Ecuador 1-2 Senegal

Kalidou Koulibaly drove Senegal into the World Cup knockouts for the second time in their history with the win in Tuesday's thriller 2-1 over Ecuador. The Netherlands' raging victory over Qatar showed only a win would witness Senegal through to the knockouts from Group A, while Ecuador would have advanced with a draw. Senegal kicked off the scoring via Ismaila Sarr's penalty late goal in the first half, but in spite of managing to maintain Ecuador captain Enner Valencia silenced throughout, Brighton's Moises Caicedo equalised in the 67th minute before Koulibaly came to rescue his team and sent Ecuador home.

Supposedly inspired into life by Senegal's rash opening, Ecuador propelled ahead 
and clinched a free-kick 30 metres from goal, with the South Americans taking the chance for a rare breather before Valencia struck the ball into the wall.
