Sadio Mane scores as Senegal held to World Cup draw

Japan pulled off the greatest offside trap in history against Senegal

Senegal's Sadio Mane, center, scores his side's opening goal past Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima, right, during the group H match between Japan and Senegal at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Yekaterinburg Arena in Yekaterinburg, Russia, on Sunday, June 24, 2018.

Senegal went ahead for the second time in the match when Moussa Wague drilled the ball into the top of the net on 71 minutes.

Inui, who was everywhere for Japan, scored Japan's first after some fine work by Yuto Nagatomo and veteran Honda proved a super sub when he equalized just six minutes after stepping onto the pitch.

Japan used its speed to control the middle of the field and open spaces in Senegal's defense, but they still couldn't stop the African team from taking the lead.

In the 72nd minute 19-year-old Moussa Wague put Senegal 2-1 ahead with a superb strike into the top corner for his first senior global goal.

Both teams now have four points from two games and have identical records atop the group.

A minute later, Nishino sent on Honda and striker Shinji Okazaki.

That would leave about $120 billion of imports available for retaliatory tariffs after Saturday's announcement. Those tariffs were matched by China's threat to penalize on US exports, a move that drew the president's ire.

Don't miss a moment of the World Cup! "He's a bit shy but he is a very good player", Southampton center back Maya Yoshida said. I felt we started the game well but then we let them back into it.

This is a team that had to deal with the turmoil of a coaching change two months before the start of the tournament, with the high-ups at the Japanese FA deciding that Vahid Halilhodzic was not the man to take their team into the tournament.

"Of course in the second half we wanted to win", Nishino told reporters.

But Japan were successful in keeping the 26-year-old more or less quiet after that and Cisse admitted that the Asian side deserved to win, even if they were twice behind. "But as a countermeasure against Sadio Mane I think we did pretty well".

Now Japan turn their attention to Poland in Volgograd on Thursday. "We're going to try to manage this and extract the positive points to qualify for the last 16".

The 28-year-old was bought in the offseason by Werder, a club which gained a high profile in Japan in the 1980s as the home of midfielder Yasuhiko Okudera, one of the first Japanese to have success Europe, and whose career also included a stint with Koln.
