Colombia were looking to recreate the energy that saw them decisively beat Poland but a combination of tight defence and quick attack saw Senegal dominate the first half.

A further blow came for Colombia in the 30th minute when a devastated James Rodriguez was subbed off and the teams headed to the break level.  

The second half got off to a slow start but quick transitions saw both teams create chances as the game liven up.

Yerry Mina used every bit of his height to bury a header and put his team in front in the 74th minute.

Despite desperate attacks from Senegal, this goal would prove the difference and end their World Cup campaign.


David Ospina- 8

Was only really tested twice but did all of the little things right to finish the game with a clean sheet.

Santiago Arias- 7

Timed his runs forward well and got the basics right at crucial times with clean touches and passes.

Davinson Sánchez- 7.5

Close defending shut down the Senegalese attack but he came dangerously close to giving away a penalty early on in the game.

Yerry Mina- 9

Took calculated risks, feinting and cutting in front of attackers to create enough room to play the ball in any direction. He stepped up when it counted with a header to put his side ahead.   

Mateus Uribe- 7

May not have provided anything for the highlight reel but was always where his team needed him to be in the centre of the park.
