FIFA Beach Soccer Senegal Get First Win At FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup As Egypt Bow Out

Reigning CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations champions Senegal provided their tournament aspirations with a much-needed lifeline on Sunday, February 18, after an unimpressive start to their FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.

The African champions started nervously, losing 6-4 to Belarus in their first game. However, they proved their strength by coming back to defeat Colombia 5-3 on Sunday in their second Group C match.

Senegal’s encouraging win places them second in the group, level on three points with Japan, with whom they will square off in a thrilling match that will determine second place and advancement to the competition’s knockout stages.

The in-form Mandiane Diagne, who scored a brace against Belarus, Papa Ndoye, Raoul Mendy, Ousseynou Faye, and Mamour Diagne, was responsible for Senegal’s goals.

Egypt, meanwhile, lost their second group match of the game to Italy 6-2, shattering any hopes they had of going farther in the competition.

On the first day of the competition, the North Africans lost 2-1 to the hosts, the United Arab Emirates, and needed at least a point to maintain their hopes.

When they play USA on Monday, they plan to exit the competition with a bang.
