Senegal vs Colombia, 28 June 2018

Japan, Colombia, and Senegal will battle for 2 spots in the knockout stage at the World Cup - here's what each team needs to happen

Preview: Senegal coach Aliou Cisse told star man Sadio Mane to step up at the World Cup even though the Liverpool forward got on the scoresheet in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Japan on Sunday.

Heading into the final day of the group stage, three teams - Japan, Colombia, and Senegal - are all still in control of their destinies as they battle for one of the final two spots up for grabs in the knockout round. All eyes will now be on the other group match between Poland and Colombia - defeat for either side will be the end of their tournament in Russian Federation.

"He can do better, but he was better against Japan than he was against Poland and he needs to do better against Colombia".

Senegal will be concerned by the potential of letting slip a favourable position, after kicking off the tournament with a 2-0 win over Poland and then being in command against Japan, only to prove unable to secure all the points. Kickoff for the critical match between the African and South American sides is scheduled for 5 p.m. Moscow Standard Time at Samara Arena in Samara, Russia, on Thursday, June 28.

Colombia might control the run of play and create more chances, but Senegal will be risky on the counter-attack.

"It led to the goals and now we have a good position in this World Cup".

"We came here for more, so it wouldn't be a good result for us not to reach the second round", Pekerman said.

Belgium and England await whichever two teams make it out of Group H.

Senegal and Colombia are also in action on Thursday as both teams chase a place in the last 16.

The Lions of Teranga will have to sharpen up if they are to prevail against a vibrant Colombia attack that turned on the style in the second half of their win over Poland.
