Senegal Qualifies for 2022 World Cup

Senegal became the first team through to Africa’s play-offs for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar by beating Namibia 3-1 on Tuesday.

Turkey-based forward Famara Diedhiou was the hero, outshining Sadio Mane and others as he scored once in the first half and twice in the second to register his second hat-trick for Senegal.

Peter Shalulile sent a low shot into the back of Edouard Mendy’s net after Diedhiou’s headed opener to give the Namibians brief hope of holding on against the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations runners-up.

Diedhiou restored Senegal’s lead with another header and, after the Brave Warriors had hit the bar, the Alanyaspor man tapped in Mane’s cross to seal victory.
