Lewandowski frustrated in Poland World Cup loss

Lewandowski set for his FIFA World Cup debut

But 42-year-old Cisse, who who captained the 2002 World Cup team and played much of his time in France, said Tuesday's win at Senegal's World Cup return could not really be compared to the impact of the victory of 16 years ago.

Firstly, an own goal by Poland's centre-half Thiago Cionek put Senegal on the lead before Mbaye Niang "controversial goal" doubled the Teranga Lions' lead on the 60th minute. The Senegal midfielder passed to Gueye, whose right-footed shot from the arc headed toward Szczesny's far post.

Striker M'Baye Niang controlled the ball ahead of an advancing goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny before tapping into an empty 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.

Senegal came out victorious with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Poland in Group H on Tuesday.

The coach of Poland, Adam Nawalka, was "surprised" at the circumstances that led to Senegal's decisive second goal in Wednesday's Group H clash.

With Robert Lewandowski (and his 55 worldwide goals) in the team, there is plenty of hope that Adam Nawałka's men will get to play more than three matches in Russian Federation. And he duly delivered in what Senegal fans hope was not the last of his best performance for the team at this World Cup. Lewandowski admits he has a point to prove after a disappointing Euro 2016, when he scored only once as Poland exited at the quarter-finals stage.

Aaron Carter also reacted to the news, tweeting , "Rip @ xxxtentacion this is absolute devastation so much talent I'm shook". Cellphone video taken at the scene shows the unconscious rapper in the driver's seat of his vehicle after the shooting.

Senegal's victory has now become a breath of fresh air for Africa since Friday when Egypt lost their opening Group A match to Uruguay at Ekaterinburg.

The youngest coach here at 42, Cisse said: "They had more of the ball but every time they made a mistake we hit them and forced them back".

"We are Senegal, so we are proud to play for our country but I can see that the whole continent is supporting us, too".

Niang won a challenge with Lukasz Piszczek, burst down the left and found Mane who in turn slipped the ball to Gueye.

"We didn't get any good forward balls to do anything with, and instead concentrated on keeping the ball at the back and keeping possession".

He took the free kick himself and although he managed Poland's first shot on target, it was saved by Khadim N'Diaye - the only African-based player in the Senegal squad.

But the fancied Poland side, back at the World Cup after a 12-year absence, were in truth bereft of ideas in the first half and could find no real answers after the break despite increased urgency.
