The African champions have shown other African countries the way after becoming the first team to register a win at the FIFA World Cup.

The FIFA World Cup, Qatar 2022, has entered a crucial stage, with round two of games in the group stage.

Despite an interesting late win for Iran, entertainment has taken a backseat now as teams cautiously look to preserve their World Cup status in Qatar.

Senegal emerges Pulse of the Day

Africa's first win at the FIFA World Cup has arrived and it came at the expense of the host, Qatar, via the continent's biggest hope in the competition, its champions, Senegal.

Following a winless opening round of matches, with Ghana saving our blushes, in terms of goals on the last day of the round, the gate of success has been opened for the motherland.

It was only fitting that African champions, the Teranga Lions, will get the continent's first win in Qatar.

The Lions roared back to life after the error-filled defeat to the Netherlands in the first game on Friday.

Senegal suffered a heartbreak in their opener.

Our Lions proved to be too good for the home side, Qatar, after a 3-1 win to revive their World Cup dreams.

In the absence of talisman, Sadio Mane, Senegal finally found their way on the pitch. Two first-half goals from Famara Diedhiou and Ahmadou Bamba Dieng propelled the Teranga Lions to their first win of the competition.

Boulaye Dia had put them on the road to freedom when he fired the Lions ahead in the first-half before Diedhiou doubled the advantage three minutes into the second-half.

Qatar battled their way back when Mohammed Muntari pulled one back 12 minutes from time.

Sadio Mane is a big miss for Senegal, but the Teranga Lions are learning to find a way without their lionheart.

But the Lions bamba-ed their way to the decisive win when Dieng sealed it six minutes from time with the third goal.

A much-needed win for Africa gets the Pulse of the Day for day six.
