Senegal came so close but in the end have been eliminated from the World Cup because they had received more yellow cards than Japan.

That means all five African teams – Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Senegal and Nigeria – have been knocked out of the group stages.

It’s the first time since 1982 that no African team has made it through to the knockout stage.
