Aliou Cisse's team finished with the same number of points, same goal difference and goals scored as their Asian rivals in Group H - the first three deciders of ranking in the pools.

Japan advanced to the last 16 of the World Cup in Russian Federation on Thursday despite a 1-0 defeat by Poland in their final match of the group phase.

Down to the final day of group play in the World Cup, things can get tricky in trying to determine which teams are moving on to the knockout stage, and which are going home.

Senegal will "have the whole continent behind them" when they look to become the only team from Africa to reach the World Cup knockout stage in Russian Federation, says defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

"We know we already have 15 million Senegalese behind us and now we have all the continent".

"We've worked a great deal, we're very committed and we want to be in the last 16". Yep, Senegal have been eliminated because they picked up more yellow cards that the Japanese.

He said: 'Deciding it on bookings is mad.

Japan, with 10 minutes to play of their final group game against Poland, appeared to have been made aware of the situation, after Yerry Mina headed Colombia ahead against Senegal. "It's hard to play well at the World Cup if you don't play with a lot of commitment", Cisse said.

"African football is making a lot of progress", Cisse said.

Senegal had been one of three teams to never have lost a group-stage match at the World Cup, along with Wales and East Germany, but saw that record ended against Colombia.
