Colombia are facing a critical match against Senegal in Group H on Thursday, with a berth in the Round of 16 on the line.
After falling to Japan in their World Cup opener, Colombia bounced back with a convincing 3-0 victory over Poland in their second game.
Defender Yerry Mina believes the team still have to address their flaws if they want to overcome Senegal and advance in the tournament.
“I think all the squads are strong, anyone can beat you,” Mina said. We are working to fix our mistakes and make fewer of them when we are playing.”

Germany crashed out of the World Cup on Wednesday at the hands of South Korea, who scored twice in injury time to put the nail in the title holders’ coffin.
Joachim Low‘s men were on their way to elimination anyways with the score even entering injury time, but South Korea ensured it would be the case as Kim Young-Gwon’s strike held up after a VAR review and Son Heung-Min added the finishing touches.
Check out the two goals from the game in animation below.
Off a South Korea corner, the ball took multiple deflections before it found Kim wide open in front of goal. Though it was originally ruled offside, VAR found the deflection came off a German defender, which allowed the goal to stand.
With goalkeeper Manuel Neuer up the field an no one to man the net, South Korea took advantage as Ju Se-Jong boomed a kick from his own half that was just off the mark, only for Son to tap it home.
Serbia showed class in fits and spurts and that was not enough as Switzerland finished in second place at their expense.
Check out our Serbia ratings below:
Vladimir Stojkovic – There was a general air of panic when Brazil fired balls into the box and Stojkovic could have taken more control. 5
Antonio Rukavina – Surprise selection ahead of Ivanovic at right-back and did himself justice. Hardly shackled his flank but can hold head high. 6
Nikola Milenkovic – Fatally beaten to the ball by Silva for Brazil’s second. A black mark against a resilient performance in face of many attacks. 7
Milos Veljkovic – Could barely get near a canary yellow shirt all game, as evidenced by posting just one tackle and one interception on the stat sheet. 5
Aleksandar Kolarov – Was beaten by Willian on the by-line numerous times, luckily the Chelsea forward’s delivery was erratic. 5
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic – Much-hyped, but Lazio man didn’t pass his test against the best with flying colours. Better in second half. 6
Nemanja Matic – Slow to the boil then started to flummox Brazil with ice-cool passing before Silva killed off the mini-revival. 7
Dusan Tadic – Luis held him at bay when attacking down the right. A few pretty passes without the usual incisiveness. 6
Adem Ljajic – Found things clogged in the middle of the attacking third with Casemiro nipping at his heels. 5
Filip Kostic – A total of 16 passes all game, despite only been taken off in the 81st minute, sums his performance up. 4
Aleksandar Mitrovic – Combative style swatted away for the most part by Miranda and Silva. Tame header straight into Alisson’s hands. 5
Andrija Zivkovic – Looked better on the ball than Ljajic in the 20 minutes he was on, but nothing came to pass. 6
Nemanja Radonjic – Roma-owned winger injected a brief burst of energy and looks to have a promising future. 6
Luka Jovic – Game was long done and dusted before he came on to the pitch. N/A
