Poland vs Senegal latest score: LIVE updates from Group H World Cup clash | Daily Star
Senegal started their World Cup campaign in Russian Federation on a positive note as they picked up a surprising 2-1 victory over Poland in the Group F clash on Tuesday.
In a match billed as a straight fight between super-strikers Robert Lewandowski and Sadio Mane, neither scored but Liverpool striker Mane set up Idrissa Gueye for the shot that took a wicked deflection off Cionek, leaving Szczesny totally wrong-footed in the Polish goal for Senegal's opener on 37 minutes.
