KXIP vs KKR Live Score

After starting Russian Federation 2018 with five representatives from the continent, Tunisia, Egypt, Morroco, and Nigeria have all suffered elimination at the first round.

Japan advanced to the last 16 of the World Cup in Russian Federation on Thursday despite a 1-0 defeat by Poland in their final match of the group phase.

"It's up to us to make them proud, to fly the flag for Senegal and Africa at this World Cup", he told reporters, as quoted by BBC Football.

Japan lost their final game of the tournament to already-eliminated Poland, although a late victor for Colombia over Senegal ensured the Asian nation progressed on the basis that they had picked up fewer yellow cards than Senegal over the course of the tournament. It's a sad for us but we knew these were the regulations. They're all going to support us.

Morocco's only Group B point came in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Spain, while Nigeria beat Iceland but lost to Croatia and Argentina in Group D.

Egypt failed to pick up a point in three games Group A, while Tunisia, who face Panama on Thursday, have lost their first two games and can not advance from Group G. "We will not give up and I think there will be great things in the future".

With the tiebreaker, Colombia and Japan advanced to the round of 16 with Colombia winning Group H.

Senegal have been eliminated from the World Cup in one of the harshest ways possible - and BBC commentator Mark Lawrenson is unimpressed.

Cameroon (1990), Senegal (2002) and Ghana (2010) all reached the quarter-finals.
