FIFA World Cup

WORLDCUP, What is The Fate of Senegal?

The first round was a dark one for the dark continent. The African continent failed to register any win with Senegal, Ghana and Cameroon losing to The Dutch, the Portuguese and The Swiss respectively. The other two teams, Tunisia and Morocco, were held to a 0-0 draw.

The second round however began with a Ray of hope for the African people as Senegal beat hosts, Qatar, with a scoreline of three goals to one. The win meant that Qatar had already been eliminated from football's biggest stage. Today's results have seen Netherlands claim the top spot, Ecuador coming second, thanks to Valencia's heroics and our favourite Senegal at number three just above Qatar. The question is, WHAT IS THE FATE OF SENEGAL?

The whole world assumes that Netherlands will win against Qatar who are the weakest team in the group. Netherlands are already a qualified team having garnered 4 points from the toughest in the group. Beating Qatar will be easier for them. That means the top spot is claimed. However, there is a chance fir Senegal to claim the second spot. Standing at number two with three points, SENEGAL MUST GET A WIN FROM ECUADOR. A loss or a draw will see them get eliminated. Senegal had had the easiest route compared to all the African countries. Their elimination will be a very big blow to Africa as the team was earlier seen to be the surest.

The 2018 world cup saw no African country going past the group stage. It was a shame for African football, a repeat of the same will be even shameful. We are all hoping and praying for the Lions of Teranga.
