Senegal punishes Poland for mistakes in 2-1 win

Senegal's return to the World Cup ended triumphantly as they edged Poland 2-1 in Moscow on Tuesday.

Indeed, Krychowiak let loose a sloppy back-pass that was gobbled up by Mbaye Niang, who dodged past the charging Wojciech Szczesny and walked the ball into the gaping maw of the Polish net. Adam Nawalka's side looked short of ideas and imagination throughout, barely fashioning any chances of note from open play and relying on an admittedly wonderful header from a set-piece to get on the scoresheet.

Late in the second-half, Krychowiak redeemed himself as he headed home from a 15-yard free-kick but it was a little too late for Poland. Lewandowski admits he has a point to prove after a disappointing Euro 2016, when he scored only once as Poland exited at the quarter-finals stage.

The FIFA World Cup 2018 Poland vs Senegal match will take place on Tuesday, June 19, 2018.

Their two goals may have been fortunate but Senegal were worthy winners of an entertaining encounter.

The African side - which shocked France on its World Cup debut in 2002, its only previous appearance - gradually started to dominate but the opening goal had a large slice of good fortune.

As one of the elite two-way players in the league, the Spurs will demand a significant package in return for their star. Any offer Cleveland might make would have to start with the No.8 overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.

They showed tremendous fight, desire and determination which is in stark contrast to Poland's pitiful display.

He will hoping to get over the mistake as quickly as possible with two hugely important games round the corner in a wide-open group.

DF Salif Sane, 8 - Troubled by Robert Lewandowski at the start of the second half, picking up a booking, although apart from that he was a rock at the heart of the defence for Senegal, relentlessly protecting N'Diaye's goal.

Defenders: Jan Bednarek, Bartosz Bereszynski, Thiago Cionek, Kamil Glik, Artur Jedrzejczyk, Michal Pazdan, and Lukasz Piszczek. Poland returned for the first time since 2006. Probably, Sadio Mane can be moved into a more central position as he offers more of a threat from the middle and is quicker. Working the channels well and leading Senegal's high-pressing game, the Liverpool forward was a key component of Aliou Cissé's gameplan. Will Robert Lewandowski step up for Poland?!

Midfielders: Pape Alioune Ndiaye (Stoke), Idrissa Gueye (Everton), Cheikhou Kouyate (West Ham), and Cheikh N'Doye (Birmingham). But from a decent position, the Senegal forward drags his shot well, well wide. After going 2-0 up, Senegal switched to a back five and forced Poland backwards anytime they had the ball by closing them down quickly especially when they approached Senegal's defensive third.
