The final Group H table

Full-time

Despite a 1-0 loss, Japan are heading to the Last-16!

Senegal could not grab a crucial equalizer, meaning the superior disciplinary record of the Asian outfit seals their place in the next round!

Tension

The nerves are written all over the faces of Japan’s fans, as a goal from either Poland or Senegal would see the Blue Samarai heading home.

Less than 5 minutes to go now.

Changing by the minute

Crucial goal

Colombia have taken the lead vs Senegal, meaning Japan have now leapfrogged the latter into 2nd in the Group H table!

Huge chance!

Robert Lewandowski’s World Cup woes continue, as the Bayern Munich striker somehow manages to screw his effort from 6 yards out over the bar.

Japan would have been dead and buried!

Substitution

Takashi Inui, Japan’s best player during their thrilling 2-2 draw with Senegal last time out, comes on in the place of Takashi Usami.

Second-half

We’re back underway at the Volgograd Arena!

Half-time

Referee Janny Sikazwe brings the opening 45 minutes to a close, with few clear-cut chances to speak of.

Japan seemingly happy to play for a draw… A dangerous tactic on the part of the Blue Samarai.

Chance!

Poland go close through a superb header from Grosicki, but the Hull City man’s effort is miraculously kept out by a flying Kawashima.

Goal-line technology shows that Poland were just inches away from taking the lead!

Struggles

Poland continuing their dismal form to this point in the tournament during the opening 25 minutes this afternoon.

Japan, despite their rake of changes, looking the better side thus far.

Disjointed

Japan boss Akira Nishino’s decision to make a surprising 6 changes to his side looks to be having an effect on the flow of the Blue Samarai so far, with the Asians looking a little disjointed to this point.

The action begins

We’re underway at the Volgograd Arena!

Poland's fans are in fine form!

Japan vs Poland live streaming: Match preview

Group F kicks off with Polish coming up against the Japanese at the Volgograd Arena.

Japan come into the game, sitting cozy in the drivers seat. Having picked up four points from two games against their qualification rivals. The hard part is done.

Japan

If Japan avoid defeat against the all ready crestfallen and eliminated Polish, they’ll secure qualification. The bijou Japanese team that ply their trade through high speed football will look to press the Polish and pin-ball the the football around the pitch aiming to dislodge Poland’s defence.

The Blue Samurai will view this game against the despondent Poland as an opportunity to claim victory and with it, top spot. They will not take their chances and aim for a point. “Japan are not the kind of team that can aim for a point and go and carry that plan out,” said captain Makoto Hasebe.

“I think we have to focus on getting three points rather than make calculations. We have four points after two games but we haven’t accomplished anything yet.”

In the off-chance that Japan and Senegal were to end in second place and with identical goal difference and number of goals scored, then the side progressing could be decided by the amount of yellow and red cards received.

If for some chance that can’t separate the sides, then FIFA will in a heart in mouth moment draw lots to resolve who goes through. In an incredibly rare event that fans will be eager to witness.

Poland

Poland come into the game following a battering from Colombia which saw their nation’s hopes evaporate. The side who have completely underperformed will look to make amends and attempt to consolidate the fans with a victory in the final game of their campaign. Poland have only pride to play for now.

The team failed to supply their star man Lewandowski and in an honest interview he shares the same belief. “Many things did not go as they should today, during this World Cup,” said Lewandowski after their 3-0 loss to Colombia. “I was alone, we fought, I fought, I did everything I could, but fighting is not enough to win World Cup matches, you also have to have quality, and we had too little of that.”

Poland will likely revert back their 4-2-3-1 following their demolition by Colombia in a hope to avoid losing all three group games for the first time in their history.
