Japan advances on yellow cards despite losing at World Cup
Updated : June 29, 2018 12:05 AM IST
The Japanese players slowed play down to almost nothing, softly passing the ball back and forth in little triangles in their own end to waste time.
Both Japan and Senegal finished the group phase with four points, had the same goal difference and the same amount of goals scored.
Overall, Japan committed only 28 fouls in three group matches, among the fewest in the tournament. Senegal committed 44 fouls.
