A fantastic header from Yerry Mina set Colombia on their way, the Barcelona defender rose highest in the box to meet James Rodriguez’s wonderful cross.

A tidy finish from Radamel Falcao and an explosive run and finish from Juan Cuadrado sealed the win for Colombia.

While the European side will be heading home early, Senegal and Japan are also on four points – level with the South Americans.

Colombia will face Senegal on June 28, with the winner of that game set to progress through to the last 16.

STAR MAN

The star of the last World Cup in Brazil, James Rodriguez showed just why Real Madrid were so desperate to sign him.

His performance tonight was superb, as he orchestrated so many attacks for his side.

Playing deep or cutting in from the right-hand side, he always looked to find teammates in space. Two gorgeous assists as well to help his side to victory.

The Colombian first goal was as good as any you are likely to see in this tournament.

A short corner by Rodriguez was sent out to Juan Quintero via Cuadrado. After getting the ball back via a lovely disguised pass, the Bayern Munich man sent it back in first time.

Beautifully weighted, it fell right on top of Yerry Mina’s head and the centre half was more than happy to power his effort home past Wojciech Szczęsny.
