AFCON Champion, Senegal Becomes First African Team To Qualify For World Cup’s Round Of 16 After Defeating Ecuador | MarvelTvUpdates

Senegal has become the first African to qualify for the 2022 World Cup’s round of 16 following a 2-1 victory over Ecuador.

Netherlands’ dominant victory over Qatar meant only a win would see Senegal through to the knockouts from Group A, while Ecuador would have progressed with a draw.

Senegal got the first goal in the match after Ismaila Sarr converted a penalty kick in the first half.

When Moisés Caicedo cancelled out Ismaïla Sarr’s penalty in the 67th minute at the Khalifa Stadium, Ecuador were heading into the knockout stages for the second time in their history.
