The Japanese and Polish national teams are playing their last group stage game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at Volgograd Arena in Volgograd.

The Japanese squad earlier defeated Colombia 2-1 and drew with Senegal 2-2, preserving their chances to qualify from Group H. Poland, however, has not been as successful — the team lost both its games: to Senegal 1-2 and to Colombia 0-3, failing to enter the knockout stage for sure.

Despite all the scoring chances, both teams failed to break the match open during the first time.

During th second time situation changed as Jan Bednarek scored the first goal of the game at 59th minute. Poland leads ober Japanese team 1-0.

​However, the score in the match between Senegal and Colombia might influence the outcome of the game.

​​The Japanese players didn't retaliate, so the game ended with the Polish team winning 1-0. However, Japan still advanced to the playoffs, knocking out Senegal because they have the same numer of points and goal difference, but received fewer yellow cards throughout the tournament.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russia.
