Enlarge this image

Senegal missed a glorious opportunity to become the first African country to the reach the round of 16 of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup by twice squandering a lead to play out a 2-2 draw with Japan.

"My target was (to win) the World Cup when I was a child because my father showed me the video of Pele playing in the World Cup", Honda explained. A fluid 3-4-3 formation has allowed England's attacking players to flourish with Kane leading the World Cup in goals with five, but it has also seen their back three left exposed at times with both wing backs encouraged to push on.

"Yes, they have fought hard to be here and their technical ability is above average", Cisse, whose side joined Japan at the top of the group with a 2-1 win over Poland, told reporters.

Equally, Mane said, it would be a mistake to focus on any individual in the Japanese team.

"In our group, all the teams are very even".

England and Panama have a 3:00 pm kick-off (1200 GMT) in Nizhny Novgorod meaning players could struggle in temperatures topping 30°C.

World Cup holders Germany were breathing a sigh of relief after Toni Kroos' 95th minute missile of a free kick secured a last-gasp 2-1 win over Sweden on a dramatic Saturday night in Sochi and meant they avoided a humiliating first-round exit.

The mercurial 26-year-old Premier League star will be looking to continue his incredible club form for Liverpool to the national team.

Only Tunisia, who forced a 2-2 draw against Saudi Arabia in Munich, where they needed a 92nd goal for the equaliser, managed to scratch a draw in those opening matches of the World Cup for the African contingent.

President Donald Trump has since tweeted about the jacket in question, saying it was directed at " the Fake News Media ". Melania wore the jacket for her return trip even after she received backlash from the public.

"Something like this can be a big moment in the tournament". "We lost one match but there are two ahead of us, it is all up to us".

With Japan and Senegal both winning their opening games, victory for either would virtually seal a place in the last 16 in Russian Federation.

Wague, who was at the center of Senegal's most enterprising play, then put them back in front.

Japan coach Akira Nishino said his team planned to mark Mane closely in Yekaterinburg.

"We have another important game, we need a positive result to qualify for the second round", Mane said. "He contributes a lot to the team and hopefully he can have a performance (against Senegal) like the one he gave against Colombia". "If we can make all the other African nations proud, that is twice as glorious", Mbaye Niang, who scored the second decisive goal for the Senegalese, said. And, overall in the first half, we showed character and ambition.

Poland and Colombia round off the second round of group matches in the late game in Kazan (kick-off 1900 GMT), both knowing they dare not lose if the want to retain any realistic hope of progressing.

James Rodriguez is expected to start this game after coming on as a substitute in the opener, while Radamel Falcao will also provide a scoring threat.

Russia, after two victories, will surely advance to the next round and importantly, it will be the first time they've done so since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
