World Cup: Januzaj defeats England

Adnan Januzaj’s stunner means Belgium top the group and will face Japan in the Round of 16, while England take on Colombia.

This was an extremely strange situation to be in, because both teams were qualified and not particularly eager to top the group, because they would then face Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Uruguay, Portugal, France and Argentina on their path to the Final. Runners-up, on the other hand, faced the prospect of Colombia, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Russia, Croatia and Denmark.

World Cup: Japan scrape through

Japan almost paid the price for resting players against Poland and only went through because Senegal had more yellow cards.

They finished level on points with the Africans and with the same goal difference, so it all came down to the Fair Play rules – Senegal had two more bookings, both earned by Torino striker M’Baye Niang.

Cuadrado to renew with Juventus?

Juventus are reportedly preparing to extend Juan Cuadrado’s contract, after Max Allegri made clear he considers the Colombian unsellable.

The winger missed large chunks of last season with a recurring groin problem, but appears to have bounced back after surgery and is impressing at the World Cup.

According to calciomercato.com, Arsenal were interested in signing the 30-year-old and made a new approach last week.

However, Juve Coach Allegri has made it clear to the board that he considers Cuadrado unsellable, so all offers have been rejected.

Falcao ‘honoured’ by Milan interest

Monaco and Colombia striker Radamel Falcao admits ‘it’s an honour that a club like Milan are following me.’

Speculation persists that Falcao could swap clubs with Andre Silva, although the chances of a deal hang in the balance, given Milan’s precarious financial position and that UEFA is likely to exclude the Rossoneri from next season’s Europa League.

World Cup: Honda stalls Senegal

It remains very tight in Group H, as Japan fought back twice to hold Senegal, including a late equaliser from ex-Milan star Keisuke Honda.

This was a surprising top of the table showdown, as Japan beat 10-man Colombia and Senegal swept Poland aside in their opener. There were several Serie A faces on show, from Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Torino striker Mbaye Niang to Inter full-back Yuto Nagatomo.

Senegal took the lead in bizarre fashion, as Eiji Kawashima punched a Youssouf Sabaly shot on to the knee of Sadio Mane and it ricocheted in from six yards.

WC Player Profile: Wojciech Szczesny

The goalkeeper pushed his way to the starting XI at Juventus and Poland after going from strength to strength, writes Anthony Barbagallo.

Wojciech Szczesny had fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal, but two years on loan at Roma allowed him to rediscover his confidence.

A surprise transfer to Juve followed and he has now replaced Gianluigi Buffon in the first choice gloves - at least for now, as Mattia Perin is eager to take the same path.

Asprilla tips Falcao for Milan

Radamel Falcao “would do great things” if he were to join Milan, said fellow Colombian striker Faustino Asprilla.

There have been multiple reports of interest in the Monaco centre-forward, who could arrive in an exchange with Andre Silva.

“Falcao is a hitman. Everyone he played, he scored goals,” Asprilla told Tuttomercatoweb.

“If he were to join Milan, he would do great things there too. He’s a great player and an icon of Colombian football.”

Guarin: 'Pay cut for Inter return'

Fredy Guarin “would be prepared to cut his salary for a return to Inter” from Shanghai Shenhua, said his agent.

The Colombia international midfielder was sold to the Chinese Super League club for €13m in January 2016.

“He renewed his contract for another two years, but not everything necessarily goes the way you expect. We’ll see what Inter will say and do,” agent Marcelo Ferreyra told Passione Inter.
