The Group 'H' stage match between Japan and Senegal, which proved to be a neck to neck contest resulting in a draw with both the teams tied at 2-2 produced some memorable football and tweets as well. The match was played in the Yekaterinburg stadium and the audience was thoroughly entertained. However, one particular aspect of the game stood out which was picked up by Twitter.
A tweet with a Giff went viral claiming to be the best offside trap ever. Before we get into that argument, first let's have a look at the tweet:

Few also supported the earlier claim of it being the best trap ever:
No man wrong!! Notice the two players running the opposite way.. to cover if something went wrong!!

Now it may be a matter of argument if the trap was indeed the greatest ever but the game between Japan and Senegal sure proved to be a delight for the fans and added to the already interesting group stage. What the match has done for both the teams is that they now get to decide their own fate courtesy the tie.
