Another chance!

And this time it’s Japan who go close once again.

A corner from the right drops perfectly for Osako 8 yards out, but his goal-bound effort is well blocked by Salif Sane!


Senegal are back in front!

A lovely piece of skill and driven cross from Sabaly down the left falls to the arriving Moussa Wague at the back-post, with the young full-back driving home a brilliant finish to give The Lions of Teranga the lead once more!

Off the bar!

Now it’s Japan who look the more dangerous side in this thoroughly-entertaining affair!

A wonderful break from the Blue Samarais sees Osako break the offside trap before playing Inui in with a gorgeous back-heel, but the latter’s curled effort from the edge of the box clips the upright.

Brilliant football all-round.


Huge chance!

Osako looks destined to put Japan in front but the Koln man somehow manages to completely miss his kick from 6 yards out!

Tense moments

Senegal beginning to take control of proceedings once again as we approach the hour mark.

All still to play for!


The first opportunity following the interval falls to Japan, but Osako’s header is comfortably held by Khadim N’Diaye.

Colourful support


We’re back in action at the Ekaterinburg Arena!


Senegal have not lost any of their previous 14 fixtures in which Sadio Mane has scored.


The sides head in at the half with the scores level.

Senegal started off much the stronger but Japan grew into things as the opening 45 wore on.

All to play for following the interval.

M’Baye Niang is sent through on goal by NDiaye, but Kawashima does well to close the African down and make the save.


Japan equalize through Inui!

A superb piece of play from the Samurais sees a lofted ball over the top taken down by Nagatomo, who’s layoff is brilliantly bent home by Inui.

Senegal 1-1 Japan

Dangerous duo

Senegal’s dynamic pairing of Moussa Wague and Ismaila Sarr down the right looking full of attacking intent once again this afternoon.

The duo played a crucial role in the African outfit’s opening day win over Poland.

Video: Mane puts Senegal in front in fortuitous circumstances


Senegal take the lead through Sadio Mane following a mistake from Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima.

A tame strike from the left from Youssouf Sabaly should be easily dealt with by Kawashima, but the veteran shot-stopper only manages to punch the ball off of Mane’s knee and into the Japanese net.

Senegal 1-0 Japan

Impressive start

Senegal off to a strong start here, with a pair of dangerous deliveries from the right causing problems for the Japanese defence.


We’re underway at the Ekaterinburg Arena!

Japan vs Senegal live streaming: Match preview

Group H restarts with the jubilant Japanese coming up against Senegal at the Ekaterinburg Arena.

Japan come into the game following good fortune having beaten group favourites Colombia. Japan were assisted by an early red card to Carlos Sanchez which shifted the flow of power in favour of the Samurai Blue. Juan Quintero gave Colombia hope before with his moment of magic in the free kick however Yuya Osako ensured three points for the side.

With 3 points in the bag against the the group’s most formidable side Japan will fancy their chances to qualify with the need for 1 more win. The Samurai’s will play their heart out to win against Senegal who are also confident in qualification with a victory against Japan. It will be a competitive battle between two underdogs who can smell the whiff of qualification.

Former Japanese midfielder Hidetoshi Suzuki and team reporter has faith in the team that beat Colombia. “Japan coach Nishino will probably choose the same starting line-up as the last match against Columbia, which would mean Keisuke Honda remaining on the bench.

Defender Gen Shoji, who was surprisingly chosen to partner Maya Yoshida, enjoyed a strong World Cup debut. Japan will need to make sure they match Senegal’s work ethic and spirit, and Nishino stated “Japan’s strength is unit play”.


Senegal come into the game with a confident victory against Poland where they showed a superiority in both technique, position as well as the stereotypical physicality. They will look to iconic 2004 team for inspiration. They are undefeated in group-stage matches at the World Cup. Their four-match unbeaten record is now one clear of the mark set by Germany DR and Wales.

Senegal won the most important game of the group against 2nd place favourites Poland. They will be confident that a victory will all but secure them qualification.

Senegal are confident in their chances for a 2nd qualification in their 2 years at the tournament. However they are aware of the threat that Japan pose. “We must not give up and we must continue to work. Nothing is yet acquired, we must continue to work to achieve our goal. “It’s a good team. We are preparing and we will have time to study this team from Japan, which has qualities.” M’Baye Niang said.
