Senegal vs Colombia Preview:

This is going to be a do or die match for the Colombians as they are the third team in the group according to the points table and even drawing this game would end their world cup dream. They would not want that because they showed great football in their last game against Poland and thrashed them by a score of 3-0. They are most likely to use the same tactics in this game as well and Senegal has not been very organized in defending, chances are higher that the Colombians would score. For Senegal, they would want to maintain their attack as priority one because they have been successful in finding the net in both of their games and their biggest concern would be their defense in this game. They drew with Japan, which they should have won but their weak defending could also prove to be fatal in this game.
