Kagawa, Osako on target as Japan down Colombia

Colombia James Rodriguez 2018

Yuya Osako had a surprise in store for those who thought Shinji Okazaki's lack of fitness left Japan little hope of competing with Colombia at the World Cup.

Japan's forward Yuya Osako (C) celebrates with Japan's defender Yuto Nagatomo (L) and Japan's midfielder Makoto Hasebe after scoring a goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group H football match between Colombia and Japan at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk on June 19, 2018.

Sanchez became the first player to be sent off at the 2018 World Cup and, after a lengthy delay, Kagawa stayed calm to give Japan the lead from the spot.

At 35-years-old, the Metz shot-stopper had little to do in the match as Colombia only threatened his goal on three occasions, though it could be argued that Quintero's free-kick should have been kept out.

The result was bitterly disappointing for Colombia coach Jose Pekerman, with Robert Lewandowski-led Poland, then Senegal to come in Group H.

Trump's Former Campaign Manager Jailed
Kilimnik, who prosecutors say lives in Russian Federation , did not appear in court or respond to an email seeking comment Friday. Manafort is the first former member of Trump's presidential campaign to be jailed in connection with the Mueller investigation.

However, do not expect that stat to last too long as James Rodriguez picked up the Golden Boot four years ago, as well as clinching the goal of the tournament, and he even scored in every match Colombia played.

Colombia took on Japan in Tuesday's first game as both sides bid to get off to a strong start.

That's the second earliest red card in World Cup history, with Uruguay's Jose Batista still holding the record of 54 seconds from back in 1986.

Osako nodded Keisuke Honda's corner home in the 73rd minute at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk. Sanchez was given a red card in the third minute of the game as a result, and it was the right call by the head official.

While Carlos Sanchez took the fall, namesake Davinson was equally at fault as he allowed a ball over the top to bounce in the build-up to the penalty incident, giving Osaka a chance to shoot and Kagawa the opportunity to pounce on the follow-up.

The wait is almost over for Kingdom Hearts 3 , and Square Enix is keeping fans hyped with a new gameplay trailer. I wonder if they did the same for the other characters like Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, Gibbs, and Tia Dalma.

In Brazil he netted six goals as Los Cafeteros made a run to the quarter-finals, when the hosts eventually knocked them out.

But the game exploded into life after three minutes when the same player got clear down the middle and, when Ospina saved his strike, Kagawa's follow-up was blocked by the arm of Sanchez.

Colombia began the game without Rodriguez, a Bayern Munich midfielder who was the leading scorer at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Might wonder if he could have dealt with the corner for Japan's second goal, when he initially came off his line before retreating.

Wilmar Barrios 6 - Brought on in the first half to add solidity after Colombia went down to ten men, which he did.
