"I was alone, we fought, I fought, I did everything I could, but fighting is not enough to win World Cup matches, you also have to have quality and we had too little of that".

Poland's hopes for play in the knockout round of the football World Cup in Russian Federation are over after being thrashed 0-3 by Colombia in the group stage on Sunday.

The victory kept Colombia in the running for a spot in the round of 16 and knocked out Poland, the first European country to be eliminated.

Poland struggled to cope with Colombia's midfield threats, with Juan Quintero starring alongside Cuadrado and Rodriguez.

In a match destined to see the loser sent home after the group stages, Colombia overcame a nervous start against Adam Nawalka's men to move up to third place in Group H, one point behind Japan and Senegal.

The South Americans, though, doubled their lead 10 minutes later when Radamel Falcao showed great strength to win the ball on the edge of the box before firing into the corner of the net, 2-0.


"We were playing under the pressure of having to win and there could be no mistakes", said Colombia coach Jose Pekerman.

There will be a weight of expectation on his shoulders when Colombia face Senegal in their final group game on Thursday.

And speaking prior to England's contest with Panama, Southgate labelled Loftus-Cheek a "very good ball player" despite his strong physical appearance. Juan Fernando Quintero's inch-perfect pass played in the striker, who steered a low shot past Wojciech Szczesny with the outside of his right foot.

Given his first start after fully recovering from a calf injury, Rodriguez lived up to expectations.

Poland threatened again, but when Lewandowski got his head to a cross into the area he was marked by both Mina and Davinson Sanchez.

Poland continued to push forward and five minutes later they were caught on the break when Rodriguez rasped a pass across the field to set Cuadrado free on goal and allow the winger to claim fitting reward for a fine performance with a cool finish.
