FIFA World Cup 2018: Poland beat Japan 1-0

Japan achieved the last 16 of the World Cup by having a superior disciplinary record than Senegal – in the wake of losing to Poland in their last Group H diversion.

The match completed in ludicrous mold, with the two sides cheerful to play the ball around at the back for a great part of the last quarter.

Akira Nishino’s side completed with a similar number of focuses, objectives scored and objectives surrendered as Senegal, yet were demonstrated just four yellow cards amid the gathering stage to the African side’s six.

Southampton protector Jan Bednarek’s well-taken volley following Rafal Kurzawa’s free-kick won the counterpart for Poland, who were at that point wiped out.

In fact Japan substitute Makoto Hasebe, who went ahead with eight minutes staying, made a ‘card’ motion to his colleagues to make it obvious they were through as it stood.

Nishino said he passed on guidelines to the group to go out on a limb and gather no yellow cards when he sent Hasebe on.
