Japan advances despite loss to Poland at World Cup

28 June, 2018, 21:42 | Author: Amy Huff

Jan Bednarek got the solitary goal of the match in the 59th minute when he beat his marker at the far post to volley in a swirling free-kick from Rafal Kurzawa.

It is they that will kick on to the knockout stages of the World Cup, despite finishing their group with an identical points and goals tally to Senegal, who'll be on a plane home in the next 48 hours.

This marked the first time in World Cup history that a team progressed out of the group stage via their Fair Play record.

"It's the law of football, the law of fair play, and we had less points in that aspect and we have to accept it". Yep, Senegal have been eliminated because they picked up more yellow cards that the Japanese.

Senegal needed a draw to advance to the last 16. "We have fewer points in fair play and Senegal doesn't qualify because we don't deserve it", Cisse said after the game.

"Of course, We would prefer to be eliminated another way".

Here is how Senegal's 1-0 defeat to Colombia played out.

"I do not know if this rule is cruel or not, but I can't ask my players to jump on the court to not receive yellows", said the Senegalese coach, visibly disappointed. "It's a shame that this has worked against us".

"I think it should be more of a positive thing rather than pressure", Koulibaly added in reference to being the last African side.

Teams are given minus one point for a yellow card, minus three for a sending off for two bookings, and minus four for a straight red.
