Japan vs Senegal match preview

Japan became the first Asian side to defeat South American opposition at the World Cup in their opener, by beating 10-man Colombia.

Shinji Kagawa and Yuya Osako both netted to guide the third-lowest ranked nation in the competition to three points against the 16th highest ranked nation in the world.

Japan arrived in Russia in rather disappointing form having lost three of their five warm-up friendlies in preparation, however, when it mattered, Akira Nishino’s showed great composure in Mordovia.

Senegal became the first African nation in 2018 to claim three points at the World Cup by stunning the top seeds Poland on Tuesday.

A Thiago Cionek own-goal and a fortuitous second-half strike from M’Baye Niang gifted Aliou Cisse’s side a crucial win.

Both nations now sit on the brink of reaching the last-16, knowing a win and a draw in the other group game between Poland and Colombia would see them advance.
