Senegal beat Poland 2-1 in World Cup group game

MOSCOW, June 19, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Senegal punished Poland to win 2-1 in their opening World Cup Group H game in Moscow on Tuesday.

The African side took a 37th-minute lead when Idrissa Gueye’s shot took a massive deflection off defender Thiago Cionek to wrong foot the keeper.

Then on the hour, woeful defending allowed Mbaye Niang to tap home into an empty net before Poland pulled one back via Grzegorz Krychowiak’s late header.
