Senegal have today bagged Africa’s World Cup win, putting the entire continent high on the map.

However, the deadlock was broken in the 41st minute courtesy of Senegal’s Boulaye Dia who fired the first goal, putting the Teranga Lions in the lead.

Two minutes into the second half, Senegal punched the hosts in the mouth with a perfect header from Famara Diedhiou earning them a 2-0 lead.

Just as it seemed when Senegal was strangling life out of the Qataris, Mohammed Muntari cut the lead with a first goal for the host nation 74 minutes in. He scored only 4 minutes after being subbed in.
