Senegal football
The Senegal national football team (French: Équipe de football du Senegal) represents Senegal in men’s international football. Controlled by the Senegalese Football Federation, it is a member of both FIFA and Confederation of African Football (CAF). Nicknamed “the Lions of Teranga”, the team became the second African team to reach the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup after Cameroon in 1990, doing so in 2002 before losing to Turkey in extra time. Established in the early 1960s, the team have been regular competitors in the Africa Cup of Nations, where their best performances were runner-up to Cameroon in the 2002 edition in Mali, and to Algeria in the 2019 edition in Egypt. 2002 also saw Senegal compete at the FIFA World Cup for the first time and reach the quarter-finals, having defeated reigning champions France in the opening game. The team made their second World Cup appearance sixteen years later, where they were eliminated in the group stage against Japan based on fair play points.

The team qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup on 10 November 2017, with a 0–2 away win against South Africa. Ultimately, Senegal were knocked out in the group stage of the tournament after becoming the first team in FIFA World Cup history to be eliminated due to fair play tiebreaker rules. “This is one of the rules. We have to respect it,” said Cissé. “Of course, we would prefer to be eliminated another way. It’s a sad day for us but we knew these were the regulations.
