Idrissa Gueye's World Cup adventure is over after Senegal were eliminated at the group phase by the finest of margins.

The Lions of Teranga came into the Group H decider needing a draw to advance but lost 1-0 to Colombia, Yerry Mina's second-half header proving to be the difference.

Japan were in the same boat as Senegal and they also lost by a single goal to Poland who were already out of contention but with goal difference, goals scored and the head-to-head match-up all level, it was the Japanese who qualified on Fifa's fair play ruling.

It means that Colombia move on to the knockout stage as group winners and Japan sneak through as runners-up.

Gueye, meanwhile, will eventually head back to Finch Farm along with Gylfi Sigurdsson to begin pre-season preparations with Everton.
