At the current World Cup in Russia, Senegal has made history by becoming the first African side to advance to the round of sixteen. This came after Senegal defeated Ecuador by scoring two goals two. Senegal got a strong start, as they were consistently dangerous in front of the Ecuador box. Boulaye Dia had a clear opportunity, but he blew it early on in the game. Nevertheless, Senegal was awarded a penalty just as it appeared the game would end in a tie at halftime. Ismaila Sarr took a position behind the goal and finished the play with a no-look kick to make the score 1-0 before the half.
In the second half, in the seventieth minute, Moises Caicedo scored a goal for Ecuador that came from a corner kick. The goal was credited to Ecuador. All eyes are now focused on Tunisia, Ghana, and Cameroon, who are sitting relatively well and can still advance to the next round. This gave the Ecuadorian side new hope, but it was short-lived, as Senegal scored a goal a minute later via Kalidou Koulibaly.
