Teams already in Round of 16 and who can join them

  • Thibaut Courtois

Incredibly cynical, but understandable given that had Japan had conceded a second goal to already eliminated Poland, then it would be them that would finish third, Senegal going through on goal difference in that situation.

Senegal only needed a point in their final Group H game to reach the next round, but they will head home disappointed by not only the result but the fashion in which it played out.

Shinji Okazaki has been included among six changes to Japan's starting lineup for its last World Cup group match against Poland.Coach Akira Nishino prefaced changes by speaking of the need to pick a team that can cope with the hot conditions in the Volgograd Arena.

Basically, FIFA has made a decision to reward teams that don't collect yellow and red cards.

Cisse said they had been well aware of the rules and that they had to be respected.

New Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte presented a plan that argues existing European Union asylum rules are obsolete and "paradoxical".

Senegal were denied a penalty in the first half of their decisive defeat, referee Milorad Mazic initially pointing to the spot when Davinson Sanchez challenged Sadio Mane in the box. "Of course Japan's scouts and staff were there analyzing the Colombia-Senegal game, watching how it was panning out and reporting to the manager".

Colombia coach Jose Pekerman said he was "extremely concerned" for James Rodriguez after he limped off during their win over Senegal.

Victory for the lowlands country in the final group game on Thursday night could be a win for both sides, the Taoiseach said.

Only two slots in the knockout stage remain up for grabs and both will be decided in the first round of matches that will kick off on Thursday.

Poland is going home after a disappointing 1-2-0 record in the group stage, while Japan will play the Group H victor (Belgium or England) at 2 p.m. ET on Monday in the Round of 16.

In February, she was arrested under similar circumstances and charged with four misdemeanor counts of battery on an officer. The police were originally alerted to the situation by a family member, who informed them of a disturbance near her home.

Januzaj suddenly sparked the game into life moments later when he twisted and turned inside the England box before curling a wonderful strike into the top corner.

England rued a wasted opportunity by Marcus Rashford after 66 minutes, when he fired wide after finding himself one-on-one with Thibaut Courtois in the Belgian goal. But they are out because they had two more yellow cards than Japan.

Bednarek beat his marker at the far post in the 59th minute to volley in a swirling free-kick from Rafal Kurzawa.

Unfortunately, a loss to Mexico in their first game saw them fall flat in the competition, and they seemed like an uninspired team who only recorded one win.
