KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Radamel Falcao scored his first World Cup goal as Colombia got their tournament in Russian Federation up and running with an impressive 3-0 victory that ended a lacklustre Poland side's hopes of reaching the last 16.

Poland have been eliminated from the World Cup, beaten 3-0 by Colombia in Kazan.

In an echo of the murder of Colombian defender Andres Escobar in the wake of his own goal at the 1994 World Cup, police in the South American country are investigating death threats made against Sanchez.

Yerry Mina scored in the 40th and Juan Cuadrado completed the win in the 75th.

Colombia can not afford to dwell on regrets from its loss to Japan in their World Cup opener when facing Poland in a crucial second Group H match, midfielder Abel Aguilar says.

Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 earlier Sunday and lead the group with four points each.

Cuadrado teased and frustrated the Polish defence in a positive start to the second half, and after Colombia 'keeper David Ospina bravely denied Robert Lewandowski when he latched on to a unsafe long ball, Colombia turned up the heat.

Adam Nawalka's men were hoping to build on that chance but they got caught out with a swift counter in 70th minute.

Half-time---Sweden-0-South-Korea-0
South Korea are ranked No.57 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings while Sweden sit at No.24. Sweden then got the breakthrough their positive approach deserved after Kim's clumsy challenge on Claesson.

"Our players played their best until the end of the game, but we lost to a very strong team and we must accept that".

At club level, a move to Real Madrid after winning the Golden Boot at the 2014 World Cup seemed to herald the coming of a genuine superstar, perhaps even the leader of the group of players in the category behind the untouchables, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Rodriguez bagged two assists on Sunday night but his pass to find Cuadrado for the third goal was truly a piece of artistry. Cuadrado collected the pass and rushed toward the box, timing his shot perfectly to beat goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

While Poland next game against Japan will be to save their pride, only a win would propel Colombia into the knockout stages.

Any hopes Poland has of getting out of its group after an opening-day defeat surely rest on the Bayern Munich striker, but he will need to be much better than he was against Senegal when he had very little impact.

Poland has now failed to keep a clean sheet in its last 10 World Cup matches, since beating Portugal 1-0 in 1986.

Poland played well for 15 minutes but then faded.
