Japan advances over Senegal on yellow card tiebreaker and Twitter has thoughts

Image via Fox News

Senegal have trashed out of the World Cup following their 1-0 deat to Colombia on Thursday.

When already-eliminated Poland stunned Japan 1-0 in Volgograd and Senegal suffered a 1-0 defeat, it left Japan and Senegal with the same points and the same goals difference.

After disappointing defeats to Senegal and Colombia, Poland didn't appear too daunting a task for the hitherto undefeated Japan. Japan progresses because it got fewer yellow cards than Senegal.

England vs. Belgium kicks-off at 7 pm (BST).

They could not, and so bow out of the tournament, meaning there is no African nation in the knockouts of a World Cup for the first time in 36 years. The next tiebreaker would be points earned in matches between the teams that are tied, but Japan and Senegal played to a 2-2 draw when they met in the group stage, so that was a wash as well.

"My players were very loyal in listening to me and following my decision".

Japan accumulated four yellow cards during the three group games, while Senegal accumulated six yellow cards.

After the fair play rule, there was only one other way a tiebreaker could have been solved, which would have been the drawing of lots by FIFA Organizing Committee.

M'Baye Niang was the only Senegal player cautioned in a decisive 1-0 defeat to Colombia in Samara, where Barcelona defender Yerry Mina headed the south Americans' victor on 77 minutes.

There's also a chance Ireland could qualify for the next World Cup and end up falling at the first hurdle too. Colombia, which won the group with six points, will play the second place team in that group on Tuesday in Moscow. "You have to be in contact with other players when you play football". When the two teams met in their group clash, the match ended 2-2.
