Senegal found the goal of the advantage in the final minutes of the first half thanks to an inattention of Qatar’s defense.
The African formation had control of the game from the start, creating a few occasions. Meanwhile, Qatar was still showing the struggles seen in the match against Ecuador.
Qatar slowly tried to attack more, attempting a couple of shots from the distance that did not create much trouble for the goalkeeper, though.
In the final minutes, Qatar’s defense gifted Boulaye Dia the ball in the middle of the box. The striker was alone and easily scored the 1-0.
