Relentless Japan hold Senegal; England into last 16 after Panama demolition

  • Senegal Japan underdogs aiming for a round of 16 spot

No matter. With Japan and Senegal atop Group H with four points apiece and Colombia now sitting just behind on three, there's an terrible lot left to play for.

The fierce shot was too hot for Eiji Kawashima who punched it to Mane who from close range was at the right place and the right time to allow his body to do the work without the application of any more effort.

The 32-year-old Honda also scored at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups.

Against the Samurai Blue, his performance proved crucial - and was named Man of the Match and with his curtain-raiser, became the seventh-highest goalscorer in the history of Senegal, with 14 goals.

It bounced back off his leg for his first World Cup goal. For six full months we've known that one of Germany, Mexico or giant killers Sweden was going to go home early.

"We have another important game, we need a positive result to qualify for the second round", Mane said.

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku to recover from injury in time to face England
Japan are in the best position on paper as they sit top and face already-eliminated Poland. A hard pathPhoto Belgium has scored eight goals so far in this World Cup .

Japan coach Akira Nishino said he plans to hound the star striker out of the game and is prepared to put three men on Mane if necessary. "Frankly, we were not very good". Senegal, who reached the quarterfinals in the country's previous World Cup appearance in 2002, needed just over 10 minutes to go in front.

They did the same after Japan's victory over Colombia and Senegal's win over Poland on Tuesday.

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.

Japan failed to deal with a right-wing cross with Genki Haraguchi nodding the ball straight to Senegal defender Youssouf Sabaly in the box. Pleased with himself and the players of the team whose dances are a longstanding tradition.

Later, in the other Pool-H game at Kazan, Colombia kept their Round-of-16 hopes alive with a 3-0 win over Poland, who bowed out, following their second straight defeat.

Meanwhile, there were few positives for Poland to cling on to from their encounter with Senegal, as they made sloppy errors at the back and struggled to get the most from attacking superstar Robert Lewandowski.
