Bayern Munich pair James Rodriguez and Robert Lewandowski to meet when Colombia face Poland at the World Cup
Bayern Munich duo James Rodriguez and Robert Lewandowski will meet on Sunday, 24 June in Kazan when Colombia take on Poland at the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018.
Lewandowski took to Twitter once the draw was made, telling James that he remembers his “great goals during the last World Cup,” as the Colombian finished top scorer with six goals at Brazil 2014, before stating: “I hope you will remember mine from Russia.”
Colombia and Poland are in a group alongside Senegal and Japan, with Wolfsburg‘s Jakub Blaszczykowski and Borussia Dortmund‘s Lukasz Piszczek likely to feature for Adam Nawalka’s side, who were top seeds at the tournament.
Hannover defender Salif Sane represents Senegal, while Japan boast plenty of Bundesliga stars, including Shinji Kagawa (Dortmund), Makoto Hasebe (Eintracht Frankfurt), Genki Haraguchi (Hertha Berlin), Takuma Asano (Stuttgart), Yoshinori Muto (Mainz), Gotoku Sakai (Hamburg) and Yuya Osako (Cologne).
