Lewandowski's World Cup tweet to Rodriguez a year ago spectacularly backfires

Cedella Roman 19 was jogging on a Canadian beach when she'accidentally crossed over into the United States whereupon she was detained

Pekerman said he spoke for the whole squad when he dedicated Colombia's victory to the 32-year-old player.

Poland can not now catch either Japan or Senegal, who have four points from two games.

Desperate for the equaliser, Poland exposed themselves to counter-attacks whenever they ventured forward.

Rodriguez has reproduced the form he showed in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but Lewandowski has once again failed to show his best form for his country at a major tournament.

Colombia saw off the danger and doubled the lead after 70 minutes when Quintero's pass allowed Falcao to beat the last defender before stroking the ball past Szczesny with the outside of his boot.

Adam Nawalka's charges drifted worryingly heading towards the interval and Colombia made them pay on the 40-minute mark having caught the Eagles cold at a corner, much to the chagrin of their animated coach on the touchline.

Starting alongside Juan Quintero and Cuadrado on the right, Colombia's ultra-offensive starting line-up was a forewarning.

What Nigeria's win means for Lionel Messi and Argentina
Rohr brought on wing-back Tyronne Ebuehi for Bryan Idowu at the start of the second half and Nigeria came out full of running. Others said that Musa had actually served Messi's World Cup cause more than his Argentinian teammates.

Colombia have won only two of their nine previous World Cup games against Poland. Quintero came close in the 56th minute on the break, but his goal-bound shot took a deflection. The Bayern Munich player's six goals in the 13 qualifying games he started - a hard feat in CONMEBOL qualifying, especially with four of them coming away from home - highlight how vital he is.

Robert Lewandowski's Poland lost their second match in a row and are in danger of being eliminated in the group stage.

After two defensive lapses against Senegal led to a 2-1 defeat in their opener, the Poles looked second-best by miles all night against Colombia and talismanic striker Lewandowski summed it up with his nonchalant comments after the defeat to Los Cafeteros at the Kazan Arena.

Given his first start after fully recovering from a calf injury, Rodriguez lived up to expectations.

However, Poland have had serious issues while going forward ever since they landed in Russian Federation and Lewandowski, who averaged a goal every 56 minutes in qualifying, has not opened his account for the tournament after more than 180 minutes of playing time. Centre-back Mina rose to the challenge as he climbed highest to power a header beyond a helpless Wojciech Szczesny in the Poland goal. He formed an excellent partnership with Quintero to create some handsome play for Colombia.

Robert Lewandowski, making his World Cup debut in Russian Federation, struggled with a lack of service throughout, the Bayern Munich striker going closest in the final few minutes when a long-range effort was tipped over by David Ospina.
