Group H currently has Japan, level on points with Senegal, at the top on 4 points. Colombia, after comprehensively beating Poland 3-0 are in third place on 3 points while Poland sit bottom of the group having yet to win a point.

The most important objective for the nations still in contention of progressing to the next round will be to qualify but the final positions are just as vital. England's opponents are likely to be one of these two teams so close eyes will be kept on this fixture.

PREDICTION

This game is highly important for both sides which is why they are likely to go all out to try and win. Goals galore have been a prominent feature of this tournament and so this match will probably ended all square at 2-2.

 These predicted line-ups are exactly the same as the previous games because bar one or two changes, both managers should try to chop and change as little as possible given the positive performances of their sides. For Senegal, they need to continue the form which saw them score twice against Japan but obviously tighten up at the back. Colombia on the other hand simply need to play exactly as they did against Poland, scoring three times.
