WORLD CUP: Senegal beat host, Qatar to get first win

Senegal got their first win of the 2022 World Cup with a 3-1 victory over Qatar.

Dia opened the scoring just before half-time when he took advantage of Khoukhi’s slip to roll his shot past Barsham into the back of the net.

Just three minutes after the break, Diedhiou doubled their lead with a glancing header from a corner.

Qatar did grow into the game and got their first-ever World Cup goal when substitute Muntari thumped in a header, but Dieng wrapped it up late on with a first-time strike.

Senegal scored three goals in a single World Cup match for a second time, after a 3-3 draw with Uruguay in 2002. This was also the first time they won a World Cup match by a margin of more than one goal, in what was their 10th match at the finals.

Qatar have become the first host nation to lose two matches in a single group round of an edition of the World Cup.
