Japan vs Senegal: Mane needs to improve, says Coach Cisse

Senegal coach Cisse Sad Over Draw With Japan

Senegal took the lead in the 12th minute after Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima's poor clearance ricocheted off Sadio Mane at the near post and sailed into the back of the net, 0-1.

On 71 minutes, soon after hitting the Senegal bar, Japan allowed a scuffed cross to go right across their goal and defender Moussa Wague arrived all alone at the far post to grab what looked like being an unlikely victor.

With Japan and Senegal both winning their opening games, victory for either would virtually seal a place in the last 16 in Russian Federation.

Japan and Senegal face off against each other on Sunday knowing that the victor of this match will all but ensure qualification to the next round of the World Cup. "But as a countermeasure against Sadio Mane I think we did pretty well". "We need to completely reset coming into the next match", said Osako.

"It is possible to stop him but the trouble is that he has influence too on other players, and that is what we are concerned about". Honda came on the field a minute later and evened the score.

More news: England must be more clinical against Panama

While he is known for his quiet outward demeanor, the man of the match in Japan's win over the 10-man Colombians in Saransk has a powerful presence within the Samurai Blue squad, according to his teammates. Aliou Cisse's men played their usual game based on their pace and power but Akira Nishino's team never gave up and gave the continent much to cheer about with a superb battling display.

"Whether it's Sane or Koulibaly, they're great players. I have confidence. Our team has the quality to face Colombia", he added, looking forward to Thursday's meeting with the South Americans in Samara.

"Honestly we are all disappointed, there was a way to win and we did not do it", said Mane, who was only a sporadic danger down Senegal's left.

Inui then came agonisingly close to scoring his second of the game four minutes later when his wonderful curled effort from a surging break bounced off the crossbar.

Japan strike late to salvage draw with Senegal and keep qualification hopes alive. "We're going to try to manage this and extract the positive points to qualify for the last 16".
