Mohammed Muntari scored host nation Qatar’s first-ever World Cup goal during its second Group A match against Senegal at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha on Friday.

Mohammed Muntari scored Qatar’s first-ever World Cup goal during its second Group A match against Senegal, which the host nation lost 1-3, at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha on Friday.

Qatar was trailing 0-2 after strikes from Boulaye Dia and Famara Diedhiou for Senegal. However, Muntari slotted the ball past Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy into the back of the net in the 78th minute to keep host nation’s hopes of a win alive but six minutes later, Cheikh Dieng scored the third goal for Senegal to seal the victory.

Qatar, making its World Cup debut, lost 0-2 to Ecuador in its tournament opener on November 20, 2022. If Netherlands does not lost to Ecuador in the other Group A match on Friday, the host nation will be out of the race for the knockout stage even before its final group fixture against the Dutch team.
