Six minutes later, it was a done deal.

Senegal missed a glorious opportunity to become the first African country to the reach the round of 16 of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup by twice squandering a lead to play out a 2-2 draw with Japan.

We've nearly reached the final round of group games at the 2018 World Cup but in groups G and H, there's still plenty to be decided. He has 37 worldwide goals in his career. Winning first match of course means you start at the right pace. "Honda was moved from centre to the wide side and he was very versatile at adapting to that position".

Panama, though, proved against a powerful Belgian side that they won't be walkovers as they held Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard at bay in the first half, before conceding three goals in the second.

Senegal are not unduly anxious about taking on Japan in Sunday's Group H clash despite the Asians possessing plenty of technical quality across the pitch, the African team's coach Aliou Cisse said on Saturday.

The Group winners of Group H will face against the second-placed finishers of Group G and the winners of Group G will face against second-placed finishers of Group H. In both situations, Senegal will play their round of 16 matches against either Belgium or England depending on the position at which Senegal finishes within their group.

The resulting red card saw Japan go a goal ahead and gain a man advantage for 87 minutes.

But Japan didn't waste time to get back into it, scoring 20 minutes later off a fine finish from Takashi Inui.

He added that the Senegalese have some unique qualities, including including individual player' abilities, which the Samurai Blue should be cautious about. Japan had only two. "We had fun out there", said current tournament top scorer Kane, calling his third "one of the luckiest goals of my life".

While England looked dominant and some might say good during long portions of their win over Tunisia, it was still a victory that came in injury time.

"Perhaps we won't make as many mistakes as we did before, because we all know this is a match that will determine who will continue in the World Cup".

"We need to have more concentration and be more rigorous", Cisse said. "I think the simple fact of still being alive in the World Cup gives us the emotional drive for our two remaining matches". "It is not just Yoshida, but all the players - we are giving them information about Mane, though I am sure he will be in some duels with Mane", Nishino said.

"Senegal won due to discipline", coach Aliou Cisse, captain of the side which beat holders France in their first ever World Cup match in 2002, said.

Senegal will advance if they win and Colombia do not (25.3%).

"There will be certainly be changes, it is not very likely that we will play with Colombia with the same players", Malowiejski said. Colombia are favored to win though, there's a great case to be made that their opening round loss was owed a lot to playing with 10 men for basically the entire match.
