Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez have both been named in the Colombia XI for Thursday's key 2018 World Cup clash with Senegal.

A win for either of these countries would book their spot in the last-16 stage of the competition, although it is Japan that currently top Group H entering the final round of fixtures.

Carlos Sanchez is back from a suspension to start for Colombia this afternoon, but Falcao, Rodriguez and Juan Quintero all keep their spots in attacking positions.

As for Senegal, Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly will again lead the back four, while Everton's Idrissa Gueye and Liverpool's Sadio Mane are also in the team.

Keita Balde Diao is also handed a spot in the Senegal XI, with Mame Biram Diouf again on the bench.

Subs: Diallo, Diouf, Gomis, Kara, Konate, Mbengue, Ndiaye, A N'Diaye, N'Doye, Sakho, Sow, Wague

Colombia: Ospina; Arias, D Sanchez, Mina, Mojica; Uribe, C Sanchez; Cuadrado, Quintero, Rodriguez; Falcao
