2018 World Cup 

Result: Senegal 0-1 Colombia

Date: 28 June 2018

Venue: Cosmos Arena

Africa will have no representatives in the knockout stages at the 2018 World Cup after Senegal lost 1-0 to Colombia to finish third in Group H.

The game's first real effort at at goal arrived after 12 minutes, with Colombia's Quintero forcing goalkeeper Khadim N'Diaye into fine save with a curling free-kick.

Senegal looked to have earned themselves a penalty when the referee pointed to the spot after Sadio Mane went down under the challenge of Davidson Sanchez.

However, after consultation with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), the referee decided to reverse his decision and did not award the spot-kick.

There was a blow for Colombia on 31 minutes as Jose Pekerman was forced to withdraw James Rodriguez for Lucas Muriel due to an injury.

Senegal dominated possession in the remaining stages of the first half, but they were unable to carve out a chance as the sides went into the break goalless.

The South Americans came out firing in the second half as they went search of an opening goal which they desperately needed, although clear-cut chances were hard to come by.

Colombia eventually took the lead on 75 minutes as defender Yerry Mina bagged his second goal of the campaign with a fine header.

The Lions of Teranga nearly hit back straight away by Ospina showed his worth to deny M'Baye Niang with a fine save from close range.

Senegal threw everything forward in search of an equaliser that see them progress to the next round

However Colombia remained resolute at the back to secure the win and a spot in the Last 16, while Senegal are eliminated.

With Japan and Senegal posting an identical goal-difference and goal scored, the latter progressed via the Fair Play rule, having accumulated less yellow cards than the African nation.

@Munangwangwa I agree, but as you know all things take time.......it will happen and the clear bias against African teams will also change............eventually. From our side we also need to do introspection: Why do we continue to determine our own self-worth by the way others(western world) view us? Why do so many African stars choose not to represent their own countries at the highest level........but at the moment I think self-believe is one of our main obstacles.............

Africa will never be equally represented until we have same number of teams representing aĺl continents of the world... this is European world cup not world cup.all continents should have equal number of teams and until then this is a joke

I'm not surprised at all,Senegal were not ready for the world cup.they needed a rematch in oder for them to qualify and Fifa had to hear their cry and give them what they want coz Fifa couldn't afford to disappoint Mane and his Liverpool fans who were moaning after their los to Bafana....nazokeeee.

Various angles revision make football boring it they analyse even tiniest details in normal referring that incident of Colombia defender pinching a ball in front of that Senegalese striker resulting in misunderstanding whether was a foul or not without var it was a clear penalty now the referee has a chance to revisit such incidences and take final decision after
