A. The House

After what happened in his World Cup debut, the Spanish’s Qatar Felix Sanchez decided to change the chip. So the hostess decided to join their lines, play deeper in the field and wait for their opportunities on the counter. She was not going to give away space behind her, especially against a Senegal whose specialty is speed, so through defense and the low block she tried to raise her football. The Africans carried the weight of the match in the first minutes, but without mordant.

The first big chance came in the 24th minute through Win Gueye, but his shot from the edge missed the target. Just four minutes later, Senegal was able to run for the first time in the match, after a long serve from Edward Mendy who found Ismaila Sarr… but Meshaal barsham He saved ‘in extremis’ with an unorthodox start. And, then, the controversy arrived: he ran the minute 34 and Akram Afif He reached the African area, where Sarr himself rammed him. But Mateu did not see anything punishable.

This action could have changed the game, something that happened just seven minutes later. Senegal, who clearly had the initiative, put a ball into the heart of the area that made no sense… until Boualem Khoukhi gave it to him. The Qatari center-back not only cleared badly, but in his attempt to recover he slipped and left the ball dead in the area, where Boulaye Dia appeared with everything in favor to shoot Barsham and overtake Senegal on the scoreboard. Only one mistake could unbalance the balance.

Another blow… and Mendy

And another new blow came as soon as the second part began. The ball had just gotten rolling again when Senegal increased their lead. It was running in minute 47 when, after taking a corner, Diedhiou entered like a plane from behind to hit a stunning header past Barsham again. The Africans banged their fists on the table as soon as the match restarted and Qatar, who jumped onto the pitch with renewed hopes, suffered a new setback

Qatar tried to cut back, but with more heart than head… but, then mendy appeared. The Chelsea goalkeeper made two consecutive saves of a very high level: the first, a shot from the edge of Ali Almoez who, with a great stretch, sent a corner in minute 62. Three minutes later, he made another incredible save, this time at Ismael Mohammad, in a point-blank shot from the small area. Possibly, one of the World Cup stops so far.

Qatar deserved to close the gap, a fact that occurred in the 78th minute. Mohammad, once again, hung an incredible ball into the area, where Mohamed Muntari entered with everything to close the gap with his head and give hope to the hostess. There were ten more minutes left to continue dreaming… but Bamba Diengin a good counter, sentenced the match for Senegal in minute 83. The dream of Qatar is soon gone: the hostess turns off her illusions with more pain than glory.

Senegal met the forecasts and achieved a victory that allows keep dreaming of reaching the round of 16 after defeating Qatar (1-3) in the second match of Group A. The Africans showed their superiority and took advantage of two mistakes by the hosts to win a win that makes them dependent on themselves.
