The coach Felix Sanchez, from Qatar, made an important change from the first to the second game. Swapped insecure goalkeeper Alsheeb for substitute Barsham. Senegal, with more quality, didn’t care about that and from the beginning of the game pressed in search of the goal, which did not take away the excitement of the Qatari fans (almost exclusively male), who positioned themselves right behind one of the goals.

At 15 minutes, Barsham was demanded. the Senegalese Diatta stole the ball and filled the foot, but the goalkeeper sent it to corner. At 23 it was time to Ghana Gueye take chances from outside the area, taking paint from the goalpost of Qatar. Nobody doubted that the keynote of the game would be this: one team attacking and the other waiting for a single opportunity. maybe, if Sadio Mane was in this Cup, Senegal would have much easier to break through the blockade of the hosts.

At 40 minutes there was no way. A blunder by the defender Qatari Khoukhiwho did not know how to cut the ball, allowed the number 9 Boulaye Day arrived hitting low to make it 1 to 0. Deserved result.

In the final stage the pressure continued. In a charge of cornerafter 3 minutes, Famara Diedhiou appeared with his head to swing the nets again. 2-0 with extreme ease.

Ali Amoez also tested Mendy at 17. And, at 21, Edouard Mendy saved the Cup, cornering a ball that Muhammad hit from inside the small area. Until then, Qatar still did not score goals in its own Cup.

After so much pressure, the Senegalese coach Aliou Cissé realized that he needed to change the way the team was playing and started making substitutions, even trying to stop the game more often. The strategy didn’t work out and, in the 32nd minute, in a cross to the area, substitute Mohammed Muntari tested for Mendy’s net, who didn’t even move. Qatar reduced the advantage to 2 to 1 and set the fans on fire at the stadium.

But the reaction was aborted in the 37th minute, when, in a low cross to the Qatar area, the substitute Cheikh Diengwho had just entered, extended the score to 3 to 1 with an unstoppable shot by goalkeeper Barsham.

The victory put Senegal back in the Cup. Thus, the match against Ecuador, for the third round, on Tuesday (29), will be decisive. Qatar ended up eliminated after the second consecutive defeat.
