second and will progress with at least a draw.

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

Another key moment in the first half of the game was the exit of Colombia star man James Rodriguez who was taken out after picking up a knock.

Poland can't progress to the last-16 with the no 1 seed in the group having lost their first two games of the competition.

Colombia, who overcame the premature exit of injured James Rodriguez, will now play Group G's second-placed side - either England or Belgium - in Moscow on Tuesday, with Japan facing the winners of that group in Rostov-on-Don a day earlier.

On Thursday, as the group phase draws to a close, Senegal only need a draw to advance but victory for Colombia will put them into the next round instead, leaving Senegal eliminated if Japan avoid defeat against Poland in Volgograd at the same time.

Colombia boost World Cup last-16 hopes by eliminating Poland
The team was overwhelmed in midfield and looked clueless in attack in another error-ridden display that resulted in an early exit. Robert Lewandowski's Poland lost their second match in a row and are in danger of being eliminated in the group stage.

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

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

Colombia's football association has said the players who faced Poland focused on "regenerative" work on Monday.

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.

From their next corner, Barcelona defender Mina towered above the Senegalese defence and headed through N'Diaye for his second goal in as many matches.

Colombia settled for their one-goal lead and, despite growing increasingly desperate and frantic in the closing minutes, Senegal could not force in an equaliser to keep them in the World Cup, their fair play record giving them an unwanted piece of history.
