The last 2 teams to kick off are Poland and Senegal.

Poland made it to the quarters of the Euros in 2016, but this is their first World Cup since 2006. They have a sprinkling of good players, led of course by Robert Lewandowski. They'll fancy their chances of getting out of this group and could potentially match up against England in the last 16 if everything falls into place.

As for Senegal, this is only their 2nd World Cup after they last made it in 2002. They will be led by Sadio Mane and Mame Biram Diouf, plus have Cheikhou Kouyate, Idrissa Gueye, Kalidou Koulibaly, so have a solid core of players. Do they represent Africa's best chance at having a representative in the knockout stages?

Should be a good match, this one.

All match chat in here.

I have to say that whenever I see Poland play in tournament football I've never been convinced by them. They always seem to be ponderous and predictable in their play, even more so than England at their worst. They also never seem to create any meaningful chances for Ledanowski.

Don't follow international football but I heard the commentator say they were ranked 8th in the world.

Reckon this will be the tightest group. Both Japan and Senegal (if they hang on) winning has opened it right up.

Yep he said that and it baffles me how they've managed to attain such a high ranking, which I say just as they have scored!
