Senegal stave off late Poland fight back

They were direct, strong in their duels, coherent as an attacking unit and defied pre-match suggestions that they didn't know their best attacking lineup to trouble Poland throughout.

Poland were widely expected to qualify for the knockout rounds but after suffering a seventh loss in their last nine World Cup matches, FIFA's eighth-ranked team are in danger of making an early exit.

Poland's line-up drama boiled down to one story - would their towering centre-back Kamil Glik be fit after injuring himself practising an overhead kick?

It was the sort of match where such distractions were welcome.

Krychowiak needlessly hooked a high ball back towards his own goal from inside the Senegal half and with Szczesny attempting to intercept by coming out of his penalty area, Niang gleefully knocked the ball into an unguarded goal.

Poland striker Arkadiusz Milik is expected to be fit for the match against Senegal, despite suffering a hand injury.

Lewandowski was no different against Senegal, landing just one shot on target; a free-kick, which illustrates the lack of service he received.

Patient passing produced an opportunity for Gueye, albeit his 20-yard strike took a huge deflection off Cionek to wrong-foot Poland goalkeeper Szczesny.

It would have gone wide if Cionek had not made a decision to wrong-foot former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and plant it in the bottom corner of his net.

Senegal President Macky Sall was in the stands to watch his nation's first World Cup match since 2002, when the team reached the quarterfinals before losing to Turkey.

But worse was to come for Poland on the hour.

Szczesney came rushing out to collect a wayward back-pass but completely mistimed his run and failed to clear the ball, allowing Niang to tap into an open goal for Senegal's all-important second goal.

Poland kept huffing and puffing and they and Krychowiak gained some consolation when he planted a firm header past Ndiaye with four minutes to play.

It was too little, too late, though, and the beat from the Senegalese drums never dipped.

The Teranga Lions got Africa's first points of this summer's tournament on the board, and will take encouragement from a display that showcased their speed, directness, physicality and offensive cohesion.
