Poland 1-2 Senegal: Five things we learned

Poland need to improve elsewhere too ahead of the clash against Colombia.

Expected Crowd Turnout: The Poland vs Senegal encounter is expected to be a house-full affair with a total crowd turnout of 43,700. Fubo TV also offers three days of auto recording and 30 hours of Cloud DVR service in case you're busy at work for the Poland Senegal soccer game.

Forwards: Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Diao Balde Keita (Monaco), Ismaila Sarr (Rennes), Diafra Sakho (Rennes), Moussa Konate (Amiens), Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke), and Mbaye Niang (AC Milan).

Poland continued to launch the ball into the penalty area during four minutes of added-on time, but Senegal successfully repelled the danger to start just their second-ever appearance in this tournament with a win.

Robert Lewandowski spearheaded the Poland attack.

Senegal will be playing in honor of Bruno Metsu, their late coach who led them to the quarterfinals back in 2002.

Natural disaster kills 3, injures at least 40 in Japan
The train and subway service in and around Osaka, including the bullet train to Tokyo , was suspended while checks were made. The epicentre of the natural disaster was in the northern part of the prefecture, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

Patient passing produced an opportunity for Gueye, albeit his 20-yard strike took a huge deflection off Cionek to wrong-foot Poland goalkeeper Szczesny. As Poland pushed for an equaliser, Khadim Ndiaye dived to his left to parry Lewandowski's free kick, and Piszczek put an open shot into the side net in the 56th. The Senegal midfielder passed to Gueye, whose right-footed shot from the arc headed toward Szczesny's far post.

Then came an unusual goal.

With another Polish move breaking down, Krychowiak, who did not cover himself in glory while on loan at West Brom last season, looped a back-pass in the general direction of Southampton's Jan Bednarek, just on as a substitute.

Senegal were able to hold on in the final few minutes, despite some late Poland pressure, to get their World Cup campaign off to a dream start.

Poland were widely expected to qualify for the knockout rounds but after suffering a seventh loss in their last nine World Cup matches, FIFA's eighth-ranked team are in danger of making an early exit.

The match was played at red-and-white Otkritie Arena, the 4-year-old home of Spartak Moscow, where Alexander Rukavishnikov's 25m bronze statue of Spartacus rises high. "We did do better in the second half - but not enough".
