Senegal, having gotten all the way to the quarter-finals this past week, lost to Mexico, who is now geared to face Brazil in the finals. However, Senegal was able to make two goals against Mexico, who up to that point had not been scored on. The second half of the game was very intense with teams making goals back and forth, but Mexico was able to take advantage of a few defensive errors, which gave them a 2-shot lead before the end of the game.
Senegal is competing in a few of the different events in the Olympics this year, but their soccer team was by for the most successful. As Senegal’s infrastructural continues to grow and greater economic stability is brought to its region, hopefully its chances in the Olympic games continue to improve as well.
