    Matchday 2 FT Scores: June 23, 2018

    From FIFA.com

    Group F
    There's going to be madness on Wednesday in Group F action at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

    All four teams are still alive heading into the third and final group stage matchday on Wednesday.

    Two-time FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Mexico moved one step closer towards clinching a spot in the Round of 16 with a 2-1 victory over 2002 FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers South Korea inside Rostov Arena.

    El Tri drew first blood in the 26th minute as they were awarded a penalty when FC Tokyo central defender Jang Hyun-soo blocked a cross while in the area.

    Los Angeles FC forward Carlos Vela converted the spot kick to give Mexico a 1-0 lead.

    West Ham United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez doubled Mexico's lead in the 66th minute following a fast break as the hero of Mexico's 1-0 win over Germany, PSV winger Hirving Lozano, provided the assist while on a 3-on-2.

    The Taeguk Warriors did get a goal at stoppage time as Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min got one past Guillermo Ochoa, spoiling Standard Liege's goalkeeper's bid for a second consecutive clean sheet of the tournament.

    Ochoa had five saves in the victory.

    South Korea 1:2 (0:1) Mexico
    BB55's Man of the Match: Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez

    Meanwhile in Sochi's Fisht Olympic Stadium, the four-time and defending FIFA World Cup champions Germany rallied to stay alive in the tournament after edging 1958 FIFA World Cup runners-up Sweden 2-1.

    It started badly for Joachim Loew and the Die Mannschaft as Bayern Munich central midfielder Sebastian Rudy had to leave the game due to injury.

    The Blagult struck first in the 32nd minute as Real Madrid playmaker Toni Kroos had a cheap giveaway up the middle and Krasnodar playmaker Viktor Claesson finds Toulouse attacking midfielder/striker Ola Toivonen who buried it past Bayern Munich and German captain goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to give Sweden a 1-0 lead at halftime.

    Loew decided to make a change and put in VfB Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez into the game to start the second half.

    The move paid dividends as Gomez had an assist on Germany's first goal of the tournament when Borussia Dortmund versatile player Marco Reus equalized in the 48th minute.

    However, Germany were down to 10 men with eight minutes to play as Bayern Munich versatile defender Jerome Boateng picked up his second yellow card for a terrible foul on Al Ain striker Marcus Berg.

    Boateng had his first caution after a terrible foul on RB Leipzig winger Emil Forsberg. Boateng will also miss Germany's finale against South Korea.

    But Die Mannschaft grabbed the full three points on the last shot of the game.

    RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner won a free kick on the edge of the box and Kroos made amends for his first half turnover with the game-winning free kick at the top right-hand corner.

    Janne Andersson and the Swedish bench were furious at Polish referee Szymon Marciniak and his staff for questionable decisions throughout the match to no avail.

    Germany 2:1 (0:1) Sweden
    BB55's Man of the Match: Marco Reus, Germany

    With one match to go, Mexico is on top of Group F with six points and a +2 goal differential while Germany and Sweden are tied for second place with three points and a even goal differential with Germany having the head-to-head edge over Sweden and South Korea is still alive despite losing two games and having no points and a -2 goal difference.

    Group G
    1986 FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers Belgium put Tunisia on the brink of elimination after a 5-2 romp inside Moscow's Otkritie Arena.

    The Red Devils drew first blood six minutes in when Eden Hazard won and scored a penalty after Kasimpasa center half-back Syam Ben Youssef toppled the Chelsea and Belgian captain playmaker in the area.

    Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku made it 2-0 Belgium in the 16th minute as he slots home Napoli forward Dries Mertens's pass following a fast break.

    The Eagles of Carthage got one back in the 18th minute as Gent right back Dylan Bronn headed in Stade Rennes, on loan from Sunderland, and Tunisian captain central forward Wahbi Khazri's set piece into the back of the net.

    But Lukaku grabbed a brace before halftime to give Belgium a 3-1 lead.

    Hazard also completed his double in the 51st minute to give Belgium a 4-1 lead.

    Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi came off the bench and scored Belgium's fifth in the 90th minute before Tunisia struck on the last kick of the game from Khazri.

    Khazri had a goal and assist and Al-Shabab Farouk Ben Mustapha had six saves in his first start of the tournament. Both performances were in losing efforts.

    Tunisia will have to await the result of the England-Panama match on Sunday to see if they're still alive in the tournament.

    If England at least avoids defeat against Panama, Tunisia is out. If Panama wins, Tunisia is still in.

    Belgium 5:2 (3:1) Tunisia

    It's either get at least a point or go home for FIFA World Cup debutante Panama as they take on Harry Kane and England.

    England can join Belgium in the Round of 16 from Group G with a win.

    Tunisia is biting their nails as they watch this match to see if they're still in the tournament.

