The Group H of the FIFA World Cup is exposed after Japan and Senegal earned amazement wins against the two pre-competition top picks to top the gathering. 

The most amazing is obviously Japan's 2-1 win against Colombia. The South Americans have just themselves to fault and Carlos Sanchez specifically for surrendering a punishment for consider handball 3 minutes from commence and gaining a sent-off. 

Shinji Kagawa changed over from the spot and Colombia evened out through a cunning freekick from Carlos Quintero before Osako's 73rd moment header finishes a striking triumph for the Japanese side. 

Records broken as this Japan turn into the principal Asian side to crush a South American group at the FIFA World Cup. This is likewise their win at the competition in European soil. 

At the point when each other African side were experiencing difficulty, Senegal stood up and sacked an unequivocal win against the gathering top picks Poland. It was a merited win for the Lions of Teranga in spite of their dubious second goal.

Japan vs Senegal Head-to-head 

The solitary gathering between the two sides go back to a cordial in 2003, won by Japan 1-0. 

Japan vs Senegal Prediction 

The two sides will be exceptionally energetic after their particular shows in the opening session of the competition. 

With three focuses in their sack, the weight is to some degree less and in this way either sides can play some free streaming football, that both are prepared to do. 

Japan are a side that scored 11 goals from 9 friendlies before the World Cup, while Senegal were more cautious amid that period, yet with Liverpool's Sadio Mane on their positions, one must anticipate that them will open up any back-line. 

Neither of their safeguards are especially sterile and this is the reason we expect an open amusement at the Yekaterinburg. 

To aggregate up, I don't see an unmistakable champ in this diversion, yet both side are required to run for the win with a troublesome adversary to come in the last gathering amusement.
