The coach of Poland, Adam Nawalka, was "surprised" at the circumstances that led to Senegal's decisive second goal in Wednesday's Group H clash. The football fans who cheered from the stadiums celebrated the win but also remembered to show humility after the match.
Niang pounced on the ball, rounded keeper Wojciech Szczesny and tapped the ball into the open net.
M'Baye Niang then took full advantage of a defensive mix-up from the Eagles to get his country's second goal on the hour, before Grzegorz Krychowiak pulled one back late on to set up a tense finish. Referee Nawaf Shukralla of Bahrain, a veteran of two World Cup matches in 2014, waved Niang to come back on just as Krychowiak lofted a backpass from the center circle.
"It was kind of curious".

Poland enjoyed plenty of the ball in the first half, but Robert Lewandowski was given very little service up front after several promising attacks down the left. "There were many different elements that contributed to the poor performance". Our wingers didn't do their jobs and the central midfielders weren't very good either. "We weren't dynamic or co-ordinated".
Poland shifted to a three-man backline at the start of the second half, and Senegal's Salif Sane got a yellow in the 49th for tripping Lewandowski from behind as this forward was running onto a through pass.

Senegal coach Aliou Cisse has given a tactical insight into their 2-1 victory over Poland in their World Cup opener on Tuesday.
Captain Cheikhou Kouyate, who started on the bench, said ahead of the match that they had been worked "like dogs" over the past weeks by Cisse, who said he was proud of his players. "We need to draw conclusions from those two goals and prepare carefully but we have a lot of stamina and strength and I'm convinced we will recuperate and regenerate".
