AFCON

Cissie Senegal, Big Win To Africans After Netherlands vs Ecuador 1-1 Draw, Senegal 1 point behind.

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

Monday.

Senegal Coach Speaks after their 2-0 won

against Qatar.

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

target.

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.
