Who are the key players?

Robert Lewandowski was ineffective against Senegal but the Bayern Munich star is one of the best strikers in world football and will be even more determined to score his first World Cup goal against Colombia. Lewandowski is the all-time top scorer for Poland (55 goals in 96 games) and their leader too.

For Colombia, Lewandowski’s Bayern teammate James Rodriguez is without doubt their star man. The playmaker was outstanding at the last World Cup, winning the Goldon Boot and earning a move to Real Madrid, and is the man his country looks to for inspiration.

What is the team news?

Poland may bring forward Dawid Kownacki into their starting XI after an impressive cameo against Senegal, while influential centre-back Kamil Glik is fighting to return from a shoulder injury.
