Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as Senegal meets Colombia in the World Cup group stage.

Two of the most entertaining sides battle for what could be just one place in the World Cup knockout stage when Senegal and Colombia meet in a Group H finale on Thursday.

The two sides trail Japan and enter the match knowing that if there’s a winner, it will be through. Should Japan fall to Poland, then a draw would be enough to send both sides through. A Senegal loss that is by fewer goals than a Japan loss would also send the Lions of Teranga to the knockout stage for the first time in 16 years.

Senegal missed an opportuity to win a second straight match when it conceded late to Japan following an impressive opening victory over Poland. Colombia, meanwhile, fell to Japan after Carlos Sanchez’s third-minute red card, but it bounced back with a dynamic win over Poland, one that evoked memories of its 2014 World Cup run to the quarterfinals.

Stay tuned here for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays from throughout the match (refresh here for most recent updates).
