Cisse told journalists the Poland victory, the top seeded team in the Group "H" injected more adrenaline to the hungry lions which he expects to manifest in the Japan's clash.
Japan's Keisuke Honda celebrates with Shinji Okazaki after scoring their second goal.
Senegal coach Aliou Cisse criticised his team for letting Japan equalise twice in their World Cup Group H game on Sunday, and said he expected more from central defenders Kalidou Koulibaly and Salif Sane.
And it was Senegal who retook the lead five minutes later as Wague met a ball played across the box and coolly sidefooted into the roof of the net for his first global goal.
Eiji Kawashima was slow to react to Juan Quintero's goal for Colombia in Japan's opening 2-1 win and the goalkeeper was again at fault for Sadio Mane's early opener, punching against the forward's leg when it looked easier to catch. But Honda ensured things ended level and deservedly so. "The best team was Japan, we have to admit that". "We can't underestimate the Japanese team that played very well".
"He can do better, but today he was better than against Poland and he needs to do better against Colombia".
Up next for Japan is a meeting with Poland in Volgograd, where Nishino expects his players to be confident.
"Honestly we are all disappointed, there was a way to win and we did not do it", said Mane, who was only a sporadic danger down Senegal's left.
The Kagoshima Prefecture native also made a vital contribution at the defensive end, tracking back to block a close-range shot from James Rodriguez as Colombia desperately pressed for a late equalizer.
Liverpool's Sadio Mané opened Senegal's account in Yekaterinburg, bundling in at the near post after a scramble in the Japanese goalmouth in the 11th minute after some inept defending from the Japanese rearguard.
Japan had scarcely posed a threat during the first half, but they pulled level with their first clear sight of goal after 34 minutes.
Yuya Osako somehow failed to connect with a Shibasaki cross from five yards out on the hour mark, before another peach of a curler by Inui came crashing back off the bar four minutes later.
After the goal, Japan coach Akira Nishino immediately pointed to Honda and six minutes later the recently installed manger was clenching his fist.
