win tonight, and the host's passage into the knockout stages would be almost complete. but egypt and mo salah stood in the way, also desperate for a win after their loss to uruguay. looking forward to return. the first contribution from mordovia arena. —— mohamed salah. in a cagey first half, chances were rare and mohamed salah just recovered from injury, shouldering the hopes of his nation. this effort the closest he came to giving them the lead. but it was russia's luck that changed after the break. golovin‘s cross was only punched clear and the bouncing follow—up was turned past his own keeper by fathi. it was soon two, and then artem dzyuba's third made it a grand total of eight goals for russia in the first two matches. salah scored from the spot but egypt will be heading home, russia are heading to the last 16. in the days of the games of group h, japan beat columbia
by two goals to one. carlos sanchez with the first red card of the tournament. shinji kagawa converting. senegal also triumphed 2—1 over poland. their second from niang after a poor back pass and confusion in the polish defense. should england qualify for the knockout round, they will meet a team from this group. who that will be after these results is still anyone‘s guess. well, england arrived home at their baysin well, england arrived home at their bays in the early hours of this morning. they are near st petersburg and they have that victory against tunisia in the bag. they left it late and it took to later in the game for a fresh impetus to come in, marcus rashford coming off michael the bench to provide it. are sports editor has been talking to him. england returning to their repino training base this morning, their world cup campaign up and running. they may have left it late
but harry kane's dramatic stoppage time header in volgograd last night secured a first opening—match victory at the tournament since 2006. substitute marcus rashford had helped regain the initiative for england when he came on in the second half. and today the manchester united striker told me just how much the result meant. it's unbelievable and i think when you score, there's nothing that really matches scoring a late winner. i think the fans all can sense that and we definitely sense that on the pitch. england were back training today, knowing that a win against panama in their next match on sunday should be enough to secure a place in the knockout stage of the tournament. this youthful, developing squad came to russia as something of an unknown quantity, but having proved they have what it takes to succeed at this level, last night's victory felt like an important first step in england's recovery after so many failures at recent major tournaments. if you don't win that match,
there is huge pressure on the second game. so even though there is always going to be pressure in a world cup, it just gives the team a little bit more breathing space in order to go out and be a bit more relaxed and express themselves. england may have had their smallest travelling support for years in volgograd but back home their victory was the most watched tv programme this year, a peak of more than 18 million tuning in, and that, remember, was just their opening game. dan roan, bbc news, repino. delight on the streets of moscow tonight after that result for russia. they can look forward bar in a freak set of results to facing spain or portugal in the knockout stages. they could dare to dream about what happens beyond that point. that's it. now on bbc one it's time for the news where you are. hello, i'm olly foster,

petersburg, his was the best chance of the first half. the game burst into life right after the break, and in disastrous egypt's last goal at the world cup with a penalty back in 1990. with a penalty back in egypt's last goal at the world cup with a penalty back in i'm drooling he is the first poll to
score a goal of the world cup. you must be very proud. slightly controversial, he had been receiving treatment on the field, caught them on the blind side after coming back on, and poland got one back, left it too late to salvage a draw, that was 2-1 to too late to salvage a draw, that was 2—1 to senegal, that was also the score in betweenjapan and columbia. japan's first win of the world cup on european soil. this was also a little bit of range for them. as you go back to the last world cup in brazil, it was columbia who knocked japan out in the group stages, so japan out in the group stages, so japan had been waiting for years for this one. and they were terrific.
japan, against columbia, who started with rodriguez on the bench. sanchez was given his marching orders in just the third minute. that was the first red card of the term, he put his penalty straight down the middle, , his penalty straight down the middle,, they could not hold on. japan's extra man counted in the end, and the last 50 minutes or so, and it is the toasterjapan. they are off to a wonderful winning start, my word, they enjoyed that, the japanese, but not as much perhaps as the hosts here in russia. that is the big story that russia are almost there into the knockout stages after wins and. lots of other sports news around was let's head back to the bbc sportscenter. let's move on to cricket.
