Colombia vs Poland Preview: Colombia have become a very good side under manager José Pékerman who took over back in 2012 and helped Colombia to qualify back to back world cups after they missed out on previous three. Since he took charge he helped Colombia back in the reckoning on world stage. Colombia’s potential starting lineup is made of players from the top european clubs and that is always a good sign when assessing teams in world cups.
Japan on the other hand are not the team they use to be and lack the experience at this stage. Four years ago when these two meet in Brazil, Colombia hammered Japan 4-1 thanks to outstanding performance by James Rodriguez who will be key to Colombia’s chances again.
Colombia Upcoming Match Schedule: Colombia start their World Cup campaign with the opening game against Japan, they take on Poland and Senegal in the remaining two matches in a bid to qualify for knockout stages.
