On Friday, Senegal defeated Qatar 3-1 in the World Cup opener after a defensive blunder gave the African champion the lead.

After Qatari defender Boualem Khoukhi attempted to make a clearance under no pressure, failed to connect properly, and fell on his backside, striker Boulaye Dia drilled in that opening goal.

With a header from a corner at the start of the second half, Famara Diedhiou increased the score to 2-0.

With a header to make it 2-1, Qatar’s substitute Mohammed Muntari gave the home team some hope. However, the Qatari comeback only lasted six minutes before Bamba Dieng once again gave Senegal a two-goal lead.
