Group H Games

Tuesday, 19th June

Travel to Colombia Colombia vs Japan Travel to Japan in Saransk (1:2)

Colombia were down to ten men within three minutes; after Carlos Sanchez was dismissed for deliberate handball.

Russia 2018 Shinji Kagawa then put Japan ahead from the spot.

Russia 2018 Six minutes before half-time, Juan Quintero levelled for Colombia from a free-kick.

Half-time: Colombia 1 - Japan 1

Russia 2018 Japan made good use of their man advantage and it was little surprise when they restored their lead through Yuya Osako's 73rd minute header.

Travel to Poland Poland vs Senegal Travel to Senegal in Moscow Spartak (1:2)

It took a while coming, with neither team willing to take a risk and both playing somewhat predictable; although Senegal did look a little racy with Mbaye Niang.

Russia 2018 Lukasz Piszczek was aware of Niang's threat and tried to pull him down; but the ball had already been released down the left to Sadio Mane and squared to Idrissa Gueye. As Michal Pazdan threw himself towards the ball, Gueye shot across the face of the goal and was lucky that Thiago Cionek was standing in the middle, to deflect the ball past Wojciech Szczesny.

Advantage Africa.

Half-time: Poland 0 - Senegal 1

Russia 2018 A ridiculous back-pass, on the hour, saw Szczesny run half way up the pitch to try and clear it. Niang, on from the sideline, beat him to it and ran the ball into an empty net.

VAR didn't give Senegal a penalty five minutes from time.

Russia 2018 Two minutes later, Grzegorz Krychowiak headed Poland back into the game; from a Kamil Grosicki free-kick. Great delivery.

As Poland pushed in search of an equaliser, Khadim Ndiaye made a vital punched clearance to keep them out, just before the final whistle.

Sunday, 24th June

Travel to Japan Japan vs Senegal Travel to Senegal in Ekaterinburg (2:2)

Russia 2018 Liverpool's Sadio Mane put Senegal ahead in the twelfth minute, knocking in the loose ball with his knee from Eiji Kawashima's low double punch block.

Russia 2018 Even though they weren't really in the game, Japan pulled one back eleven minutes before half-time; Takashi Inui striking low inside the right post, after a fine lay off on the left by Yuto Nagatomo.

Half-time: Japan 1 - Senegal 1

Japan came close to taking the lead on the hour, as the ball ran across the face of the Senegal goal; but Yuya Osako couldn't get on the end of it.

Inui almost had a second, a few minutes late; his shotr flying off the top of the crossbar.

Russia 2018 Twenty minutes from time, Sadio Mane flicked the ball over a defender on the left, the ball was pulled back across the Japan goal by Youssouf Sabaly. Niang flicked a backheel away from goal for Moussa Wague to run in to the box and slam the ball into the back of the net.

Russia 2018 Dreadful defending by Senegal saw substitute Keisuke Honda all alone in the middle to level the score for Japan.

Travel to Poland Poland vs Colombia Travel to Colombia in Kazan (0:3)

A comfortable win over Poland for Colombia.

Yerry Mina got Colombia off the mark, just before the break.

Radamel Falcao scored his first ever World Cup Finals goal in the 70th minute and Juan Cuadrado rounded off the masterclass in the 75th.

Thursday, 28th June

Travel to Japan Japan vs Poland Travel to Poland in Volgograd (0:1)

Poland are out and their goal in the second-half, from a free-kick, could take Japan with them; if Senegal and Colombia remained scoreless in Samara.

Then Colombia scored and Japan had to wait for the result in the other game, where Senegal were going out on fair play.

The final fifteen minutes of the match was a farce and it could have all gone sour had Senegal scored an equaliser.

Travel to Senegal Senegal vs Colombia Travel to Colombia in Samara (0:1)

VAR was called on in the 17th minute and the referee had to righly overturn his Senegal penalty decision; after closely watching the great recovery tackle from the heel of Colombia's Davinson Sanchez on Sadio Mane.

Colombia came close with an early free-kick, otherwise it was Senegal who looked the most dangerous in the first forty-five minutes.

No goals in Volgograd either, so if things stay as they are Colombia would be out.

Half-time: Senegal 0 - Colombia 0

Poland's goal against Japan, just before the hour in Volgograd, threw a lifeline for the South Americans.

Russia 2018 The tables turned in the 74th minute when Colombia took matters into their own hands to possibly eliminate Senegal and bring Japan back into the picture; who are on fewer yellow cards. Headed in by Yerry Mina with real conviction.

And if we were to get really carried away and England win their group; then they would face Japan in the Second Round.

But it's not over yet. Senegal need to score if they want to stay in the tournament. A draw will be enough for them; no matter what Japan do, or don't do. Or Poland could score a second.

Alas, no team from Africa made it out of the Group Stage.

Second Round - Round of 16

Monday, 2nd July

Travel to Belgium Belgium vs Japan Travel to Japan in Rostov-on-Don (3:2)

Japan were in the driving seat for much of the game but were out done by a Belgium counter attack masterclass in stoppage time.

Tuesday, 3rd July

Travel to Colombia Colombia vs England Travel to England in Moscow Spartak (1:1aet 3:4pens)

Colombia equalised in the last minute of stoppage time but lost out in the penalty shootout.
