Federation Internationale de Football Association to review yellow card World Cup tiebreaker

Thibaut Courtois

Although Japan ran the risk of Senegal scoring in their match, no goal materialised and Japan advanced to the round of 16 in spite of their poor sportsmanship. However, the South American nation was set to progress as group runners owing to better superior goal difference over Japan.

Federation Internationale de Football Association plans to review a rule that resulted in Senegal being eliminated from the World Cup because it had more yellow cards than Japan, but is unlikely to remove the measure. "The squad has the potential for the next World Cup". We'll be at the biggest events bringing you exclusive features and the best interviews.

Senegal coach Aliou Cisse said he "accepted the rules of the game" as the West Africans were eliminated from the World Cup due to a worse disciplinary record than their direct rivals for a place in the last 16.

"If we really want to make the continent proud through our style of play, I think we must look at developing the grass root and do away with our over dependence on foreign base players, who have already being moulded and turn into roles that makes it hard for them to give out their best".

"This is the first time (the fair play rule) has been used in a senior World Cup in this way".

Belgium will be favourites to beat Japan but will be aware that should they see off the Samurai Blue a tough quarter-final against either Brazil or Mexico awaits. "It was incredible to be in this situation and hard for a team to take on", he said. They have a very good coach who has very good young talented players like Wague, Balde, Kouyate, Mane, Sabaly, Ndiaye, Coulibaly and Ismaila. It was back to back achievement for Renard and when Morocco roped him in, all eyes were on him.

Football fans in Ebonyi on Friday called on African countries to boycott subsequent World Cup competitions in resentment to the manner its representatives exited the "Russia 2018" edition.

And that has suddenly jerked up Malawians because the Flames date the Atlas Lions for the 2022 World Cup qualifier just this September.
