It was an incredible match, by two good teams. I totally agree with the last sentence of the article: Senegal was clearly better than the Swiss. Siwtzerland was just lucky on those two own goals to get the match 8-6, and than it was a silly foul from Senegal giving the 8-7 goal. Well, both teams will fight a lot in this group, and I'm really impressed with Senegal. I've watched them in the qualifiers, but they seem a lot better now!
