Japan come back twice to take a point against Senegal

Japan come back twice to take a point against Senegal”

Whether or not Senegal manage to escape from Group H, their draw with Japan on Sunday will forever be remembered as the game in which Wague announced his arrival on the global stage.

The match against Panama marked England's biggest win ever at the World Cup finals, which secured a last 16 place for the Three Lions while Harry Kane became the first England player scoring a World Cup hat-trick since Gary Lineker in 1986.

Japan fell behind when Eiji Kawashima tried to punch clear a low cross and succeeded only in firing the ball off the legs of Mane and back into his own net, but Nishino is not concerned about the impact of the error on the morale of the experienced goalkeeper.

Mbaye Niang should have restored Senegal's lead five minutes before the break when he broke through on goal, but failed to beat the keeper in a one-on-one as the half ended 1-1.

"It was a tough match, we knew it would be", Japan coach Akira Nishino said. "These are players who have grown", he said.

In a result that does little for either side, Japan got a late goal from Keisuke Honda to earn a point and remain atop of Group H, regardless of the outcome of Sunday's Colombia-Poland match.

Be it their fast pace, their hairdos or their style, Senegal football team is certainly winning hearts in Russian Federation at the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018.

"Of course there is a ball, and through using the ball we are going to take on Senegal".

However, things did not get off to best of starts for him in Russian Federation, as he failed to make much of an impact against Poland in Senegal's tournament opener.

The Senegal striker scored the first goal in his team's 2-2 draw with Japan on Sunday at the World Cup, so there was something to celebrate.

In the 26th minute, Senegal defender Moussa Wague scored his first goal to put his team in the lead again.

"Frankly speaking, I think we are a bit disappointed", Mane said. "Now we have to hope for the best when we face Colombia", Cisse added.

Japan forward Yuya Osako should have been on the score sheet, after missing the connection across a goal.

Nishino knows his team must adapt to the speed, physicality and organisation of the Senegal players.

"Well our locker room after the match, compared to those in the Premier League, is much cleaner", he said.

No Asian team have registered consecutive wins in the group stages of a world cup.
