Theresa May handed Belgian shirt ahead of World Cup clash with England

Senegal lost to Colombia 1-0 while Japan lost 1-0 to Poland, so Japan made it to the Round of 16 with four points and a tie with Senegal.

That meant Japan surrendered top spot in Group H to Colombia, but it kept the Samurai Blue ahead of Senegal on fair play.

In the case of Senegal and Japan, both teams obtained the same number of points when they met (one point), they scored the same number of goals in that game (2-2) and so, it boiled down to fair play points.

After the game, Pekerman told reporters he was anxious about the condition of the 26-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich from Real Madrid, while also attempting to play down the situation given Colombia's qualification for the last 16.

England manager Gareth Southgate said the match was "a good test for us, but we had half an eye on the knockout stages". Colombia, which won the group with six points, will play the second place team in that group on Tuesday in Moscow. "It worked against us".

As Gary Lineker pointed out, "England haven't won a knockout game at a major tournament for 12 years and we're discussing playing to lose to avoid a more hard quarter final".

African nations' record at Russian Federation 2018 (not including Tunisia's final group game) reads played 14, won two, drawn two, lost 10.
