Qatar – Senegal: Diedhiou doubles the lead (0-2, LIVE)

Senegal cannot be missed after losing by a short header to the Netherlands. Qatar, on the other hand, wants to restore its image. In the first half hour, the stakes seemed to paralyze both teams. Senegal had the best actions. Diedhiou’s header got closer to the target (17′). Gueye did not find the target (24′).

The organizing country was scared with the failed exit of Barsham, the number 2 goalkeeper propelled holder, but that did not lead to consequence. After the half hour, Qatar should have benefited from a penalty but the referee did not penalize Sarr’s faulty push on Afif.

Shortly before half-time, Dia opened the scoring by taking advantage of a completely missed clearance from Khoukhi (0-1, 41st). At the rest of the locker room, Diedhiou widened the gap by exploiting a corner (0-2, 48th).

This second Senegalese goal had the gift of waking up the Qataris somewhat, who were slightly more enterprising at the offensive level. In the 60th minute, Hasan fired a powerful shot that went just wide of Mendy’s goal. The latter came out on top two minutes later by deflecting a ball in extremis with a corner kick.
