The first match of preparation of the “Lions” of Teranga has seen no accomplishments and has been very poor in opportunities. In the Face of a team Luxembougeoise curled up in his zone, Senegal has not found the path of the nets.

Without the attacker of Liverpool Sadio Mane, at rest after his big performance in the final of the champions League on Saturday, the Senegal has remained silent to the Lexembourg this Thursday (0-0) for its first friendly match of preparation for the world Cup. Ismaila Sarr and Mbaye Niang have not been able to convert their many opportunities.

After a first-half dull in terms of opportunities and of content in the game, the two teams approached the second half of the match at the same tempo. A tempo that will change with the inputs of Cheikh Ndoye, Pape Alioune Ndiaye and Mame Biram Diouf. Mbaye Niang, dimly seen in 1st period, has delivered a much better performance in the 2nd.

The match will be settled on the score of zero goal everywhere even though Senegal has hit the post twice and the crossbar with a free-kick from Mbaye Niang.

The Senegalese compete now Croatia on June 8 and South Korea on the 11th, before the start of the world Cup on June 19, in the face of Poland.
