DOHA, Nov 21 (Reuters)- Senegal head coach
Aliou Cisse urged his attackers to be more
clinical in front of goal after they lost 2-0 to
the Netherlands in their opening match of the
World Cup at Al Thumama Stadium on
Senegal Coach Speaks after their 2-0 won
Playing with Boulaye Dia as the lone striker
and an attacking trio of Ismaila Sar, ldrissa
Gana Gueye and Krepin Diatta, the African
champions had only four of their 15 shots on
The immediate implication of that result is
that the hosts, Qatar, are out of the
competition with one game to play the first
team eliminated. They have lasted for all of
five days and I think they knew it was all over
for them after their defeat to Senegal. As for
the Netherlands and Ecuador, both are on four
points and both are in pole position to qualify
for the knockout stages. Holland have Qatar
last so we can safely assume they'll make it to
the last 16. Ecuador only need a point against
Senegal in what will be a huge clash.
Netherlands vs Ecuador performance in today's 1-1 draw.
