    Karwolo Kamei: Hopefully Poland beats Colombia. That'd be the best result for Senegal.

    Geo: Cracking World Cup it just keeps getting better. Quality football and another great game Japan v Senegal. Looking forward to Colombia v Poland.

    Senegal have still never lost a World Cup group game. No team have played in as many (five) without being beaten.

    Kobby Asenso Brobbey: Senegal is a useless team. Atrocious defending and tactics. Why cross so much on the floor when you have taller players in the box? Why bench Balde, Sow, Kouyate etc in such an open game. Madness.

    Darren: Entertaining game of football. How much a difference a game makes when both teams play an attacking game. That's what the World Cup is about for me.

  5. 'Both teams happy with a point'

    Phil Neville

    Former England & Man Utd defender on BBC One

    Here's what P-Nev thought of the football...

    Both teams will be happy with a point. If they draw their last games they are both through. I thought Japan were fantastic in the second half.

    Phil Neville is getting grief for not liking the sip of mate tea he had. He's allowed to not like the taste of a drink!

  7. Post update

    Some of the tweets on that topic are making me laugh but I probably can't use them here.

  8. Post update

    Phil Neville has just called the drink "disgusting". Scenes.

  9. Post update

    West Ham's Argentine defender Pablo Zabaleta is now showing us how to make popular South American drink yerba mate on BBC One.

    He's actually making it live on TV. Didier Drogba is trying it. He's enjoying it. What a world.

    Japan 2-2 Senegal

    Japan v Colombia

    If Poland and Colombia draw their match at 19:00 BST and then win their final games against Japan and Senegal respectively, we will have a four-way tie on four points - and it would come down to goal difference (or goals scored, or fair play).

    But if there's a winner in tonight's game, then the loser will be out.

    Japan and Senegal both know a point in their final games will be enough, regardless of that result tonight.

    Rich: Plenty of wide open groups left after the 2nd game... Should hopefully make for some great 3rd round matches with everything to play for

    Darren: Entertaining game of football how much a difference a game makes when both teams play a attacking game that's what the world cup is about for me

    Lee: Really good and entertaining game that!! Credit to both teams

  12. 'Difficult to win games with mistakes like this'

    Japan 2-2 Senergal

    Didier Drogba

    Phoenix Rising and former Ivory Coast striker on BBC One

    On Japan's equaliser: It is a goalkeeping mistake as he does not read the trajectory of the ball. I am disappointed, it is two mistakes. It is difficult to win games with mistakes like this.

    England will play one of the teams from this group. But we're no closer to knowing which one.

    If England beat Belgium (or finish top of the group with a draw depending on yellow cards), they will play the team second in this group. Otherwise, they will play the team who top this group.

    Which could be any of Japan, Senegal, Colombia or Poland.

  15. 'Neither team deserved to lose'

    Japan 2-2 Senegal

    Leon Osman

    Former Everton midfielder on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Neither team deserved to lose and they have both played well. Defensively I think they are both pretty weak, but either side are dangerous in attack. It is probably the closest group out of all of them.

    Pablo Zabaleta

    West Ham and ex-Argentina defender on BBC One

    The second half was much better. Japan were much better in the second half and missed a couple of chances.

  17. Post update

    Japan 2-2 Senegal

    One of the best games of the group stages so far, but both sides look quite disappointed. A win would have taken either side to six points and probably a spot in the last-16.

    They could both conceivably go out if all four sides end on four points.
