"A total of 20,000 Colombian fans are coming to Samara for the match against Senegal," the press service said.
According to the press service's statement, around 11,000 Colombians will be coming by air and 6,500 more will arrive by train, and the rest are coming by bus. About 250 Senegalese fans are also expected to attend the teams' final group-stage game.
Colombia have three points and currently sit third in Group H behind Senegal and Japan, who both have four points. They can still reach the round of 16, but will most likely have to beat Senegal.
