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

  • Japanese and Senegal Fans Earn World Wide Respect For Cleaning Up After World Cup Matches- WORLD OF BUZZ

Colombia coach Jose Pekerman is toying with the idea of playing attacking midfielders James Rodriguez and Juan Fernando Quintero in tandem during Sunday's crucial World Cup clash with Poland. Both teams know a defeat would likely end their hopes of advancing to the knockout round. But as it turned out, he had to be rushed back to add some presence to the team, especially after their opening defeat to Uruguay, but it was clear he wasn't ready.

The result leaves both teams, who beat Colombia and Poland respectively in their opening matches, on four points from two games and within reach of a spot in the last 16.

"It will be like a final". "It's a hard working team".

Senegal features one of the most balanced sides around and the ability to score on quick counter-attacks or work nice build-up play gives them options. Panama are still searching for their first ever World Cup goal. Being forced to watch his countrymen reach the quarterfinals without him was heartbreaking for the Monaco striker, who did everything this season to arrive in Russian Federation in peak physical form.

He also made news by arguing forcefully that global soccer needs more black coaches.

The 23-year old French-born forward has not been in the best of form for his club Torino, where he plays on loan from AC Milan, registering just a mere 4 goals and 1 assist in 26 league appearance for the Turin based side.

Aside from heading home the victor against Colombia, Osako was instrumental in Japan's opening goal, beating his man and forcing a save that rebounded to teammate Shinji Kagawa, whose subsequent shot was handled by defender Carlos Sanchez.

Falcao subsequently found himself isolated up front, and had limited opportunities. In Mane, the Africans have a player who can win a match on his own. "It was not easy to play in these conditions". "Once the game starts, we need to be completely focused on getting three points".

We've nearly reached the final round of group games at the 2018 World Cup but in groups G and H, there's still plenty to be decided.

The pressure is now on, not just for Rodriguez, but in the knowledge that Jose Nestor Pekerman's six-and-a-half-year stint - only three other coaches at the World Cup have been in place longer - in charge would have a huge stain should Colombia lose against a Poland side ranked eighth by Federation Internationale de Football Association and also needing a result.

"First time in a long time since we've seen a hat-trick from England player in the World Cup, absolutely delighted for Harry and the team", tweeted Hurst. "Above all, we didn't live up to our potential".

"It is possible to stop him but the trouble is that he has influence too on other players, and that is what we are concerned about".

Colombia coach Jose Pekerman has hinted that 2014 Golden Boot victor James Rodriguez could start against the Poles, who were beaten by Senegal in their opening game.

But, the brutal reality is that none of the five African countries who are in Russian Federation arrived there ranked among the top 20 nations, in the world, on the FIFA world rankings.
