FIFA World Cup Day 11 Predictions Including Senegal vs Japan
How Senegal’s masterful tactics led to victory over Poland
24 June, 2018, 21:08
The match, which has been billed as one between Senegal's physicality and Japan's tactical nous, will see the victor reach six points and take a huge step towards qualifying for the knockout stages.
Yet despite Japan's dominance, Senegal stood firm and got their reward for withstanding the pressure when a ball across the area fell to Moussa Wague and the full-back blasted it high into the back of the net to score his first ever global goal.
Former AC Milan man Honda came off the bench to set up Yuya Osako's victor against Colombia but also put Japan's defence under pressure with an error - which he defended - in the closing stages against the South Americans.
Colombia on the other hand will also be looking for their first points of the World Cup after starting the tournament with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Japan on Sunday morning.
If a result comes from the match between Poland and Colombia later on Sunday, the loser will be eliminated and the victor will join the race for the two qualifying spots on offer.
Poland are largely unchanged from the team that reached Euro 2016 quarter-finals where they lost on penalties to eventual champions Portugal. "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".
"I think we can fool them if we are crafty, including on set pieces, and I also get the impression we can target their goalkeeper".
Although no one can no for sure, I have my doubts that Japan would have won its opener had it not been for the red card.
After scoring his first global goal, which proved to be a decisive second for Senegal against Poland, M'Baye Niang said that the story is still not over as they have a lot more to achieve. "Zapata hadn't played that regularly and when he did he got injures".
It was not a problem he had four minutes later when he laid on a sweet backheel that Inui struck off the crossbar.
Japan is an experienced team - the nation has qualified for the past six World Cups - that could be at full strength against Senegal.
Sabaly turned in the box and hit a low cross that was helped into the path of Wague by Niang and the Belgium-based defender slammed past a helpless Kawashima.
Japan coach Akira Nishino said his team planned to mark Mane closely in Yekaterinburg.
Yuto Nagatomo controlled a long ball inside the left of the area before finding Inui around 15 yards from goal, the Real Betis forward whipping a fine right-footed strike into Khadim N'Diaye's bottom corner.
Cruelly deprived of competing in Brazil by a horrific knee injury, Falcao watched from the sidelines as James, whose sumptuous volley against Uruguay was voted goal of the tournament, took Colombia on a whirlwind journey on their first World Cup appearance since France '98. But Honda ensured things ended level and deservedly so.
