Japan goalie gifts Senegal goal after committing embarrassing mistake

Shinji Kagawa Japan Colombia World Cup 19062018

Japan have started the 2018 World Cup positively and could face England or Belgium if they progress to the knockout stages.

Twice, Senegal took the lead - first, through Sadio Mane in the 11th minute and, after Takashi Inui had equalised for Japan, Moussa Wague looked to have won it with his 71st minute strike.

The group's other game will see Poland and Colombia square off to try and get their World Cup back on track after opening day loses to Senegal and Japan respectively.

Mane told reporters: "To be honest, we are all disappointed. And that's normal because there was a way to win this match", Mane said.

Pizzi looking for improvements as Saudi Arabia face Uruguay
Uruguay will now take on hosts Russian Federation , in a clash that will determine who finishes as the group victor . Suarez's departure was not good in the last two World Cups.

"What we were more concerned about was him giving a positive impact to other players, especially in the first half when we let him and other players play too freely. But as a countermeasure against Sadio Mane I think we did pretty well".

Neither side could find a victor in the final 10 minutes and had to settle for a share of the spoils, which leaves them joint top of Group H with four points each after two matches.

Japan Predicted XI: Eiji Kawashima; Hiroki Sakai, Maya Yoshida, Gen Shoji, Yuto Nagatomo; Makoto Hasebe, Gaku Shibasaki, Genki Haraguchi, Shinji Kagawa, Takashi Inui; Yuya Osako.

With a victory against Japan, they will be looking to continue in their quest to emulate the 2002 World Cup squad or maybe even go further by reaching the Semi-Finals.

"Whether it's Sane or Koulibaly, they're great players". "We can't underestimate the Japanese team that played very well". Aliou Cisse's men played their usual game based on their pace and power but Akira Nishino's team never gave up and gave the continent much to cheer about with a superb battling display. But Japan stunned 10-man Colombia and Nishino revealed that some of his players had wanted to settle for a draw after 45 minutes with the scores locked at 1-1. Senegal has conceded just five goals in their last nine games, with four out of the five goals coming in the second half.

The World Cup match between Japan and Senegal will be broadcast live on FOX.

While Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia are already making plans to return home after failing to secure a point, Senegal can still ensure Africa has at least one representative in the last 16.

The draw keeps both teams at the top of Group H ahead of their final matches.
