In the final round of matches for Group H, Senegal and Colombia will play for a guaranteed spot in the round of 16. Despite Colombia boasting key players like James Rodriguez and a staggering 3-0 win against Poland last Sunday, midfielder Abel Aguilar will not play on Thursday because of a left adductor injury he garnered during the match. But Colombia coach Jose Pekerman said not to rule out Aguilar for the rest of the tournament should Colombia advance to the knockout stage.
Although Senegal scored a 2-2 draw with Japan on Sunday, achieving another draw against Colombia will be enough to move forward if Japan lose to Poland. Senegal also made waves this week when the team’s warm-up dance went viral.
Best practice ever!
