Where: Mordovia Arena, Saransk
Colombia were the quarter-finalist of the last edition, and notably, James Rodriguez was the breakthrough star for them as he netted six goals and was awarded the golden boot. This team played exceptionally well in the last edition, and the same can be expected from them this time around. However, James Rodrigues and Wilmar Barrios are doubtful to take the pitch in this match as they are struggling with muscle fatigue.
As far as the Blue Samurai, Japan is concerned, this is going to be their 6th appearance in the mega event and they are yet to cross the last 16 barriers being jolted twice in that situation, and the latest one was at the 2010 edition in South Africa.
