Japan and Senegal Play Out Four Goal Thriller

Senegal team news: Predicted Senegal line up vs Japan – Who will start with Sadio Mane?

Senegal could become the first African country to book a spot in the round of 16 of the ongoing World Cup in Russian Federation, with win against Japan on Sunday evening.

For Sadio Mane, it was a wasted opportunity.

Japan levelled again in the 78th minute when Khadim N'Diaye failed to deal with a cross into the box, leaving Inui free to cut the ball back to the unmarked Keisuke Honda, who made no mistake.

Cisse, Senegal skipper in the country's run to the quarter-finals in 2002, hopes that Mane can be the difference, on what promises to be a nerve-wracking final round of matches on Thursday.

After the goal, Japan coach Akira Nishino immediately pointed to Honda and six minutes later the recently installed manger was clenching his fist.

On the eve of their showdown with the Lions of Teranga, the Werder Bremen forward said Japan could not use the three points from its 2-1 opening win over Colombia as an excuse to settle for a share of the spoils at Ekaterinburg Arena.

Notably, Cisse opted to play Liverpool sensation Sadio Mane deeper in the midfield, advancing to attack rarely, a tactic that could be discarded against Japan if he means more attacking. 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 had a free-kick in a unsafe position but Japan pulled off one of the best offside traps you will ever see.

"But after that I think we did pretty well". "Once the game starts, we need to be completely focused on getting three points".

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. Senegal has conceded just five goals in their last nine games, with four out of the five goals coming in the second half. "We're going to try to manage this and extract the positive points to qualify for the last 16".

At that stage, Mane and his teammates were on course to take charge of Group H with two wins from two matches. Whilst the result was of special significance, as it was the first time that an Asian side had defeated a South American team at a FIFA World Cup.

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

Krychowiak however pulled a goal back in the 86th minute with a header from Kamil Grosicki's free-kick but Senegal held on. The Senegal midfielder passed to Gueye, whose right-footed shot from the arc headed toward Szczesny's far post.


This match thus serves as a Group H tiebreaker.
