The Barcelona defender ensured his side’s progress with a towering second-half header from Juan Quintero’s corner.
Colombia had to win to be sure of their progress, but with Poland beating Japan 1-0 in Volgograd, African representation at the World Cup was ended as Senegal failed to secure the point they needed.
