Football fans call on Africa to boycott World Cup

Senegal became the final team to be eliminated from the group stage of the 2018 World Cup on Thursday, and it happened in the most gut-wrenching fashion imaginable.

Japan finished level with Senegal on four points and with identical goal difference but with a better disciplinary record.

Malawi national football team continue to fail to qualify for their first-ever FIFA World Cup finals but even for all this disappointment, Malawian fans always rally behind all the African representatives and it was the same for this edition through Nigeria, Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia and Senegal. "We will see what the feedback is, what the situation is but as it now stands we don't see any need to change the rule that's been put in place".

"We hope that James is not very serious and that he can be with us as soon as possible for what he means", the Arsenal goalkeeper told reporters.

Colombia topped their group by beating Poland and Senegal despite losing to Japan in their opener.

Nishino praised his players for doing what was needed to clinch qualification for the knockout stage despite going against the attacking philosophy they had established in Japan's earlier 2-1 win over Colombia and 2-2 draw with Senegal. "The squad has the potential for the next World Cup". Japan collected four. Both teams amassed four points and a goal aggregate of 4-4.

But he said he could not really have instructed them to avoid drawing yellow cards. We have fewer points in fair play and Senegal has not qualified because we don't deserve it.

The Samurai Blue advanced to the round of 16 at the expense of the Senegalese as a result, and Cisse said it was something he and his team would have to accept.

"What do we want to do in the next World Cup?"

When asked if Rodriguez's injury was related to the calf problem that ruled him out of the Japan game, the Colombia boss said: 'At the moment we do not have information, I can't confirm or deny.

The elimination of Germany in the first round and several teams failing to shine has left the World Cup wide open. "These incidents (Rodriguez injury) can give you a very hard time so what we did was very extraordinary, especially when you think about the team we were playing".
