As James Rodriguez traipsed off the field with only 30 minutes played, it seemed that Colombia's World Cup dreams had departed with the totemic midfielder.Mina's late winner shuffled the standings in Group H, with Colombia moving to the top while Senegal became the first team to fall victim to FIFA's newly imposed, and quite honestly, scandalous fair play rules.A daisy cutter from a Juan Fernando Quintero's minute free kick was as good as it good for Colombia, while a Senegal penalty was overturned after replays showed that Davinson Sanchez had taken possession of the ball when tackling Sadio Mane.That was the best Senegal could muster as Colombia survived to scrape into the tournament's knockout phase while Aliou Cisse's men unwittingly ushered in FIFA's incipient fair play system.
