Senegal tops Poland amid controversy for first African win

Poland Vs. Senegal Odds, Pick: Lions Slight Underdogs In World Cup Game Why Sadio Mane's work off the ball makes him merit 'world class' billing

The president who travelled to Russia with his wife, is also due to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

"The second goal was kind of curious, we had the ball and I'm convinced that Jan Bednarek didn't see the player coming on", said Nawalka.

The Teranga Lions of Senegal saved Africa some embarrassment when they broke the jinx of defeat on African teams at the World Cup by beating the Poles 2-1 to kick off their campaign in a good note.

"Senegal represent the whole African continent", he said. The trip has since been reduced to three days.

Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski was the man who looked to provide some sort of spark and invention, but even at 2-0 down Poland were far too pedestrian with their passing.

Captain Cheikhou Kouyate, who started on the bench, said ahead of the match that they had been worked "like dogs" over the past weeks by Cisse, who said he was proud of his players.

Senegal extended their lead in somewhat controversial fashion when Niane was allowed back on the field following his injury and promptly latched onto an outrageously sloppy back pass to bundle the ball into the back of the net.

France advances at World Cup, Peru eliminated after two games
Peru are fast enough to do plenty of damage with counter-attacks, and sooner or later, the ball has to fall for them. Guerrero almost missed the World Cup before having his doping ban lifted by a Swiss judge prior to the tournament.


But it is the second match that often counts the most, he warned, and Senegal are staying humble.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Japan beat Colombia 2-1 on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 in their World Cup opener in Group H at the ongoing 2018 Fifa World Cup at the Mordovia Arena, Saransk, Russia.

As for Senegal, we think this GIF sums it all up quite nicely...

Arkadiusz Milik hit a first-time effort wide from close range in the 70th minute and four minutes from time, Poland pulled a goal back through Krychowiak as he rose highest to meet Kamil Grosicki's free-kick and power in his header. "Things are very different here but it is just as important as the victory we got against France".

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.

"I don't really know what happened". But despite the win, Nishino said nothing was decided yet. The teams risk exposing themselves at the back, so we're expecting cautious attacking play from both teams that will yield no victor. His hard work earned the goal he deserved, which was also the eventual match victor for his side.
