Senegalese are ruled out due to the fair play and Japanesse are in, but it's hard to decide what violates more the fair play – yellow cards of Senegal or the collective refusal to play football at the end of the match from Japan side. #JPNPOL

Got to say I understand why Japan did what they did. They needed to avoid getting more Yellow Cards and risking conceding second place to Senegal.

Japan lost more than a match tonight: they've lost the support of neutrals, which may not mean much to the players but will be disappointing to watch over the lead-in to the Round of 16. Everyone disappointed with how tonight's match ended will pull for #ENG or #BEL.#JPNPOL

"That was embarrassing."#JPNPOL turned into "a farce"

That was the one thing that I didnt expect Japan to do in the World Cup.
I hate to say it, but that was unfair to Senegal, and I expected a lot better from Japan.

Hope japan get absolutely slaughtered in the next round. What a disgrace they are. Any good will they earned from that Colombia game has been lost after that embarrassment. #bbcworldcup #SENCOL #POLJPN

Wtf Japan is doing ? They don't want to win the game ? Hope Senegal scores, thats totally boring.

Fuck Japan. Hope they get destroyed in the round of 16. Boring as fuck football.
— Anton Chigurh (@Barnard__Tyler) June 28, 2018
Horrible to see from Japan…Passing it round the back when they're losing. Really hope England get them now. Feel sorry for Senegal
— Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) June 28, 2018
The last ten minutes of Japan/Poland showed SO MUCH LESS "fair play" than any yellow card. Football is unjust.
— John Green (@sportswithjohn) June 28, 2018
Japan, going through on fair play, with the most unsportsmanlike play of the whole tournament in the final minutes
— Rik Sharma (@riksharma_) June 28, 2018
Japan have done this for five minutes. Disqualification for me, Clive… pic.twitter.com/zOFqJYNsBg
— Jeff Livingstone (@IBWMJeff) June 28, 2018
Japan playing aggressively unaggressively right now to avoid yellows. This is insane.
— John Green (@sportswithjohn) June 28, 2018
Japan literally knocking the ball around at the back to hold on and go through on their discipline record. Crazy stuff!

Japan moving on by means of contrived bureaucracy, the most Japanese way possible.
— Jagger (@CamelCrushGals) June 28, 2018
Japan go through on “fair play” rules, having fixed the last 15 minutes of the game. Disgusting.
— Roger The Dodger (@reggibarbossa) June 28, 2018
As a Japanese, I’m so disappointed and embarrassed by that shitty decision and play by #Japan in the last group-stage game in #WorldCup2018. Shame on you, Japan. Seriously, you should give your seat to #Senegal

Japan advanced because of a fair play rule, but how can you regard their final 10 minutes vs Poland as FAIR PLAY? Absolutely disgraceful, as a professional football club, and as a nation.
— hcehce419 (@hcehce419) June 28, 2018
Japan passed the ball around the back for the final 10 minutes, knowing that they were through on yellow cards.
Hasebe came on and signalled to the other players to avoid bookings, and they didn’t even try to come back from 1-0 down against Poland. Embarrassing.
— Dan Critchlow (@afcDW) June 28, 2018
Japan should be dropped based on how the last minutes of that game was played. That’s not #FairPlay

FAIR PLAY 👉 ITS RIDICULOUS:
🇯🇵 JAPAN (4) 🔶 YELLOW CARD
🇸🇳 SENEGAL (6) 🔶 YELLOW CARD
— AbsaPrem (@PSL_TV) June 28, 2018
Japan played like them annoying dons on FIFA that start passing it around at the back after they score a jammy goal. Hope they get smacked up by England or Belgium for behaving like a bunch of pussies. Their Samurai ancestors would be disgusted by that cowardice.
— Tropicana Dan (@orangejuicecode) June 28, 2018
Japan qualified cuz Senegal had more yellows than them lmao that’s the mother of all ironies
— Firminion (@SG8_TheKop) June 28, 2018
Talking about fair play, Senegal got knocked out because of more yellow cards (6) than Japan (4). Yellow card is part of the game.
How about play the ball to waste time? This isnt part of the game. This is not a fair play pic.twitter.com/U7nmOPTRBD
— Alamin_Azahar (@AlaminAzahar94) June 28, 2018
Absolutely shocking what Japan 🇯🇵 did in the last 15 minutes of the game.
Just passing the ball around at the back.
Poland 🇵🇱 just as bad for allowing it.

Laurent Blanc hits out at #SEN elimination on fair play rule to #JPN on RMC: “I don’t want to be that guy, but Japan had way more yellows than Senegal. They started with 11 of them on the pitch against Poland” pic.twitter.com/YLp5wwLqKM

You can't let Japan go through on fairplay based on the last 10 minutes from Poland and Japan. That's not fairplay.

Supremely strange from Japan as they make six changes and then play out the last 10 mins as a farce despite losing to Poland, eventually sneaking through on fair play.

WHAT JAPAN AND POLAND DID AT THE END OF THE GAME SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN FOOTBALL!!! MAKES ME SICK!!! DISGRACEFUL SMH!!!!!!

In short, it’d be a harakiri moment for samurais. But don’t worry. They are totally different kind of weirdos:
May look like a good behaviour. But weirdo is weirdo anyways.
