We can 'fool' Senegal if we're crafty, says Japan's Honda

It's the first World Cup since 2006 for Poland, whose fans are likely to travel to Russian Federation in large numbers.

And although restricted to a substitute appearance so far in what is his third, and nearly certainly final campaign, the former AC Milan star has not given up on that unlikely dream becoming reality.

"It's possible to stop him, but he has an influence on the other players and that's what we are concerned about", Nishino said.

"Their speed and physical strength are something that I have expected, but (what stood out) are their discipline and strong defense as a team", said the Galatasaray defender.

The star did a live Q&A panel with Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, and it was there host Kevin Smith brought up the incident. Well, their fears were unfounded because for our money, Holland is the best Spider-Man of all time.

The country first qualified for the sport's marquee tournament in 1998 and hasn't missed a World Cup since, reaching the round of 16 in 2002 and 2010. The first member of Japan's royal family to visit Russian Federation in more than a century, Princess Hisako is likely again to attend Sunday's match.

The question is: can the Colombia captain shoulder the huge burden of relaunching Los Cafeteros (the Coffee Makers) following a shock 2-1 defeat to Japan that has made their final Group H games against Poland and Senegal must-win encounters?

"For the past several days, I have been telling my players to gain five centimetres and five kilograms but it failed, so we need other measures", he joked. We're much looking forward to the match, how we are going to beat them.

But the midfielder, known for his free kicks and versatility in attack that have helped him to 36 goals in 96 appearances including seven in Japan's qualifying campaign, nearly never made it to Russian Federation at all. Rodriguez, the top scorer at the 2014 World Cup in Colombia's surprising run to the quarter-finals, was used as a second-half substitute during the defeat by Japan after being hampered by a calf injury.

Simeone slams Argentia 'anarchy', takes jab at Messi
Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo has been the stand out player so far at the this summers World Cup in Russian Federation . Despite the uncertainty, Simeone said he had not given up hope that Argentina may yet survive into the knockout stage.

When he was sacked, the decision could not have come sooner for Honda. "That is my thinking and that is what I tell my players".

Japan and Senegal have joined the likes of Mexico, which upset Germany, and Iceland, which held Argentina to a 1-1 draw.

A string of disappointing results from matches in the lead-up to Russian Federation, including a 2-0 defeat to Ghana in Yokohama and a 2-0 defeat to Switzerland in Lucerne did not augur well for the 63-year-old Nishino, who led Gamba Osaka to the 2008 Asian Champions League. Japan scored the ensuing penalty to take a 1-0 lead and it stayed that way until the 39th minute before Juan Quintero equalized for Colombia.

"I made a mistake but what's wrong with that?"

While many supported Anushka for her efforts to keep the city clean, she was also criticized and slammed by many. Reports suggest the duo has not yet responded to the notice.

A similarly attritional contest could be on the cards on Sunday against the Central Americas who are making their World Cup debut. It's pretty nice, it's wonderful in fact. "Even if it is slightly risky, I want them attacking".
