After an untypically humble build-up to the tournament, England fans have allowed themselves to dream of World Cup glory following last week's win over Tunisia.

27-year-old midfielder Hotaru Yamaguchi said that though they are still enjoying the opening win, everyone now is preparing for the next match.

There's another similarity between Iceland and Panama that should enter into England's preparation.

He said: "I am the only black coach in this World Cup".

Playing from the off with an ease and trickery that contrasted with the stressed-looking England flops of recent global tournaments, Gareth Southgate's team romped into a remarkable 5-0 lead at half-time.

Southgate turned the page on England's "golden generation" in a bid to revitalize the squad.

"This World Cup really doesn't give you any time to breathe".

Panama, for its part, has played the role of a team happy to be here.

England and Panama have a 3:00 pm kick-off (1200 GMT) in Nizhny Novgorod meaning players could struggle in temperatures topping 30°C.

Poland also lost their opening game in Group H - 2-1 to Senegal - and will be equally desperate for three points to boost their chances of staying in the tournament. That means the victor would be in good shape to advance past the group stage, and a draw could end up benefiting either or both.

For example, if you buy a laptop or printer from Newegg or a loveseat from Overstock you should budget for state sales tax. Kennedy also noted the existence of software that "may make it easier for small businesses to cope" with compliance.

Senegal and Japan are now the only two sides with points in Group H. Nigeria is the other.

With Japan coach Akira Nishino indicating he will send out a similar starting 11 in Yekaterinburg, Osako looks set to once again take a leading role as the Samurai Blue try to break down Senegal's mobile and organized defenders. Leicester City forward Shinji Okazaki was a substitute against Colombia, but may be fit to start after recovering from a right calf strain. We should have played sharper.

"All that makes things more hard, it jeopardises us to think about certain things too much".

Experienced AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata could come into the centre of defence, but Pekerman seems hesitant to do so given his injury problems just before the World Cup.

Senegal come into the match equally high on confidence after a strong defensive display in Moscow helped them neutralise the Polish attack led by Robert Lewandowski.

The tournament couldn't have started much worse for Colombia.

It's a reminder both of Colombia's impressive run in Brazil, with Los Cafeteros nearly knocking out the hosts in the quarterfinal, and Rodriguez's importance to the Colombian national team. Livewire forward Mane is Senegal's prime dangerman, but it was the raw pace and power of Mbaye Niang and a mistake by Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny that clinched victory on Tuesday after Thiago Cionek's own goal put the Africans ahead.

Things may not have gone as spectacularly for Rodriguez as he would have liked since that World Cup, but he's still Colombia's best player, its creative force and one of its main goal-scoring threats.
