World Cup: Senegal Gives Africa its First Win

Senegal defeated Poland by 2:1 to give Africa its first win in the on-going 2018 FIFA World Cup. Senegal’s first goal was put down as an own goal after a Polish defender deflected a Senegalese shot into his own net.

In the 60th minute, Niang, coming back into the pitch having gone out following an injury, latched unto a defensive error to give Senegal her second goal.

The Senegalese however had a scary last 8 minutes as Poland pulled one back in the 86th minute and tried hard to get an equalizer.
