Colombia's national soccer squad had good time this Sunday at the expense of an unrecognizable Poland, which it thrashed 3-0 and kept alive its dreams of winning big in the 2018 World Cub in Russia.

Jose Pekermans team, led by a brilliant Juan Fernando Quintero, socred its first three points in the World Cup thanks to Yerry Mina who got his goal in the first hal,f and Radamel Falcao Garcia and Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, who got theirs in the second.

Pekerman's crew came into the game with no margin of error after its unexpected 2-1 setback against Japan last Tuesday, and if all hadn't gone well tonight in Kazan, their's would have been an almost certain lost cause.

But facing Colombia was a hesitant Poland, where Adam Nawalka chose to alter the initial plan after his team's 2-1 defeat by Senegal in its debut, scuttling the line of four behind and going for a 3-4-3 formation.

With this defeat, however, Poland bids Russia farewell.
