Senegal stave off late Poland fight back

World Cup 2018, Poland vs Senegal: Preview, Team News, Prediction, Head-to-Head & Key Stats

Poland advanced from the group stage in four consecutive World Cups between 1974 and 1986, and they earned at least a draw each of the times. Niang took advantage of the moment, beating a Poland defender and goalie to the ball, then scoring on a wide-open net to push the score to 2-0.

Poland striker Arkadiusz Milik is expected to be fit for the match against Senegal, despite suffering a hand injury.

Senegal is making its second World Cup apperance ever.

Midfielders: Jakub Blaszczykowski, Jacek Goralski, Maciej Rybus, Piotr Zielinski, Karol Linetty, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Kamil Grosicki, Slawomir Peszko, and Rafal Kurzawa.

Senegal have won 50 percent of their World Cup matches (3/6), the best win rate of any African nation in the competition. Subs: Bednarek 5, Kownacki 5, Bereszynsk N/A.

Theres mounting evidence that the Google Pixel 3 XL will have a notch on the front and will not have a dual camera on the back. For the last two years, starting with the original Pixel in 2016, Google Pixel has been the smartphone with the best camera.

Midfielders: Pape Alioune Ndiaye (Stoke), Idrissa Gueye (Everton), Cheikhou Kouyate (West Ham), and Cheikh N'Doye (Birmingham).

Their opening goal was heavily deflected and their second was down to a major error from Grzegorz Krychowiak, but Senegal still deserved their win. Lewandowski steps up to take the free-kick which is in a central position, around 25 yards out. he curls it up and over the wall but N'Diaye is at full stretch to push it behind for a corner.

Poland will lament the misfortune of Thiago Cionek's own goal, but they only had themselves to blame for losing this match. He tries to pass the ball back to Szczesny from near enough the half-way line but he doesn't get enough on it!

As Senegal and Poland volleyed the ball back and forth, Niang got brought back on just as Poland directed the ball back to their keeper to reset the possession. Piszczek drills a low cross from the right to Milik but his first-time effort at the near post fails to find the target.

But while the Senegal first was unlucky for Poland, they were architects of their own downfall for the decisive second, handing Niang his first worldwide goal on the hour mark. Robert Lewandowski has the goals both with Bayern Munich and Poland to back his claim but, having been utterly adamant that Sadio Mane also belonged on the absolute elite stage of world football, Aliou Cisse had good reason here to feel vindicated. It's going to count!
