GROUP H: Poland, Colombia, Senegal, Japan

1. Poland

With Robert Lewandowski firing to the greatest extent, Poland eased their way into the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Coach Adam Nawalka has a good load of options when it comes to trying out the various combinations on the field. Star of the nation Lewandowski has a huge responsibility of taking his nation to the round of 16. Piotr Zielinski is also a decent player to watch out for.

Famous Hubs in Poland:

Rynek Underground
The Chapel of Skulls
Crooked Forest
Wawel Dragon’s Den
The Wolf’s Lair

2. Colombia

José Pékerman’s side, Colombia – qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup after dramatic turnarounds in the last round of qualifiers. Attacking midfielder James Rodríguez has already captured the eyes of many with his stint in the 2014 world cup. Radamel Falcao, who was down with a severe injury in the previous world cup has a lot to prove this time. Defenders Yerry Mina, Stefan Medina, Davinson Sanchez on their best day, can form walls to not let air pass through their defence let alone a goal.

Famous Hubs in Colombia:

Caño Cristales
Tequendama Falls Museum
Las Lajas Sanctuary
Cave of Splendor
The Volcan de Lodo El Totumo

3. Senegal

After a controversial rematch against South Africa, after which- Joseph Lamptey, the match referee was barred for life – Senegal reserved their spot in the FIFA 2018 World Cup. The game changers are large in number with the likes of Idrissa Gueye and Cheikhou Kouyate in mid, Kalidou Koulibaly strengthening the defence and Sadio Mané and Keita Balde in the attacking role. Keita Balde also has the potential to be one of the best stars for Senegal. A qualification to the round of 16 is very much attainable given the squad’s firing forces.

Famous Hubs in Senegal:

Lake Retba
The Great Green Wall of Africa
House Of Slaves
African Renaissance Monument
Fadiouth Shell Island


4. Japan

Japan sealing their seat at the 2018 FIFA World Cup didn’t come out as a surprise given their comfortable wins in the qualifiers. There were speculations for heavy drama after Vahid Halilhodzic was dropped right after the qualification was done. This didn’t distract the nation on the whole though. The Japanese side needs to up their game if they want to pose a healthy competition in the group stages. Shinji Kagawa, who plays for Dortmund has the potential to surprise the opponents with his skillset.

Famous Hubs in Japan:

Cat Island
Ghibli Museum
Wisteria Tunnel
Sagano Bamboo Forest
Anata No Warehouse
