World Cup: Jubilation As Koulibaly’s 1st International Goal Sends Senegal to Round of 16
Kalidou Koulibaly, a defender for Chelsea, came through for Senegal on Tuesday, November 29, as his first international goal gave the African champions a 2-1 victory over Ecuador.
Thanks to Koulibaly, who distinguished himself as a deserving captain of his national team, Senegalese supporters around the world are currently celebrating their victory over Ecuador.
Senegal's athletes knew going into this match that they needed to win in order to advance to the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which is currently taking place in Qatar.
Contrarily, Ecuador only required a draw to qualify, but they failed to do so when playing a more tenacious Senegalese team.
Initially, who made the score?
Senegal played well to start the game and didn't score their first goal until the 44th minute through Ismaila Sarr, but Ecuador tied the score in the 67th minute through Caicedo.
In the 70th minute, Kalidou Koulibaly gave his team the lead against the opposition, and that goal ended up being the game-winning goal.
As it stands, Senegal finished second with six points in Group A behind the Netherlands.
