Saving the best for the last, Poland will take on Colombia in the battle of potential Group H toppers at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on 24th June at the Kazan Arena. Friends at Bayern Munich, James Rodrigues, and Robert Lewandowski will be foes at the Kazan Arena trying to take their country to the knockout stages. The winner of this game will most probably end up as the topper of Group H as Japan and Senegal have least chances of fairing better than these two sides. It will be a lot more than just Rodriguez against Lewandowski. Both sides have got too many big names capable of destroying their opponents.
Let’s first look at the two teams that will compete in this all-important Group H match. Poland and Colombia are not separated by much as far as their world rankings are concerned, but, Poland has been on an upsurge in the recent years and their captain Robert Lewandowski is fondly called hat-trick machine. He slammed a record 16 goals in the world cup qualifying tournament to get his team the ticket to Russia. He would certainly be eyeing to chip in with some fantastic results to cap this resurgent era of Poland as a football team.
Their rival, Colombia is by no means an inferior football team and their best World cup performance was in the previous edition of the tournament when they controversially lost in the quarterfinals to the hosts Brazil. Sadly, the team from South America carries with itself the terrible reputation of coming from a country of gun-runners, drug and mafia lords. We hope they are able to do well in this tournament and earn some footballing respect for their crime affected country.
For the fans it will be one pleasing watch as the end to end football will likely be on offer as both Poland and Colombia will unleash their attacking prowess to gain the upper hand.
