Colombia striker Carlo Bacca has been ruled out of his country's remaining World Cup group games with a leg strain.

The 27-year-old suffered the problem in training and will now miss fixtures against the Ivory Coast and Japan.

A statement on the Colombian Football Federation's website read: "Following the tests done by Colombia's medical team, led by Doctor Carlos Ulloa, it has been determined that player Carlos Bacca has suffered a first-degree muscle strain and will require a period of treatment from seven to 10 days."
