This Is What Senegal's World Cup Victory Against Poland Looked Like

In Photos: What the stadium really looked like when Senegal became the first African team to win a match at the 2018 World Cup.

Senegal earned a 2-1 win versus Poland that turned the World Cup's Group H upside down, following Japan's upset win against Colombia.

Despite being, arguably, the best African team at the 2018 World Cup—led by star players like Sadio Mané, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Cheikhou Kouyaté—they were widely considered to be underdogs against Robert Lewandowski's Poland.

Well, this Senegal team showed that they were a force to be reckoned with and they got the win against the odds, making them the first African team to get a victory at the 2018 World Cup.
