Senegal It Is! Africa’s First Win At Russia 2018 World Cup

The Terenga Lions of Senegal earned Africa’s first win of the Russia 2018 World Cup after defeating Poland 2-1 on Tuesday evening in Moscow. 

Thiago Cionek’s own goal, the defender deflecting in a shot from Idrissa Gueye, handed Senegal the lead in the 37th minute.

Senegal doubled their lead when M’Baye Niang took advantage of a mix-up between Grzegorz Krychowiak and Wojciech Szczesny to finish with ease.

Adam Nawalka’s side set up an exciting finish when Krychowiak somewhat made amends from his error by heading home a Kamil Grosicki free-kick, but they could not find a late leveller.

Poland will need to make amends when they take on Colombia – who surprisingly lost to Japan on Tuesday – while Senegal have qualification for the next phase in their sights.
