Colombia achieved their best World Cup performance in Brazil, beating Japan 4-1 on their way to the last eight with a swashbuckling brand of football that made them one of the most popular teams in the tournament.
Their star-studded team features the likes of James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado, while Japan still have Shinji Kagawa knocking around.
In the United States, the game is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on Fox Sports 1 (English broadcast) and Telemundo (Spanish broadcast).
"If Poland was the first match it would be different". Bayern Munich's Lewandowski ended the season as the Bundesliga's top scorer for the third time with 29 goals - 41 in all competitions.

As far this case, her publicist simply says the actress is on hiatus and has no information other than that about the situation. According to the Ventura County Sheriff's Departments, paramedics responded to Locklear's home at 3:50 PM on Sunday.
Poland has had an easy run through the qualification stage and they must be feeling highly confident going into this contest.
Having lost to hosts Brazil in the quarter-finals of the last World Cup, Pekerman refused to be drawn as to how far the Colombians aim to go in Russian Federation. Radamel Falcao, the captain, has the most worldwide goals for the team, followed by James Rodríguez, the vice-captain.
Rodriguez didn't have as much success following the World Cup. They are coming into this match on the back of an easy 2-0 victory over South Korea and have the likes of talented players Kalidou Koulibaly and Sadio Mane in their ranks to make the big difference.
In the previous three meetings between the two sides, Japan have failed to defeat Colombia as the former side lost twice while they settled with draws in the remaining game. This will be a first ever encounter between Russian Federation and seven-time African champions Egypt - both can have a few surprises for each other.
