Why? Because both teams already do or that is in the second poulematch. Both Poland and Colombia golden advance as favourites for the group win, but went in the openingsmatch crashed against, respectively, Senegal and Japan. Tense nerves.

Perhaps both teams are very careful start – do not lose the first job, but as soon as one of both teams on the lead comes, we get undoubtedly a fascinating kijkstuk. We gamble so, on a mad day in this topmatch of group H. Also for the Belgians, this confrontation interesting to follow: one of the two teams could be the opponent in the eighth-finals.

Player to look out for? Grzegorz Krychowiak played for Poland a leading role in the openingsmatch against Senegal. He was the man that the unfortunate back-pass launched where Niang, just in the field came, benefited to the 2-0 to draw. In the final stage, put the Polish midfielder that blunder, however, right by the 2-1 any time within the headlines, but the aansluitingstreffer came too late. Also now wait Krychowiak is a major task: he must have vacuum cleaner for the defense to help the offensive compartment of Colombia – their strongest line – in to bridle.

If James Rodriguez will start, what is expected, will Krychowiak the South American playmaker to line plugging. A extrasportieve bonus: when the PSG to West Brom loaned player often appear, is also, the greater the chance that his graceful spouse Célia Jaunat attention of the cameras.

History? Poland and Colombia were never opposite each other in a world cup. The last confrontation dates back to 2006, when it was in a practice game 2-1 for Colombia. In total, they found each other five times, with three times the win for the South Americans. The motto for both teams in this confrontation is that there certainly should not be lost and, therefore, that a closed competition can be, but history teaches us that the chances are quite large that there are goals fall. In his last nine world cup matches did Poland no time to keep the zero and for Colombia, it is none of their last 19 world cup games scoreloos remained.
