In the group’s other match, Poland edged Japan 1-0 meaning Senegal and the Blue Samurai finished level on four points, however the latter became the first team in history to advance to the World Cup knockout stage on the fair play rule.

For the match-winning header that sent Colombia to the knockout stages, Yerry Mina was awarded the Man of the Match. It was his second goal of the campaign and he became the third defender at Russia 2018 to score two goals after John Stones and Andreas Granqvist.