    Meanwhile in the other Group H match, Poland and Colombia battle it out to see who will stay alive in the tournament.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Group Stages

    Matchday 2 FT Scores: June 24, 2018

    From FIFA.com

    Group G
    1966 FIFA World Cup champions England join 1986 FIFA World Cup Fourth Place finishers Belgium in the Round of 16 after thrashing and eliminating FIFA World Cup debutante Panama 6-1 inside Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

    The Three Lions had a five-goal onslaught on Los Canaleros in the first half.

    Manchester City center half-back John Stones had a brace in the eighth and 40th minutes with headers off set pieces and Tottenham Hotspur and English captain striker Harry Kane added a double from the penalty spot.

    Kane's first penalty conversion came in the 22nd minute after New York Red Bulls, on loan from Sporting San Miguelito, central defender Fidel Escobar hauled down Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard in the area.

    Kane's second penalty conversion came before halftime after New York Red Bulls right back Michael Amir Murillo hauled Stones down in the area.

    Murillo will miss Panama's finale against fellow eliminated Tunisia due to yellow card accumulation.

    Universidad de Chile central midfielder Armando Cooper is also suspended for Panama's next match against Tunisia due to yellow card accumulation after being booked against England.

    Lingard completed the five-goal barrage in the 36th minute after tucking home Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling's pass.

    In the second half, Kane completed his hat trick in the 62nd minute.

    Kane has five goals in the tournament.

    Panama did get a consolation goal in the 78th minute as Municipal defender Felipe Baloy came off the bench and scored the Canalmen's first ever FIFA World Cup goal.

    England are tied with Belgium for top spot in Group E with six points, +6 overall goal differential and eight goals scored each before those two tangle on Thursday to see who wins Group G. England has the fair play edge over Belgium with one less yellow card, 2-3.

    For Panama, both them and Tunisia are playing for pride in their final matchday on Thursday.

    England 6:1 (5:0) Panama
    BB55's Man of the Match: Harry Kane, England

    Group H
    It will be a three-team race for two spots in Group H on the final matchday on Thursday.

    Two-time FIFA World Cup Round of 16 finishers Japan and 2002 FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Senegal are two of the three contenders after they played to a 2-2 stalemate inside Yekaterinburg's Central Stadium.

    The Lions of Teranga surfaced first in the 11th minute as the Japanese had a couple of silly errors on defense.

    Hannover 96 right winger Genki Haraguchi failed to clear a cross as he heads it into the path of Bordeaux right back Youssouf Sabaly who fired a shot towards goal.

    FC Metz goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima tried to punch clear of Sabaly's shot, but it ricochets in front of Liverpool and Senegalese striker Sadio Mane who tucked it home from point blank range to give Senegal a 1-0 lead.

    The Samurai Blue responded with a 34th minute equalizer as Galatarsaray left back Yuto Nagatomo collected a pass over the top and found Real Betis left winger Takashi Inui who curled his shot past a couple of Senegal defenders and into the back of the net to make it 1-1 at halftime.

    Senegal retook the lead in the 71st minute as K.A.S. Eupen left back Moussa Wague poked in Torino, on loan from AC Milan, central forward M'Baye Niang's pass into the back of the net as the Lions of Teranga led 2-1.

    But Japan made it Desmond 2-2 in the 78th minute as Horoya AC goalkeeper Khadim N'Diaye misread and failed to clear FC Cologne forward Yuya Osako's cross in the box and left himself in no man's land as Inui found Pachuca versatile player Keisuke Honda who struck with the goalkeeper way off his line.

    Kawashima made up for his error in the first goal of the game by making five saves.

    Japan and Senegal are tied for first with four points and +1 goal differential each with one game to go.

    Japan 2:2 (1:1) Senegal
    BB55's Man of the Match: Takashi Inui, Japan

    However, 2014 FIFA World Cup Quarterfinalists Colombia are lurking in third place with three points after whitewashing and eliminating two-time FIFA World Cup Third Place finishers Poland 3-0 inside Kazan Arena.

    It started badly for Los Cafeteros as Jose Pekerman was forced to make an early substitution when Deportivo Cali midfielder Abel Aguilar had to leave the game in the 32nd minute due to injury.

    But Bayern Munich playmaker James Rodriguez gave Colombian fans something to smile about in the 40th minute as he assisted on FC Barcelona central defender Yerry Mina's header off a corner.

    AS Monaco and Colombian captain striker Radamel Falcao made it 2-0 in the 70th minute after finishing with aplumb after a tic-tac-toe passing play.

    James recorded his second assist of the game setting up a fast break and Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado put the cherry on top in the 75th minute.

    Poland hasn't made the knockout stages since 1986 and Bayern Munich and Polish captain striker Robert Lewandowski continues to be frustrated as his team is out of the tournament.

