Senegal is an African nation that has proven to be different from the five African teams that lost in their first round.
Their case is unique for a reason.
With no fanfare, colourful jersey and embellished advertisements, the teams showed that coordination and resilience are ingredients to a successful outcome.
What is more?
Out of the 32 teams (including the four other African countries) playing to clinch the World Cup, Senegal is the only country with a black coach.
42-year-old Aliou Cisse is the youngest coach at Russia and has distinguished his team as having the resilient spirit of the African man.
After the win which ended in 2-1 victory against Poland African from different nations took to social platform Twitter to react:
