Japan pulled off the greatest offside trap in history against Senegal

Eiji Kawashima was slow to react to Juan Quintero's goal for Colombia in Japan's opening 2-1 win and the goalkeeper was again at fault for Sadio Mane's early opener, punching against the forward's leg when it looked easier to catch.

Both teams are now on four points after two games with Senegal facing Colombia in their final Group game while Japan will take on Poland both on Thursday. "It is not just Yoshida, but all the players - we are giving them information about Mane, though I am sure he will be in some duels with Mane", Nishino said.

"We didn't play a great game but we didn't lose..." Keisuke Honda has been involved in six of Japan's last eight goals scored at World Cups (three goals and three assists), and is now registered at +292 to score a goal anytime in this game.

Takashi Inui equalised later in the first half with a lovely curled effort into the bottom corner before Moussa Wague restored Senegal's lead with an emphatic finish. "And that's normal because there was a way to win this match".




"Honestly we are all disappointed, there was a way to win and we did not do it", said Mane, who was only a sporadic danger down Senegal's left.

Aliou Cisse, the coach of Senegal and the captain of the 2002 team that reached the quarterfinals, said his team needs to be more aggressive. He was very bright, offered some good touches, and demonstrated the ability to carry the ball and link up play. "Once the game starts, we need to be completely focused on getting three points".

"I don't think it [the delivery] was anything hard but he made that decision which is regrettable", he said. But Japan stunned 10-man Colombia and Nishino revealed that some of his players had wanted to settle for a draw after 45 minutes with the scores locked at 1-1.

Whilst the result was of special significance, as it was the first time that an Asian side had defeated a South American team at a FIFA World Cup. "We're going to try and manage this and extract the positives, in order to qualify for the last 16".
