“Of course we are sorry we did not win. But I can say that we did not play as well as against Poland, but despite it we managed to score twice. I’m disappointed that we conceded twice today. The game with Colombia comes soon, so we will be focusing on the next game now,” Cisse told journalists at the post-match press conference.

Senegal and Japan are currently top of Group H with four points. Cisse's team is set to play against Colombia in Samara on Thursday in their final group H game.
