Kick-off: 6.00pm local Senegal v Colombia was Match 48 of the FIFA World Cup 2018 Refereeing team: Referee: Milorad Mažić (Serbia) Assistant Referee 1: Milovan Ristić (Serbia) Assistant Referee 2: Dalibor Djurdjević (Serbia) Fourth Official: Bamlak Thessema (Ethiopia) Reserve AR: Hasan Al-Mahri (United Arab Emirates) VAR: Danny Makkelie (Netherlands) Senegal became the first nation in the history of the World Cup finals to fail to progress out of the group stages on the fair play rule. Although they had identical records in their three group games, Japan progressed to the round of 16 at the expense of Senegal due to their superior fair play record (Japan were shown a total of three yellow cards in their three games compared to Senegal's five). For the first time since the introduction of the round of 16 in 1986, there would now be no African nations present in the last 16 at this World Cup finals. Senegal became the third team to be eliminated from this World Cup finals despite winning their opening game of the tournament (also Iran and Serbia). It was the first time since 2002 that as many as three teams failed to get through the group stages despite winning their first game (Argentina, Costa Rica and Russia). Colombia had now progressed beyond the World Cup finals group stages for the third time (also in 1990 and 2014). Colombia became the only nation to reach the knock-out stages of this World Cup finals despite losing their opening game.
