Colombia beat Senegal to top group and knock Africans out on fair play rule

Yerry Mina's second-half header sent Colombia into a last-16 tie with England at the World Cup at the expense of Senegal, who lost out to Japan having received more yellow cards. Senegal spent the final 20 minutes pushing for an equalizer which would have sent the African side through - AliouCisse's side were level with Japan in terms of points and goal difference, but crucially not yellow cards. The South Americans will face Group G runners-up England in Moscow on Tuesday, while Japan take on Belgium in Rostov-on-Don on Monday.
