Of The 16 2018 FIFA World Cup Round Of 16 Spots Confirmed!

Of The 16 2018 FIFA World Cup Round Of 16 Spots Confirmed!”

Here is how each team could advance to the knockout round.

In a insane, unforeseen tiebreaker, Japan finished with four points just like Senegal.

Japan go through to the last due to Fifa Fair Play rule after receiving 3 yellow cards while Senegal received 6.

The Lions of Teranga lost 1-0 to Colombia today and despite Group H rivals Japan losing 1-0 to Poland, it is the Japanese that will progress to the next round of the competition owing to their superior disciplinary record.

The match was often lethargic anyway in the 36°C heat, but the stupor was broken at the 59th minute when Poland's Rafal Kurzawa floated a free kick to the far post and an unmarked Jan Bednarek scored from close range.

With the tiebreaker, Colombia and Japan advanced to the round of 16 with Colombia winning Group H.

As the game continued, it barely got above walking pace, prompting many inside the Volgograd Arena to show their displeasure by whistling and booing.

That suggested Japan's coach Akira Nishino had perhaps been overly confident when he made six changes to the line up, excluding midfielder Takashi Inui, whom he then brought on in the 65th minute.

England await either Colombia or Japan depending on their result against Belgium tonight.

Japan topped the group going into the final round of games, needing just a point to be assured of a place in the knockout stage for only the second time since 2002, when they were co-hosts.

Senegal, however, has become the first victim of the new tiebreaker.

"We've worked a great deal, we're very committed and we want to be in the last 16".