    Poland 0:3 (0:1) Colombia
    BB55's Man of the Match: James Rodriguez, Colombia

    3 Serbia 2 1 0 1 2 2 0 3
    4 Costa Rica 2 0 0 2 0 3 −3 0

    GROUP E

    - Brazil need a point against Serbia to guarantee their place, and will also go through in second with a defeat if Switzerland also lose by the same margin or greater.
    - Switzerland need a point against Costa Rica to secure their place but will also go through with a defeat if Serbia lose to Brazil. Should Switzerland lose by one goal and Serbia draw, it will go to goals scored. If the teams finish with identical records, then Switzerland would go through on head-to-head. If Switzerland are beaten by two goals, they can qualify only if Serbia lose.
    - If both Brazil and Switzerland win or lose, they might need to be separated by disciplinary record or drawing of lots for top spot or second as the head-to-head is 1-1. This would happen, for instance, if Brazil won 2-1 and Switzerland won 2-0 for top spot, or for second position if Brazil lost 2-0 and Switzerland lost 1-0.
    - Current yellow cards: Brazil 3, Switzerland 4
    - Serbia will definitely qualify with a win, and could go through with a draw as noted.
    - Costa Rica have been eliminated.

    4 South Korea 2 0 0 2 1 3 −2 0

    Note:
    - Head-to-head points: Germany 3, Sweden 0

    GROUP F

    - Mexico need a point vs. Sweden to go through and top the group. They are definitely through with a defeat if Germany fail to win.
    - Sweden are guaranteed to qualify if they win or better Germany's result. If they beat Mexico and Germany fail to win, Sweden will top the group.
    - Germany must win by two or more goals or better Sweden's result to guarantee qualifying.
    - If both Germany and Sweden draw, the team in the higher-scoring game will finish second. If both draws are the same scoreline, Germany finish second on head-to-head.
    - South Korea must beat Germany and hope Sweden lose to Mexico to have a chance of qualifying.

    THREE-WAY TIE FOR FIRST AND SECOND
    - If Sweden and Germany win, they will finish level on six points with Mexico, and it will first come down to goal difference.
    - Sweden are guaranteed to qualify in all scenarios.
    - Germany are guaranteed to qualify if they win by two goals.
    - Mexico can only qualify if both games are won by one goal, and Mexico's game is either higher scoring or both the same score one-goal margin apart from 1-0
    - If Sweden win by two or more goals, they are through, and that would mean Germany are guaranteed to qualify with any win (Mexico out).
    - If Germany win by two or more goals they are through, with Sweden through with any win (Mexico out).
    - If both Germany and Sweden win 1-0, the three teams would have identical records and it would go to head-to-head mini-league, and this would see Germany and Sweden through on goals scored. Mexico would be out by virtue of scoring one fewer goal in games between the three countries. First and second would be decided on Fair Play and at present Sweden's score is -3 and Germany's -5, so Sweden would finish top. Obviously this could change on the final matchday.
    - If both Germany and Sweden win 2-1, then Sweden would win the group on head-to-head goals scored (they would have three goals in games between the three countries to Germany and Mexico's two). Second and third would be decided by Fair Play, and at present Mexico's score is -2 and Germany's -5 (Jerome Boateng's red card worth -3 the difference). Each yellow card is worth -1 so Mexico would be through unless they have several players booked or someone sent off compared to Germany.
    - If both Germany and Sweden win 3-2 (or any higher one-goal identical margin of victory), then Sweden would win the group with Mexico second and Germany third on head-to-head mini-league goals scored.
    - The only other way Mexico can go through, at the expense of Germany, if is both games are won by one goal, but Mexico's defeat against Sweden is a higher-scoring game.
    - If Sweden win by one goal, and Germany win by one goal but in a higher-scoring game, Germany win the group with Sweden in second and Mexico out

    THREE-WAY TIE FOR SECOND
    - If South Korea win and Sweden lose there will be a three-way tie for second on three points for Germany, Sweden and South Korea. It will first come down to goal difference.
    - If South Korea beat Germany by two goals, they are guaranteed to finish second
    - If South Korea beat Germany 1-0 and Sweden lose 1-0 to Mexico, it will come down to Fair Play between Germany and Sweden with South Korea out on head-to-head goals scored. At present Sweden's score is -3 and Germany's -5, so Sweden best placed for second though that will change.
    - If both games are won by the same one-goal margin other than 1-0, then Germany finish second on head-to-head goals scored.
    - If South Korea beat Germany by a higher-scoring one-goal margin than Sweden lose to Mexico by, then South Korea would finish second on direct head-to-head against Germany with Sweden bottom.
    - If Sweden lose to Mexico by a higher-scoring one-goal margin than South Korea beat Germany, then Sweden would finish second on goals scored.
    - If Sweden lose by more than one goal, they cannot qualify, and South Korea would therefore finish second with any victory

    - Fair Play is currently Japan -3, Senegal -5, so the Asian side has the edge at the moment.
    - Poland have been eliminated.
