Colombia and Japan begin Group H play on Tuesday, as they meet inside Mordovia Arena in Saransk.

Russian Federation who emphatically won their opening game 5-0 against Asian side Saudi Arabia will be hoping that they can win this game and qualify for the round of 16 in what would be a dream start to their World Cup campaign.

Their star-studded team features the likes of James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado, while Japan still have Shinji Kagawa knocking around. We need to reach the quarter-finals and then do even better. Jacqui Hurley presents, with analysis from Eamon Dunphy, Richard Dunne and Michael O'Neill, and commentary by Adrian Eames and Jim Beglin.

Colombia played some thrilling football in the 2014 World Cup, and they will hope they can do the same this time around.

Colombia v Japan (Kick-off 1.00pm).

The Samurai Blue will not be changing the way they set up if the playmaker is indeed ruled out.

The games start with the last of the Asian teams to get their World Cup under way.

Poland and Senegal will then be the last sides to open their campaigns at 3am, before Russian Federation and Egypt square off in the first match of round two at 6am.

"A successful World Cup for us would be surpassing what we achieved in Brazil".

"We have enough alternatives and players who can give options to the team".

"If Poland was the first match it would be different". Radamel Falcao, the captain, has the most global goals for the team, followed by James Rodríguez, the vice-captain. The major talking point of this duel is fully-fit Egypt forward Mohamed Salah who didn't play during his team's 0-1 loss against Uruguay in the opening match.

The entire continent of Africa will also be rooting for Senegal to deliver the first positive result for an African team at this year's World Cup.

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.
