Russia 2018: Senegal Dash Africa Hope, Crash Out Of W/Cup
Senegal have crashed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup after they were beaten 1-0 by Colombia on Thursday afternoon.
This means no African team made it from the group stages of the Russia 2018 World Cup.
After a barren first half, Yerry Mina’s 74th minute header beat goalkeeper Khadim N'Diaye into the net.
The Teranger Lions tried to come back but failed to convert the few chances they had.
Senegal finished on the same points (4) and same goals scored and conceded as Japan, who were beaten 1-0 by Poland, but the Asians advanced to the Round of 16 ahead of the Africans, on fewer yellow cards received.
Most Africans had hoped Senegal will do the continent proud after they won their first game. The West Africans went on to draw their next game before suffering a defeat to Colombia.
