Pekerman dedicates Colombia win to 'deeply affected' Sanchez after death threat report

Most of the Senegal players feature in different Europen clubs and with plenty of experience, they could make life tough for Japan.

The Three Lions impressed in the first half of their win against Tunisia but also showed their inexperience, making the match a lot harder than it should have been after the break. The country first qualified for the sport's marquee tournament in 1998 and hasn't missed a World Cup since, reaching the round of 16 in 2002 and 2010.

Current World Cup top scorer on five goals after two games, Kane was then substituted for Jaime Vardy up front, to a standing ovation from the almost 2,500 England fans at Nizhny Novgorod.

The tension at Kazan Arena was evident from the opening whistle, with both teams tackling at every opportunity while simultaneously playing with caution early on.

A win for England would see them head into a final group game against Belgium to determine who finishes top.

Senegal and Japan have been part of the uprising of the underdogs at this World Cup, in the mix among the lower-ranked teams that are surprisingly taking points from the favorites. The two will be at close quarters come matchday and Mane said: "I know him very well, we played and trained together at Southampton and we used to chat together at the gym".

In a disappointing 2-1 loss to Japan in Colombia's first match, the South Americans were reduced to ten men, following the dismissal of midfielder Carlos Sanchez, and a goal behind in the opening minutes. A draw would be ideal for both to move on while a win would all but guarantee it. Colombia and Poland clash in the late game, both needing a win to keep pace in the group.

They now have the chance to turn things around against Poland, who also lost their first match against an impressive Senegal side who could also provide a stumbling block for Colombia next week.

Japan failed to deal with a right-wing cross with Genki Haraguchi nodding the ball straight to Senegal defender Youssouf Sabaly in the box.

"James is doing very well, that's what we've seen in the training sessions. It's them or us".

"No.3, we need to regain our confidence, the one we had coming to Russian Federation. Against Colombia. We will play differently and better than today".

"We need to be able to play to our full potential rather than being reactive to the opposition's strength", coach Akira Nishino said. Senegal fans won the hearts of millions when they cleaned up their section inside the stadium before leaving the ground after victory against Poland.

The 29-year-old striker has averaged nearly a goal a game for Bayern in the past three seasons, and 57 percent of Poland's goals in World Cup qualifying came from the Warsaw native.

The Poles came out firing at the start of the second half but their limitations remained and Cuadrado was soon causing them more problems down the right.
