Summary

Image result for Senegal break jinx, beat Poland 2-1

Poland midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak scored a goal but made a costly error as Senegal began their World Cup campaign with victory.

With Senegal ahead through a first-half own goal by Thiago Cionek, Krychowiak played a high, aimless backpass that striker M’Baye Niang controlled ahead of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny before tapping into an empty net.

Poland are the highest-ranked side in Group H at number eight in the world, but struggled to create further chances with a free-kick from captain Robert Lewandowski one of just four shots on target.

Senegal, making only their second World Cup appearance, join Japan who beat Colombia earlier on Tuesday on three points at the top of the group.
