Senegal clinch the first African win in the World Cup
It was a balanced tie between the two sides in the first half, as the two powerhouses offered stiff defending at the back and very few chances were created from either side.
The Lions of Teranga kept swapping the front four players in different positions inviting the Polish defense to assume nothing.
Sadio Mane found enough space to pass the ball to Gueye, who unleashed a shot from outside the box only to hit center back Thiago Cionek and embrace the net in Senegal’s first goal.
In the second half Poland were awarded a free-kick at at the edge of the box, yet Robert Lewandowski’s curling effort found the perfect save from 33-year-old Khadim N’Diaye.
Later on a long back pass from Krychowiak was met by a flying M’Baye Niang before Jan Bednarek or Wojciech Szczesny could reach the ball, in a huge error from the defender and the goalkeeper as they gifted the Senegalese forward the second goal.
Arkadiusz Milik missed a sitter from the six yard box and his substitute Dawid Kownacki had his header saved before Krychowiak reduced the deficit by his header but it wasn’t enough to stop Senegal from the this triumph.
