Senegal have four points heading into their final Group H game after beating Poland before drawing with Japan, who also have four points.
Japan lost to Poland 1-0 in its final match of the group stage, but thanks to Colombia's 1-0 win over Senegal and an uncommon World Cup tiebreaker rule, the Blue Samurai are through to the round of 16 as Group H's runner-up over the African nation.
Poland's Jan Bednarek scored the only goal of the match in the 59th minute.
Japan received two fewer yellow cards (four) in the group stage, while Senegal had six yellow cards.

Diego Maradona: Lionel Messi's not to blame for anything
Argentina have never previously gone through a first round World Cup group stage without at least one victory before. With Messi struggling, the rumors and reports of Argentina's internal dysfunction have hit a fever pitch.
Senegal have been eliminated from the World Cup in one of the harshest ways possible - and BBC commentator Mark Lawrenson is unimpressed.
The fair play tiebreaker is based on the number of yellow and red cards a team has been given throughout the tournament.
Knowing that they were poised to progress, Japan, seemingly having secured some kind of agreement with the Polish team, spent the final minutes of the game passing amongst themselves under absolutely no pressure at all from their opponents.
Senegal's World Cup is over due to discipline assigned by various referees at what probably seemed like inconsequential moments through the group stage.
While the fair play tiebreaker is far from ideal, it's likely better than what would have been the case had Senegal and Japan also been tied on yellow cards - the final remaining tiebreaker that Federation Internationale de Football Association has, in that case, is the drawing of lots.
