Radamel Falcao scored his first World Cup goal as Colombia got their competition in Russia up and running with a great triumph that finished a dull Poland side’s expectations of achieving the last 16.
Yerry Mina gestured in James Rodriguez’s cross in the blink of an eye before half-time to put the South Americans ahead.
Juan Quintero played a dazzling through ball to Falcao and he wrapped up in the 70th moment. That needed to have felt useful for the Colombian assailant after he missed the 2014 World cup because of damage.
Colombia have three focuses and play Senegal on Thursday knowing triumph could anchor top spot.
