SPORTS FIFA World Cup 2018: Poland defeats Japan 1-0
Into the last few minutes of the game in Volgograd where the group remains delicately poised. Japan, trailing 1-0, currently have a foot in the round of 16 courtesy of a better disciplinary record than Senegal.
A goal in either game would change the picture. Still no desire from either side to attack and Japan really are tempting fate. They have everybody back behind the ball. Japan are not really trying to find an equaliser, which is a strange strategy considering an equaliser for Senegal would send Japan home.
