It's more than Japan brains vs Senegal brawn, says Cisse

How Senegal’s masterful tactics led to victory over Poland

Our panelists offer their previews, with predictions.

There's another similarity between Iceland and Panama that should enter into England's preparation. But England could take the pressure off by beating Panama, a result that would guarantee a spot in the second round.

They continued their wonderful form in the round of 16 by winning against the Henrik Larsson-led Swedish side courtesy of a Henri Camara golden goal after the match had ended 1-1 after normal time. Harry Kane's brilliance continues as he has proven both for Spurs and England that he can score any which way.

The final standings for groups A and B will be decided on the third round of matches, with games taking place simultaneously.

Just look how happy they are.

Preview: Senegal dangerman Sadio Mane says he has no intention of falling into Japan's "trap" for Sunday's pivotal World Cup encounter. If this game produces a victor then one of the knockout slots in this group will be locked down but a draw seems quite possible.

Along with Nigeria, a powerful Senegal side spearheaded by Liverpool striker Sadio Mane are flying the flag for Africa in Russian Federation. If they do not, their fate will be in the hands of the match between Mexico and Sweden.

Can Senegal reach the latter stages of the competition this summer? Based on their opening match against Poland, those prognostications appear accurate.

Japan is to play Senegal on Sunday and Poland on June 28.

"For the past several days, I have been telling my players to gain five centimetres and five kilograms but it failed, so we need other measures", he joked. "We're much looking forward to the match, how we are going to beat them, and I'd like to show you how tomorrow".

Group H had always been an evenly balanced group in terms of relative ability but few would have expected Japan to have beaten this Colombian side.

"But I said that we could win and we will win so we went for victory and that is why I gave them attacking tactics and that is why we are top of the group", said Nishino.

Pape Alioune Ndiaye has replaced Mame Diouf is the only change to the Senegal lineup for the World Cup Group H game against Japan. Whoever loses is out of the tournament.

Falcao, Colombia's all-time top scorer with 29 goals in 74 appearances, has highlighted the danger of Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski, calling him "a striker who can settle matches any time".

"We know he has many qualities, but we must take lots into consideration [when making selections] like injuries, like the one with James".

"He recovered gradually but we have that doubt until the last minute". The princess spoke with squad members and posed for a photo with the senior national side, as well as the Japan under-19 players now attending the camp. He'll need to step up here.
