Published

Senegal is back to the World Football party after 2002 in Japan/Korea. The Teranga Lions have missed the last four editions since they last turned up.

The road to qualifying for Russia was not easy as they had to do so under the strain of having to appeal a match result against South Africa after a bad refereeing call.



World football governing body, FIFA, agreed to cancel that South Africa result and the Sadio Mane-led team returned to win the match and all but secure their slot in Russia.

The team led by Aliou Cisse, who captained the Lions in 2002, scaled the second round of qualifiers beating Madagascar 5 – 2 over two legs. Senegal was subsequently pooled into a qualification group that included: South Africa, Cape Cerde and Burkina Faso.

Senegal are in Group H at the World Cup, they will face Poland on June 19 in Moscow before playing Japan and Colombia. On the pitch, the team will look to draw inspiration from Liverpool star forward Sadio Mane – who has had a good season with his club.

WhatsApp, which has around 1.5 billion users, has been trying to find ways to stop misuse of the app, following global concern that the platform was being used to spread fake news, manipulated photos, videos without context, and audio hoaxes, with no way to monitor their origin or full reach.

The app’s end-to-end encryption allows groups of hundreds of users to exchange texts, photos and video beyond the purview of independent fact checkers or even the platform itself.
