FIFA WC: Japan Beat Columbia In First Match


Web Desk(June 19, 2018): Japan wore down a Colombia team reduced to 10 men and won a frantic World Cup match, 2-1, on Tuesday in Saransk.

James Rodriguez, Colombia’s star, who is nursing a leg injury, came on in the second half but could not find a goal to save his team.Japan is in its sixth straight World Cup but has long been seen as a rider more than a driver. It has advanced to the round of 16 only twice — on home soil in 2002 and again in 2010 — but promptly went right out.

This victory, over a good Colombia team many thought could win the group, just put Poland and Senegal on notice.
