Colombia through to last 16 after bundling out Senegal

James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao- Colombia

Senegal, who had most of the better players in the first half, though they had a penalty when Sadio Mane went down in the area on 17 minutes.

Japan and Senegal head the group on four points each with Colombia one behind after rebounding with a 3-0 thumping of the now-eliminated Poland in Kazan on Sunday.

Colombia: Ospina (6), Arias (6), D Sanchez (7), Mina (8), Mojica (6), Uribe (6), C Sanchez (7), Cuadrado (5), Quintero (6), Rodriguez (5), Falcao (5).

Colombia defeated Senegal 1-0 to advance to the World Cup round of 16 as Group H winners in a result that sent the African side out of the competition on the fair play ranking.

Carlos Sanchez returned to the Colombia line-up after suspension.

Millions turn out to celebrate annual NYC Pride Parade
Burnaby's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community is set to have its first-ever pride celebration in the city. McArthur, a landscaper, was arrested in January and subsequently charged with eight counts of first-degree murder .

Senegal were pushed back in the early stages of the second half, but had the chance to go ahead when Mane lined up for a free-kick but he slipped heavily on the turf and eventually skewed wide. Victory would put either side through, but a draw would be good enough for Senegal and might even work for Colombia if the worst team at the tournament, Poland, can find some testicular fortitude and banjo Japan.

Sarr snatched at another chance on 80 minutes when his back-post volley lacked conviction, after he had been picked out by Mane's cross, and Senegal did not have another opportunity to rescue their tournament.

After his display in their last match against Poland, Colombian hopes had again been pinned on the shoulders of Rodríguez, who had spearheaded their run to the last quarterfinals four years ago.

Desperate late Senegal attacks failed to yield a goal that would have kept them alive and as Colombia legend Carlos Valderrama celebrated, Mane and his team-mates were stunned.

Colombia could also advance with a draw, but only if Japan lose. The Barcelona defender won seven aerial duels, made the same number of clearances and had a 91 per cent pass completion rate, too.
