Full Time Analysis
Japan took full advantage of being a man up by controlling the tempo of the game and letting Colombia chase them. Colombia got frustrated being unable to go on the attack and that could be seen by the yellow cards taken. Japan will be happy to get the three points and getting revenge on a team that beat them 4-1 in the 2014 World Cup. Colombia now look to bounce back when they take on Poland, while Japan will face Senegal on June 24th.

However, a 10 men Colombia responded very well, getting Juan Cuadrado and Juan Quintero loose on the wings but were unable to find the back of the net.

After a controversial foul decision given by Damir Skomina in the 38', Quintero beautifully snuck the ball under the wall and even the score 1-1. Japan will look to respond and take advantage of Colombia in the second half, while Colombia still have 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner James Rodriguez who can come in and instantly change the game.

Japan
The Samurai Blue are making their sixth straight World Cup appearance. The main question coming into this game is the mental mindset of the players after a recent earthquake hit Japan. Japan will look for captain Makoto Hasebe to rally the troops and make sure they are prepared for a tough match ahead.
0'
Colombia
The big news coming out of the Colombia camp has been the fitness levels of star forward James Rodriguez. Rodriguez had been struggling with a leg injury in the lead up to the World Cup, and will be on the bench today for the Colombians. This is good news for the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner and Colombia as well who look to have another strong World Cup appearance after getting knocked out in the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup.
