World Cup Group H match report Japan v Poland 28 June 2018

World Cup Group H match report Japan v Poland 28 June 2018”

Needing only a draw from their tie against an already eliminated Poland, the Robert Lewandowski-led side that charged through their qualifying campaign have been had a disastrous World Cup; losing to both Senegal and Colombia without ever offering any suggestion to the contrary.

The Polish captain Robert Lewandowski is renowned as a world-class goalscorer for Bayern Munich but, as in the rest of Poland's sorry World Cup campaign, he was seeing little of the ball.

Colombia fans watching in Samara cheered when news filtered through of the Poland goal.

Japan secured their ticket to the knockout round of the 2018 World Cup, despite suffering a 1-0 loss to Poland on Thursday evening.

Kawashima did it again in the second half to prevent what would have been Tomoaki Nakino own goal. As time went on, however, Japan's grip on the game strengthened and they went close in the 12th minute when Shinji Okazaki headed wide from Yuto Nagatomo's cross.

The Eastern Europeans did indeed prove more combative than the Japanese, but Japan's goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima made a spectacular save that denied Kamil Grosicki's header right before it crossed the line in the first half.

Japan and Poland were booed from the pitch in Volgograd after a farcical end to their final Group H match which saw the Blue Samurai qualify for the last 16 despite a 1-0 defeat.

Until then, Japan had looked content to contain Poland in stifling heat in Volgograd and they left in-form midfielder Takashi Inui on the bench until they were chasing an equalizer. Japan needs to avoid defeat to make it to the round of 16.

Senegal's six yellow cards to Japan's four ultimately cost the African side, which exits Russian Federation in disappointing circumstances.
