Senegal's controversial victor 'kind of curious' - Poland coach Adam Nawalka

Adjust Comment Print

Poland, who are now ranked eight in FIFA rankings, will take on Senegal, who will be returning to the FIFA World Cup after a gap of 16 years.

Robert Lewandowski, quiet and frustrated all game, did have a freekick repelled by Khadim N'Diaye, though the 'keeper wasn't really close to being beaten... Sadio Mane is looking in a fine touch and is making good runs from the left.

In Monday's pre-match press conference, Senegal coach Aliou Cisse bristled at the suggestion the Liverpool star was not already considered one of the world's best and on Tuesday he helped underline the man-on-Mane narrative by dropping his captain, West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate, and giving the armband to his superstar.

Senegal is tied for the group lead with Japan, which upset Colombia 2-1 earlier.

In fairness to Krychowiak, he had been unaware of Niang's loitering as the forward had only just been waved back onto the pitch by the referee.

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

Subs: Fabianski, Jedrzejczyk, Bednarek, Goralski, Linetty, Teodorczyk, Glik, Peszko, Bereszynski, Kurzawa, Kownacki, Bialkowski.

Kawhi Leonard Reportedly Won't Be Traded Within Western Conference
Most teams trading away a star would prefer to deal him to the opposite conference so they can play against them less. The Knicks wouldn't have a chance at getting Leonard if they wanted to get him in a trade.

Uruguay Face Egypt, Morocco To Meet Iran
Salah was one of the outstanding players in the world this season as he helped propel Liverpool to the Champions League final. Mohamed Salah appeared to express concern over his shoulder injury in the moments leading up to Egypt's clash with Uruguay .

In the first half, without the ball, Senegal formed two banks of four, leaving N'baye Niang and Mame Diouf upfront. But from a decent position, the Senegal forward drags his shot well, well wide.

He tees up Gueye who rifles a low shot from the top of the box, it takes a wicked deflection off Cionek, wrong-footing the goalkeeper and ending up in the back of the net.

Poland meets Colombia the same day in what could be an unofficial elimination game because a second loss could prove costly in Group H. Both matches can be streamed on fuboTV (Try for free). What is Krychowiak doing?!

The Southampton defender did not see the Senegalese poacher until it was too late and he then poked the ball past Szczesny's late-arriving cavalry and walked the ball into the net. Piszczek drills a low cross from the right to Milik but his first-time effort at the near post fails to find the target.

Poland scored their lone goal off a Krychowiak header in the 86th minute, but it wasn't enough to overcome defeat. It's gone to VAR, was it offside? No!
