Senegal have become the first African country to win a game in the ongoing World Cup after a 3-1 win over the host nation, Qatar, on Friday.

The Teranga Lions lost their first match to The Netherlands but bounced back on Friday to revive their qualification hopes.

With Senegal’s win, the hope of the host nation appears to be hanging, as their qualification to the next round appeared slim.

Goals from Boulaye Dia, Famara Diedhiou and Bamba Dieng were enough to beat Qatar, who will be eliminated if Group A leaders, The Netherlands, avoid defeat to Ecuador later on Friday.
