James Rodriguez Won't Start Colombia vs

James Rodriguez scores against Japan in 2014 James Rodriguez scored twice as Colombia beat Japan 4-1 at the 2014 World Cup

Sánchez blocked a goal-bound shot from Shinji Kagawa, giving the referee no option but to send him off, though the Colombian took a long time to leave.

Shinji Kagawa scored the resulting penalty to put Japan 1-0 up in the sixth minute, but Juan Quintero equalised with a low free kick which squeezed over the line shortly before halftime. They got a deserved equalizer in the 39th minute through Juan Quintero, who slid his free-kick under the wall, where it beat Eiji Kawashima at his near post.

Colombia's Carlos Sanchez was red carded after two minutes and 56 seconds - the second fastest shown in World Cup history, after Jose Alberto Batista for Uruguay vs Scotland in 1986 (54 seconds).

But it was apparent within minutes that the rematch would not go so smoothly for Colombia, much to the chagrin of entire sections of the Mordovia Arena bathed in yellow.

James Rodriguez will not play for Colombia in their World Cup opener against Japan in Saransk, Russia on Tuesday after injuring his left calf in training.

James Rodriguez was forced to make do with a place on the substitutes' bench after suffering from muscle fatigue but Jose Izquierdo was handed a surprise start.

Japan will try to claim revenge for their 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Colombia, who reached the quarter-finals, in their final group game at the 2014 World Cup finals.

After the dismissal, Colombia poured forward and their captain Radamel Falcao twice went close.

It's impossible to forget Colombia forward James Rodriguez's fantastic run in the 2014 World Cup. The Asian side limped into the World Cup, losing friendlies to Ukraine, Ghana and Switzerland before topping Paraguay in the final tune-up.

This is the first World Cup tournament in which as many as four South American teams have failed to win their opening game since 1974.

Japan continue their quest for qualification from Group H when they travel to the Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg to face Senegal on Sunday (4pm BST kick-off).
