Japan is expecting an all-out effort from a Poland side with nothing but pride on the line in its final World Cup group match, forward Shinji Okazaki said Tuesday.

Coming into the tournament eighth in the FIFA rankings, many pundits picked Poland to finish top of Group H, with some tipping them to make an even bigger impact at a World Cup staged close to home.

However, after a 2-1 loss to Senegal and a 3-0 thrashing by Colombia in their first two matches, the Europeans will be heading home regardless of the result against Japan in Volgograd on Thursday.
