CUIABA, Brazil, June 24 (Reuters) - Colombia were drawing
1-1 with Japan at halftime after Juan Cuadrado's penalty was
cancelled out by Shinji Okazaki in their final World Cup Group C
game on Tuesday.
Japan equalised just before the break through Okazaki's
diving header after Colombia took the lead in the 17th minute
when Adrian Ramos was brought down and Cuadrado stepped up to
calmly drive the spot-kick past Eiji Kawashima.
Colombia need at least a draw to guarantee finishing top
while Japan must win to have any hope of making the last 16.
