White will take the f7 pawn (Rf7), black will take the a4 pawn (Ra4). That position should be winning for black: black has 2 connected passed pawns and one of them will become a queen.

2 connected passed pawns often can bring you a new queen. It is even not simple for an opponent to sacrifice a piece for them. - 2 connected passed pawns on the 6th rank are stronger than a rook.
