Poland started strongly, asking questions of the Colombian defence in the first ten minutes.

Radamel Falcao got his first World Cup goal in the 70th minute to double the lead for Colombia after pouncing on a through ball from Quintero, who was one of Colombia's best player throughout the game.

A Colombia victory over the Africans in their final first-round match in Samara on Thursday would secure a spot in the last 16 and keep them on target to at least match their charge to the quarter-finals in Brazil four years ago.

Colombia, for the part played 87 minutes in their opening match with 10 men after Carlos Sanchez was shown the second-fastest World Cup red card in history.

The result, coupled with Senegal's 2-2 draw with Japan, now means that all three teams including Colombia have a fair chance of qualifying from Group H.

"It's very important for us, for Colombia, but we have to continue in this way and fight until the end".

Rodriguez's two goals to down Los Charruas are already firmly etched into Colombian footballing folklore, but now Colombia needs Rodriguez to stand tall and produce some magic once again on Sunday in Kazan against Poland.

Desperate for the equaliser, Poland exposed themselves to counter-attacks whenever they ventured forward.

On loan from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich midfielder James Rodriguez was back in Colombia's starting XI after recovering from his calf injury. Centre-back Mina rose to the challenge as he climbed highest to power a header beyond a helpless Wojciech Szczesny in the Poland goal.

It evoked memories of the chilling murder of former Colombia player Andres Escobar, who was killed after his own goal led to defeat to the United States in the 1994 World Cup and Colombia's elimination from the tournament. He formed an excellent partnership with Quintero to create some lovely play for Colombia.

Five minutes later, Rodriguez produced arguably the assist of the night, drawing several Polish players on the left flank before somehow finding Cuadrado on the run with a superb cross-field pass that the pacey winger tucked away.

Poland played well for 15 minutes but then faded.

"Tonight practically we used all our forces that were available when it comes to our offensive playing", Poland coach Adam Nawalka told reporters.
