Russian Federation 2018, Group H

24 June 2018

Booking their ticket to the second round with a game to spare would be a welcome achievement for England, who were eliminated after only two games in a disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign. Switzerland's 2-1 victory over Serbia on Friday was the first game to see a side come from behind to win.

The 29-year-old striker has averaged nearly a goal a game for Bayern in the past three seasons, and 57 percent of Poland's goals in World Cup qualifying came from the Warsaw native.

England and Panama have a 3:00 pm kick-off (1200 GMT) in Nizhny Novgorod meaning players could struggle in temperatures topping 30°C.

After all the furore about Southgate's line-up being leaked by the media earlier in the week, reports on Sunday suggest Raheem Sterling will keep his place in the side, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek coming in to replace the injured Dele Alli. If that happens England would face the victor of what will likely be Mexico vs. Switzerland in a quarterfinal, if they make it past Group H's top team in their last 16 clash.

N. Korea still poses N-threat
Repeating North Korean arguments, Trump said the games were "provocative" to Pyongyang and added that they were "very expensive". The repatriation will mark the first step to be implemented under the agreement reached during last week's U.S.

But they are not out of the woods yet - to have a chance of becoming the first team to successfully defend the title since Brazil in 1962, Germany must beat South Korea by a two-goal margin in Kazan on Wednesday.

"We are taking from that match what makes us stronger", Falcao said.

"Something like this can be a big moment in the tournament".

"Even if we lose against Senegal, I know how to avoid the pressure and how to prepare for Poland".

While Japan and Senegal, who won their first matches, meet in Ekaterinburg, favourites Poland and Colombia, who were stunned in their tournament openers, will battle it out in Kazan.

Sarri set to raid Napoli after Chelsea appointment
Chelsea could have to pay £4.5m if they were to employ Sarri before July 1 but that figure would go up to £7m after that date. The coach is known to be a master tactician and would also work well within the structure of the club's transfer policy.

There has also been a significant shift in the balance of power in African football with three North African teams - Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco - making the pilgrimage to the World Cup finals in Russian Federation while only two Sub-Saharan countries - Nigeria and Senegal - made the trip. The African side got off to a fast start, scoring 11 minutes in thanks to a fortunate bounce off Sadio Mane. "It is not just Yoshida, but all the players - we are giving them information about Mane, though I am sure he will be in some duels with Mane", Nishino said. "He contributes a lot to the team and hopefully he can have a performance (against Senegal) like the one he gave against Colombia".

"First time in a long time since we've seen a hat-trick from England player in the World Cup, absolutely delighted for Harry and the team", tweeted Hurst. "Once the game starts, we need to be completely focused on getting three points. Even if it is slightly risky we want to attack and try to win".

Japan will next face Poland in Volgograd on Thursday while Senegal faces Colombia in Samara.

It took a 4-2 win over Paraguay in Innsbruck, Japan's final friendly before Russian Federation, to restore a degree of faith in the Blue Samurai.
