Japan 2-2 Senegal: Late Honda goal rescues Japan

Sex symbol, moi? Ask the ladies, says Senegal's Cisse

Sex symbol, moi? Ask the ladies, says Senegal's Cisse

Before this tournament Senegal had not qualified for a World Cup since reaching the quarter-finals in 2002, sending Sweden, Uruguay and France home in the process.

The players showed fiery dance, like some kind of ritual and accompanied it with singing.

After Senegal were pegged back twice by Japan, ESPN FC's Stevie Nicol questions whether they can resolve their defensive issues to advance from the group.

Clips of the coach's fist-pumping goal celebrations while directing a smouldering gaze towards the camera during Senegal's opening game against Poland have gone viral, attracting the attention of admirers around the world. His weak shot was somehow parried on to Sadio Mane's shin by Japanese keeper Eiji Kawashima, following which the ball crept into the back of the net.

The 26-year-old Mane, playing in his first World Cup, was named man of the match, largely because of his goal.

Ahead of their game against Japan on Sunday afternoon, the lads did this and it has since gone viral.

Ireland vs India 1st T20I: Rohit, Dhawan take India past 50
The Irish have a history of upsetting the applecart of higher-rated teams , and India should be wary of the threat. Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and MS Dhoni were rested for the T20 tri-series in Sri Lanka in March.

Sadio Mane gave Senegal the lead in the 11th minute with his first World Cup goal. The Japanese responded seven minutes later and it was Honda who announced his presence with the much-needed equaliser from close range. "We had fun out there", said current tournament top scorer Kane, calling his third "one of the luckiest goals of my life".

Senegal has never lost to Japan in three encounters and this historical state coincided with their confident performance in Russian Federation to make Japan a bit of the underdog in this Group H encounter.

"Despite that we were leading twice and what is annoying were the two goals (conceded). Frankly, we were not very good".

Normally when we do a post about a ball, puck, or occasional hot dog hitting a fan in the head, it's bad news for the fan.

Pochettino's side are already one of the most devastating attacking forces in England, and they would only be stronger with Quintero in their squad.

Princess Hisako of Takamada is the first member of Japan's royal family to visit Russian Federation in more than a century.
