Poland set to make changes for Colombia encounter

Colombia are favored to win though, there's a great case to be made that their opening round loss was owed a lot to playing with 10 men for basically the entire match. Coach Gareth Southgate has warned against getting too "comfortable".

All three games matter with two matches from group H to come but first the group G encounter between England and Panama.

There's another similarity between Iceland and Panama that should enter into England's preparation.

England's biggest-ever World Cup win, which included two penalties by Kane then a deflection off his heel, also guaranteed Belgium's berth in the next round.

"How many changes, and which positions, this decision has not been made yet". In this, Jordan Henderson was key.

Like them, Kane was expected to lead England's attack. Yet he has an able deputy in Henderson, a more vocal presence.

The 32-year-old Honda also scored at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups.

Coach: Aliou Cisse - Senegal will take a reminder of their dream World Cup debut in 2002 to Russian Federation next year.

It's ridiculously mean to pick holes in a dazzling England performance that involved six goals, qualification to the last 16 with a game to spare and a hat-trick for Harry Kane that put him top in the Golden Boot stakes.

Iran says doesn't think OPEC can reach deal
That means the country has little to gain from a deal to raise OPEC output, unlike top oil exporter Saudi Arabia. That crimped the country's ability to export crude, limiting supply and pushing up global prices.

Roman Torres missed a good chance just before Felipe Baloy's consolation strike.

The Three Lions have to score goals to keep pace with Belgium, who followed their 3-0 win over Panama with a 5-2 victory over Tunisia on Saturday night.

Things may not have gone as spectacularly for Rodriguez as he would have liked since that World Cup, but he's still Colombia's best player, its creative force and one of its main goal-scoring threats.

It's clear that England are a cohesive and able attacking unit, it's less clear whether that's true of their defence.

But, the brutal reality is that none of the five African countries who are in Russian Federation arrived there ranked among the top 20 nations, in the world, on the FIFA world rankings.

Japan and Senegal meet in the second match, each coming into the game on the back of a 2-1 win and co-leading Group H.

Sadio Mane got Senegal ahead in the 11th minute, profiting from a fortunate rebound off his leg after Eiji Kawashima in goal for Japan fumbled Youssouf Sabaly curler.

Senegal and Japan are no different.

Colombia will be eliminated if they lose and Japan do not win (21.5%).

Los Angeles Lakers acquire 39th overall pick in trade with Philadelphia 76ers
If Leonard wants to be a star, and get more exposure than he did in San Antonio , Philadelphia offers him that chance as well. Buford are looking to move forward with the less-than-ideal task of sorting out Leonard's future.

Japan is to play Senegal on Sunday and Poland on June 28. Senegal has been a blast to watch, showing off copious amounts of skill and terrific work by coach Aliou Cissé to have four points from two games.

Inui was once more his side's stand-out player.

"To submit myself to the kind of football Halilhodzic played in order to get picked, that would be shameful for me".

Colombia face Poland in Kazan on Sunday, when a second defeat for Jose Pekerman's technically-gifted side would spell national disaster.

James's inch-perfect, drinked cross found the head of defender Yerry Mina, who nodded in to give Colombia the lead five minutes before half-time.

- Only once before have Colombia lost both of their opening two games in a World Cup tournament, doing so against Romania and United States of America back in 1994.

It's the first World Cup since 2006 for Poland, whose fans are likely to travel to Russian Federation in large numbers.

The tournament couldn't have started much worse for Colombia. "You saw a Senegal team very solid, very compact".
