Yellow card heartache for Senegal, Japan advances despite loss to Poland

Yellow card heartache for Senegal, Japan advances despite loss to Poland

1st minute to 58th minute: With no goals in either games, Japan and Senegal were set to go through with five points each.

"I am here in Brussels in Belgium so of course I am going to be cheering for the home team", he said.

In the evening, Belgium topped Group G after defeating England 1-0, while a complete dead rubber saw Tunisia edge out beat Panama. In this World Cup we have had to go through hard times but this selection can face these type of matches.

Following a 1-0 loss to Colombia, Senegal finished the group stages on equal points with Japan, and with an exactly equal goal differential tally, meaning the teams had to be split via the amount of yellow cards awarded to them throughout the tournament.

Poland's star striker Robert Lewandowski missed a good chance to double the lead in the 74th minute, meaning he failed to score in all three matches he played at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

It is important to note that the fair play conduct rule is applied on the basis of all group matches and not only the fair play conduct during the match between Senegal and Japan in this case. "The fact that (goalkeeper Eiji) Kawashima, who had difficulties in the first two games, was able to make a great save and help out the team was also important".

Colombia's prospects looked bleak a half-hour into the game when playmaker James Rodriguez limped out of the game due to injury.

Nishino ditched his conservative nature, however, and surprised many by making six changes when it was expected that he would once again name an unchanged team.

Poland had an early chance to take the lead in the 32nd minute when Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima stopped a header from Kamil Grosicki.

After that it is goal difference in the group games between the teams concerned is used, then the number of goals scored.

But with minutes remaining, any kind of urgency went from the game. "We didn't qualify because we've earned more yellow cards, but I'm proud of my lads, they've worked hard for this tournament and I think we've showed we can have a bright future".

Although Japan ran the risk of Senegal scoring in their match, no goal materialised and Japan advanced to the round of 16 in spite of their poor sportsmanship.

"I'm not too happy about this but I forced my players to do what I said".

"Dear fans, we're just as disappointed as you", the tweet read.
