Poland v Columbia: Players to watch out for

Here are the players to watch out for in today’s match

James Rodríguez: The 2014 World Cup saw the birth of a new star, who went on to win the golden boot. Four years later, Rodriguez still will be the star. The midfielder scored 7 goals and provided 11 assists for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga this season.

Dávinson Sánchez: Backed by an excellent season with Tottenham, Sanchez is one of the mainstays for the Columbia.

Robert Lewandowski: Lewandowski scored 16 of Poland’s 28 goals in the qualifying campaign. If he gets going, Poland will have a great chance to win.

Jakub Blaszczykowski: From a personal tragedy to a national hero, Blaszczykowski’s journey is an inspiration. The Wolfsburg’s midfielder has had a great season for the team and will be hoping to continue his great form here at Russia.
