The Senegal team knows that it is obliged to beat Qatar to continue with the hopes of qualifying for the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup. For now, it has achieved its goal, since it defeats the local team 1-0.
At 41′, Krépin Diatta sent a ball into the area and a defender tried to clear it. However, he made a mistake and the ball remained on the grass and that was taken advantage of by Boulaye Dia who had a strong shot to overcome Meshaal Barsham’s resistance.
If the partial result is maintained, Senegal would add three points and equalize the Netherlands and Ecuador, who will face each other in a few hours. For its part, the Asian team is with a foot and a half out of the 2022 World Cup.
Senegal vs. Qatar: match preview
With a view to the second challenge at home, the Qatar coach stated that “you learn from your mistakes.” In this sense, Sánchez believes that they will show a better version, since they have already overcome the stage fright of the debut at home: “We have to be ourselves,” he added in relation to what he expects from the Asian Cup champion in 2019.
On his side, Senegal was close to keeping a point against the ‘Oranje’. But, a couple of errors by goalkeeper Edouard Mendy cost them a 2-0 loss. Despite this, Cissé indicated that he has full confidence in the ‘1 ′ of Chelsea. In addition, the strategist of ‘Los leones de la Teranga’ hopes that Ismaila Sar and Krepin Diatta will be the offensive solution in the absence of Sadio Mané.
