Sky News showed how Senegal people in the UK celebrated and danced on the streets
In Senegal, people are reported to celebrate and party all over, the schools are closed, nobody is working. This is so big in Senegal. One Senegalese also said in an interview that the victory was especially sweet since Senegal had previously invited France to play a friendly, but the French refused and said they'd rather play Algeria.
What a great victory for this smallest of the WC countries
I certainly think France will go on from their group despite today's loss, but the presure on them is higher now since they probably must win both of the remaining games against Denmark and Uruguay, and they are by no means bad football teams.
@HLD: I've made all my text white now, to avoid feeling like a T' impersonator
@Moleman: France should perhaps rethink regarding both LeBeuof and Petit. IMO they both looked slow today.
@Karembeu: I agree, an unusually good opening game. Like you, I was surprised by the French dominance, Senegal had obviously decided to play a defensive game based on counterattacks. France was however brilliant at moments, but, as we all know, you need ot score.
As a big fan of African football, I'm of course looking forward to Kameroon-Ireland tomorrow, I just wish it wasn't 8:30 am here when the match starts...
