SARANSK, Russia, June 19 (Reuters) - Ten-man Colombia and Japan were level at 1-1 at halftime in their World Cup Group H match on Tuesday.
Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez was sent off in the third minute for deliberate handball and Shinji Kagawa’s penalty put Japan 1-0 ahead. It was the second fastest red card in World Cup history.
Colombia equalised six minutes before the interval when Juan Quintero’s low free kick squeezed over the line.
