Senegal registers Africa's first win in 2-1 defeat of Poland

Senegal registers Africa's first win in 2-1 defeat of Poland

Japan won 2-1 against Colombia and Senegal won 2-1 against Poland, but that is not all.

Senegal emerged victorious by beating Poland 2-1 in the Group H encounter. Many guessed it was Saudi Arabia's fault, roundly dismissing the Russians as unprepared to move to the next stage in a group that had Egypt and Uruguay in it. And, overall in the first half, we showed character and ambition.

Colombia captain Radamel Falcao, who made his World Cup debut after a knee injury sidelined him in 2014, said his team will approach its remaining group games like "two finals". Colombia conceded a penalty and was a man down within three minutes after Carlos Sanchez received a red card.

The 32-year old blocked a goal-bound shot from former Manchester United star, Shinji Kagawa, with his right arm inside the box leading to his punishment by referee Damir Skomina.

Yuya Osako, 28, is widely known as a talented player for Japan. There's been a lot of self-inflicted pain at the World Cup.

Senegal's first goal in the 37th minute came as a gift to a side that carried a whole continent on its shoulders. But Japan could play its own game in the second half, they adapted to circumstances and scored the winning goal. "We have achieved one objective now and the second game will be crucial to our chances of reaching the knockout phase", defender Maya Yoshida said.

"We think Japan will be a very tough team, we have completely forgotten what happened in the last World Cup", insisted Pekerman, who rarely speaks to the press.
