Colombia: Fans silenced in Bogota as Colombia loses 2:1 to Japan

Macao, Special Administrative Region of China, Bogota
June 19, 2018 at 20:04 GMT -00:00 · Published

Thousands of football fans gathered on the streets of Bogota, Tuesday, to watch a public screening of the FIFA World Cup match, with Colombia losing to Japan 2:1 with a late goal by Yuya Osako.

Colombia started off bad, with defender Carlos Sanchez committing a penalty and earning a red card after three minutes of play. Things went from bad to worse when Japan's Shinji Kagawa managed to open the score from the white spot.

Colombian hopes were revived after Juan Quintero equalised the score with a superbly taken ground shot free kick, equalising from just outside Japan's penalty area, in the 39th minute.

In the 73rd minute, a Japan corner found Yuya Osako in the heart of Colombia's penalty box, who headed the ball in the back of the net, prompting a roar of disappointment by Colombian fans.

Colombia will next face Poland on June 24 whereas Japan will meet Senegal the same day.
