Koulibaly strike sends Senegal into last 16

Ecuador 1-2 Senegal : Koulibaly strike sends Senegal into last 16

Elation for Senegal; heartbreak for Ecuador!

Senegal are into the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time since 2002!

The only thing that Ecuador dominated was possession but they did not look confident as a whole on the ball. Star man Enner Valencia was a mere spectator for Ecuador today.

Goals from Sarr and Koulibaly make the difference for the Lions of Teranga. Ecuador did score via Caicedo but were unable to hold onto their equalizer as they went on to concede again just three minutes later.

Senegal have also proven that they can play without the presence of star Sadio Mane who has missed the World Cup due to injury.
