What to expect in tonight’s World Cup matches

Africa’s last hope of having a team qualify for the round of 16 will either be accomplished or fail today.

Japan plays against Poland and Senegal takes on Colombia at 4pm. Then Panama plays Tunisia and England plays Belgium at 8pm.

Senegal impressed the world over with their 2–1 win against Poland and all they need is a draw against Colombia today to progress to the next stage.

And even if Senegal loses, if Poland secures a win against Japan, then it will be up to points difference whether Senegal or Japan progresses.

The evening matches may have less significance on the World Cup because Panama and Tunisia are already out, and England and Belgium are already through.

However, the winner between England and Belgium will play against the second finishers from group H (the teams in the afternoon matches) and the runner-up will play the winner from group H.
