Japan vs Senegal
2018 FIFA World Cup
Both Japan and Senegal find themselves firmly in the contest for spots in the Round of 16 after a 2-2 draw.
Japan and Senegal will meet in the second match of the groups stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup for both sides, and it may well be a game that sees one lock in a spot in the final sixteen.

Both of these sides were able to take wins in their first match of the groups stage, and funnily enough both happened to do so with a 2-1 scoreline.
Japan defeated Colombia shortly before Senegal defeated Poland, giving both of these nations a nice early advantage in seeking to make it to the knockout stage of the tournament.
The end result is that both already has three points to their name and that means they only need a single win to guarantee passage into the round of 16.
The loser – or both sides in the case of a draw – will still be vulnerable to being overtaken by one of Poland or Colombia, especially if one of them decisively wins the other Group H matchup today.
Senegal will come into this one as favourites, but by no means comfortable favourites, and it could prove to be a tight contest between the two.
Senegal are ranked No.27 in the world, Japan No.61.
A victory for the Senegalese, and passage into the Round of 16, looks the most likely result.
