Colombia eliminates Poland

MOSCOW (AP) – Radamel Falcao’s first World Cup goal led Colombia to a 3-0 victory over Poland and kept the team in the running for a spot in the knockout round. Poland was eliminated.

Falcao’s goal was sandwiched by tallies by Yerry Mina and Juan Cuadrado between the 40th and 75th minutes.

Both teams lost Group H openers and knew another loss would end their hopes of advancing.

Also Sunday, Harry Kane scored a hat trick and England secured a place in the last 16 at the World Cup with a 6-1 rout of Panama. England goes into the Group G finale against Belgium level on points and with the same goal difference after conceding a late goal against Panama, which was eliminated after two matches in its World Cup debut.

Senegal and Japan drew 2-2 in Sunday’s other match.
