Japan vs Senegal

Recommended Posts

Japan coach Nishino asked how his team will combat Senegal: ‘In last few days I told my players to grow 5cm and put on 5kg. They couldn’t do it. So instead we will have to try to win by using the ball well.’

Who are you gunning for?

5-5 thriller. Or both sides play out a gentlemanly draw to give themselves the best chance of qualifying.

It's good to see the manager using players on form, Senegal's captain Cheikhou Kouyate benched again. The front 3 of Senegal hopefully make it an interesting match,

I'm only half-watching but so far Senegal unsurprisingly look clearly superior.

Great finish there from Inui, he's been great for years and deserved that goal.

Kind of want this to be a draw, later to be a draw and then Japan and Senegal both to lose the last game so every side in the group is on 4 points

Great work by Nagatomo.

Totally unintentional, it was a terrible first touch. :D

Two in 2 games for Inui right? Good finish that was.

Kagawa and Osako were Japan's scorers vs Colombia.

Senegal leaving more space than versus Poland- that's ruined the good initial work. Osako playing a solid hold-up game again.

I'd like to see this as a draw cos I want Senegal and Japan to progress.

Welp nobody challenging the Japanese attackers there

Japan look alright here but I think their lack of pace would make them England's easiest game from this group.

Well, if Senegal and JP draw here, Senegal defeat Colombia and Japan avoid defeat against Poland, they'll be our opponents (provided we at least draw with Belgium and have less bookings than them).

Don't think we should be particularly worried about any of them as prospective opponents. But if you look at each side individually then Senegal and Colombia have the potential to cause issues in our defence with their pacey players, Poland have a world class striker in Lewandowski whereas Japan are organised but not much more tbh.

Not a booking? :D I'd say if you've just knocked down two players in a row with your flailing arm, you're probably on for a booking..

Yeah that was quite a spectacular move, the assist and the shot, unlucky not to score.

Well Lewa's been world class in the past but he's seemed extremely disinterested lately, like Messi for Argentina.

True, but you wouldn't want to become complacent around him.
