1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 B team v B team
gunpowder held in reserve
no fireworx

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 the counting of cards
elimination ensues
galling Senegal



Thursday 28th June 2018

Group F
England 0-1 Belgium
Panama 1-2 Tunisia

B team v B team?
England and Belgium fielded mostly reserves.

England finish 2nd to Belgium – and now supposedly in the easier half of the draw?!?!?!?

Only Spain of the so-called Big Boys to contend with?!?!?

Group H

Japan 0-1 Poland
Senegal 0-1 Colombia

So Senegal finish level with Japan, on points, goal difference, goals scored and their own drawn game.

Japan place higher in the table based on Fair Play, i.e. the number of red and yellow cards conceded in the group stages!
