Japan vs Senegal (By: TFB)
Senegal are back in action against Japan as the African side and Asian side look to coment their places in the last 16 after 2 surprise opening victories.
Senegal pulled off a great victory over Poland, against the side most people fancied to top the group. They now come up against Japan who were not fancied in the slightest before the tournament kicked off and were expected to finish bottom of the group.
The Africans will have the star player on the pitch in Sadio Mane and they will look to the Liverpool striker to supply the goals which could see them advance to the next round. We are unlikely to see many changes to the Senegal line-up after the victory over Poland.
Japan also got off to a great start but had a huge stroke of luck when they were awarded a 6th minute penalty which resulted in a Colombian sending off. Even with a man extra they struggled against the South Americans and Colombia deservedly equalized just before half time. Japan played much better in the 2nd half and got the goal they eventually deserved to take the match 2-1.
Senegal have shown enough pre-World Cup and in their first game to avoid defeat here.
