The Netherlands took all three points as they beat Senegal 2-0 at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on Monday

In the 84th minute, Cody Gacpo made an excellent display in the Senegalese defense, responded to De Jong’s cross and headed home from the edge of the 6-yard box to score the first goal for Senegal. A goal is aimed on the first try.

The Netherlands doubled their score in the 99th minute of extra time with a superb goal from Davy Klaassen.

The first half ended in a stalemate, with both sides struggling to find their footing. Frenkie de Jong came closest, but the Dutch midfielder was unable to take advantage of the golden chance Coady Gapko offered him. He tried to cut in but failed and wasted chances to shoot, leaving only Mendy in goal.

Although Senegal played beautifully and kept the goal until the 86th minute, they still failed to force the Netherlands into a stalemate and regain a point.

Senegal star Sadio Mane missed the World Cup last month due to an injury sustained in a club game.
