Lukaku celebrates after scoring against Tunisia at the World Cup

"We know that any team that reaches the last 16 is good, we are talking about the best 16 teams in the world", he added.

When asked if Rodriguez had suffered a fresh injury, Pekerman said: "At the moment we don't have information, I can't confirm or deny".

Later, May came back to Michel to offer the England shirt, saying it was "the equalizer", Downing St. said.

England managed only two shots on goal and earned just 47 percent of possession.

The result means England will face a tougher test in the round of 16 against Colombia, rather than Japan, but the rest of the knockout-stage draw is a significantly easier path, with the winners of Sweden and Switzerland awaiting in the quarterfinals should the Three Lions advance.

Tunisia will return home from Russian Federation with points in its bag.

Fakhreddine Ben Youssef's goal for Tunisia was the 2500th scored in World Cup finals history.

Poland has already been eliminated from the World Cup.

England made eight changes to the team after beating Panama 6-1 in their previous game. He was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with an 8.0 rating.

Starting with arguably the biggest name in the list of group stage exits are the defending champions Germany.

"Tomorrow when we get onto the pitch, the instructions to the players will be to play to win", said Cisse, with Senegal trailing group leaders Japan only on disciplinary record.

"It's the law of football, the law of fair play, and we had less points in that aspect and we have to accept it". At that time, Colombia and Senegal were 0-0. "So I'm embarrassed by the way they were happy to just accept the loss", said Makiko Totsuka, a 30-year-old musician who watched with her friends in a bar.

Colombia saw off the challenge of Senegal but might have gone behind early on when the African team thought they had won a penalty.

M'Baye Niang was the only Senegal player cautioned in a decisive 1-0 defeat to Colombia in Samara, where Barcelona defender Yerry Mina headed the south Americans' victor on 77 minutes.

Villain The closing stages of the Japan vs. Poland game saw the quite weird spectacle of a side trying to lose. Japan collected four. Both teams amassed four points and a goal aggregate of 4-4.

The Colombia defender scored Group H's decisive goal and takes home MOTM honors.

He tweeted: "Going out on the basis of fair play is harsh!"

Yerry Mina's second-half header sent Colombia into a potential last-16 tie with England at the World Cup at the expense of Senegal, who lost out to Japan having received more yellow cards.

German media have given a damning verdict of the campaign, which will be remembered as the first time since 1938 that the country has failed to make it past the first round. This tiebreaker is making its debut at the 2018 World Cup.
