Senegal Beats Poland By Scoring The Sneakiest Goal Of The World Cup

Senegal Beats Poland By Scoring The Sneakiest Goal Of The World Cup

Reacting to the win, Cisse who captained Senegal when they stunned France 1-0 in the opening game of the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea/Japan, revealed his team secured the win.

It was played four, lost four for the African teams so far in Russian Federation before Senegal and Poland became the final two sides to make their bow at this World Cup. The Senegal midfielder passed to Idrissa Gueye, who sent a right-foot shot from the arc toward Wojciech Szczesny's far post.

At resumption, Krychowiak played a high, aimless backpass that Senegalese, striker M'Baye Niang captured and controlled before tapping into an empty net.

Senegal President Macky Sall was in the stands to watch his nation's first World Cup match since 2002, when the team reached the quarterfinals before losing to Turkey.

Grzegorz Krychowiak headed Poland's goal in the 86th minute.

World Cup hosts Russian Federation virtually booked their place in the second round with a 3-1 win over Egypt on Tuesday that moved them to top of Group A with six points from two games.

Colombia, which played with 10 men for the rest of the match, scored late in the first half on Juan Quintero's rolling but accurate free kick, but Osako's determination led to a 73rd-minute header from Keisuke Honda's corner kick that gave Japan three points.

Aliou Cissé's Senegal will not strike fear into too many at this World Cup but were undoubtedly the better of the two sides and deserving of the three points.

Poland was widely expected to qualify for the knockout rounds but after suffering a seventh loss in its last nine World Cup matches, FIFA's eighth-ranked team is in danger of making an early exit. Poland have some formidable players up front including the likes of Lewandowski and Milk, both of whom were kept quiet by Koulibaly.

"We are Senegal but I can guarantee the whole of Africa is supporting the Senegal team. I felt there was something on and was able to get in there and score".

Senegal's tiny group of fans had on Tuesday made themselves heard at the stadium with their uninterrupted rendition of the traditional Mbalax as the Sadio Mane-led side dominated proceedings against their more fancied opponents. "There were lots of unnecessary mistakes and lack of accuracy, and simply we didn't play a very fluid football".

Lewandowski sprang into life five minutes after halftime as he won possession, burst clear and was up-ended by Salif Sané.
