Match Report:

Senegal became the first African team to win a match at the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday when they beat Poland 2:1, helped by two shocking errors in the European side's defence.

Poland defender Thiago Cionek stuck out a leg and deflected Idrissa Gueye's wayward shot into the net in the 37th minute before goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny rushed unnecessarily out of his area and allowed M'Baye Niang to nip in and score into an empty net on the hour.

Grzegorz Krychowiak headed Poland's goal in the 86th minute.

The win took Senegal top of Group H with three points, along with Japan who also beat Colombia by the same score. Colombia and Poland are both without a point.

Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia all lost their opening games.
