The former AC Milan forward scored in the 78th minute, knocking the ball past two defenders standing on the goal line, to give Japan a 2-2 draw with Senegal on Sunday at the World Cup.
Against Colombia, he was the one who both won the penalty, when his shot on goal was blocked illegally by Carlos Sanchez, and converted it. But despite that fact, we led twice and what's annoying for me is the two goals we conceded.
The strike made him Africa's youngest-ever goalscorer in the World Cup, and while Japan equalised to deny Senegal's hopes of progressing to the Last 16, Wague certainly announced himself on the global stage in some style. Japan too will be looking to qualify for the round of 16 for the third time in their history.
Inui, who was everywhere for Japan, scored Japan's first after some fine work by Yuto Nagatomo and veteran Honda proved a super sub when he equalized just six minutes after stepping onto the pitch.
Japan are unlikely to have a man advantage for a second straight match.
M'Baye Niang got Senegal's second goal on a massive blunder by the Polish goalkeeper. For example, there is every chance Germany and Brazil will be in the same half of the draw as the Group H runners-up.
Senegal were living dangerously towards the end, playing deep in their own half, but they managed to hold on for a precious point in Group H.
Senegal produced a powerful performance to see off Poland and the Lions of Teranga could be celebrating their first World Cup finals win against non-European opposition this weekend.

Japan regained composure and responded with a well-taken goal with their only shot on target in the opening period to level the score at 1-1. They controlled the ball for 62 percent of the possession. "We need to analyse this situation better".
After Senegal were pegged back twice by Japan, ESPN FC's Stevie Nicol questions whether they can resolve their defensive issues to advance from the group. This will likely end in a draw, but if anybody gets the late victor it will more likely be Senegal rather than Japan.
