England destroyed Panama 6-1 on Sunday, and the win clinches a spot in the round of 16 for the Three Lions and Belgium, which crushed Tunisia 5-2 on Saturday.

England opened in Russian Federation with a 2-1 victory over Tunisia on Monday, Kane scoring twice including the victor in injury time to give Gareth Southgate's side a precious three points.

However, Cisse, who looks good to replicate Keshi's round of 16 feat at the World Cup, has chosen to downplay the debate and insists there is nothing significant about the black coach missing out on the spotlight of the Mundial.

Equally, Mane said, it would be a mistake to focus on any individual in the Japanese team.

"Today, we are in a situation in which we are forced to win".

England and Panama have a 3:00 pm kick-off (1200 GMT) in Nizhny Novgorod meaning players could struggle in temperatures topping 30°C.

Japan and Senegal go into their final group matches on four points ahead of Colombia, who have three after eliminating Poland with a 3-0 win on Sunday.

Spain and Portugal are locked level at the top of Group B going into their final matches against Morocco and Iran respectively and Fernando Hierro and Fernando Santos will also be fielding questions from their country's journalists this weekend.

After missing out on the World Cup four years ago because of an injury, Radamel Falcao is now in danger of being out of title contention after only two matches at the sport's marquee tournament.

After they both won their first game, the victor of Japan v Senegal can plant one foot firmly in the last 16, and that would be a decent enough achievement in itself. But more importantly, if their pre-game warmup dances tell us anything, they seem to be having the most fun.


The other two were penalties, but it didn't matter that his goals weren't vintage.

"Something like this can be a big moment in the tournament".

Japan and Senegal meet in the second match, each coming into the game on the back of a 2-1 win and co-leading Group H.

The only player on either side who will definitely miss out at this stage is Sanchez through suspension.

"We are not fearful of Senegal at all", he said.

"We need to be able to play to our full potential rather than being reactive to the opposition's strength", Nishino said. "If we have to defend, and that means then we're going to win, then we defend". With Japan and Senegal both winning their opening games, victory for either would virtually seal a place in the last 16 in Russian Federation.

While the squad lacks the star power of many other World Cup teams, Japan can count on a group of reliable players with plenty of European experience. "All we need to do is show it again".

The eighth-ranked Poles are desperate for a result in the Group H clash in Kazan on Sunday, having given up two goals from bad defensive errors to lose 2-1 to the African side. Poland was let down by its defense in the opener against Senegal. The princess spoke with squad members and posed for a photo with the senior national side, as well as the Japan under-19 players now attending the camp.

"His appearance off the bench last time out gave him some confidence", Pekerman said.
