Japan slip through to last 16 despite Poland loss

That was the difference between the last 16 and a flight home for Senegal after they crashed out of the World Cup at the hands of Colombia.

Kalidou Koulibaly is not letting talk regarding his future affect his preparations for Senegal's crucial Group H meeting against Colombia in Samara on Thursday.

Hi everyone, it's the final day of what has been an enthralling group stage - today we have the final pair of games with a couple of cracking Group H games kicking us off before Group G gives us a very unique situation.

Senegal came so close but in the end have been eliminated from the World Cup because they had received more yellow cards than Japan.

In a media conference on Wednesday, Koulibaly was asked how it felt to be regarded as a €100 million (£88m) player, and whether such transfer speculation was clouding his focus amid a World Cup campaign.

Relentless Japan hold Senegal; England into last 16 after Panama demolition
Normally when we do a post about a ball , puck , or occasional hot dog hitting a fan in the head, it's bad news for the fan. They did the same after Japan's victory over Colombia and Senegal's win over Poland on Tuesday.

With the two sides having drawn 2-2 in their group fixture, meaning their head-to-head record was also level, it then went to the next deciding parameter - fair play.

The fair play tiebreaker is based on the number of yellow and red cards a team has been given throughout the tournament.

Koulibaly will be in action for Senegal at 3pm tomorrow as they take on Colombia.

Colombia, now sitting in third in the group, needs a win to advance and will need another inspired performance from midfielder James Rodriguez.

While the fair play tiebreaker is far from flawless, it's likely better than what would have been the case had Senegal and Japan also been tied on yellow cards - the final remaining tiebreaker that Federation Internationale de Football Association has, in that case, is the drawing of lots.
