Bitter pill to swallow for the Senegalese after allowing Japan to get back into the match on two occasions.
However, an entertaining clash leaves both sides with a point and a fair result to say the least.
Japan deserves the credit for their relentlessness.
The result sees Senegal go into their final match against Colombia needing a win for a slot into World Cup last 16. Same process for Japan against Poland.
Next up, Colombia and Poland clash at 20:00!
