Senegal beats Poland 2-1, 1st African win at World Cup

  • Sadio Mane can be a thorn in Poland's side on Tuesday

Nawalka sent on Southampton defender Jan Bednarek at halftime - Jakub Blaszczykowski making way on his 100th worldwide appearance - as Cionek's own goal ensured that Poland's 32-year wait for a clean sheet at the World Cup goes on.

Sadio Mane & Robert Lewandowski start for their respective sides and in a odd, (not really) quirk of fate are both captains for their countries! This made it very hard for Poland to find a way through the middle. Lewandowski has an enviable goalscoring record this season with 41 goals in 48 games in all competitions this season and will be looking to open his World Cup account against Senegal in Moscow.

After Japan beat 10-man Colombia 2-1 earlier in the day, it leaves Poland, one of the top seeds in the draw, next playing Colombia in a battle for survival. Earlier, Polish fans had nearly taken over Moscow. Visiting next door is easy and they came in hordes wearing their white and bright red dresses raising the decibel level in and around the Spartak Stadium on Tuesday.

One would have to stop short of calling this an upset because Senegal, arguably, are the best Africa have to offer (especially with the circus surrounding Mohammad Salah and his fitness).

Suarez qualifie l’Uruguay (et la Russie)
L'Arabie Saoudite va devoir oublier cet épisode et se concentrer sur ce match décisif pour son avenir dans la compétition. Les partenaires d'Edinson Cavani joueront la première place de la poule contre le pays hôte, lundi prochain.

Robert Lewandowski is the latest star player to struggle at the tournament without the support of his high-quality club teammates. Quite what Krychowiak was doing trying to pass back from inside his own half only he will know, while Bednarek was seemingly taking a short nap and Niang appeared from nowhere to take advantage of the shambles. Sarr also did his best on the right flank. Social media would have you believe the Lions of Teranga also used motivation from unmatched facial expressions and hand motions from coach Aliou Cissé.

Niang sprinted past Michal Pazdan down the left and lay the ball to skipper Sadio Mane. The Senegal midfielder passed to Idrissa Gueye, who sent a right-foot shot from the arc toward Wojciech Szczesny's far post. Poland tried to inject some pace in the second session but defensive calamity hit them on the hour mark. He tries to pass the ball back to Szczesny from near enough the half-way line but he doesn't get enough on it!

Instead, the speedy Mbaye Niang got in front of his defender, nicked the ball away from Szczesny and rolled it into the empty net.
