Colombia-Senegal: analysis of the match
With only one point on the clock, the Senegal team ranks last in Group C, behind Colombia, Japan and Israel. However, the players managed by Malick Daf are not yet eliminated but must absolutely win their last match of the group stage against the Colombians, leaders of the group, in order to maintain a chance of qualifying. Which would be a small miracle given the scenario of this start to the tournament, which saw them snatch a narrow point against Israel (1-1) after being led to the score.
But fortunately for the reigning African champions, Pape Demba Diop turned into a providential man (80th) on a decisive pass from young Mamadou Gning (16), author of a thunderous entry. During their first match, the Senegalese players had been beaten by Japan (0-1). For its part, Colombia have already qualified thanks to their success against Israel and then against Japan, each time with a score of 2 goals to 1. But this does not mean that they will waste this meeting… Les Lionceaux will therefore have to be 100% to try to snatch their place for the eighth.
