Portugal defeated Senegal 4-2 and qualified for the semi-final of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Paraguay 2019.
Senegal’s defender Mamadou Sylla brought the African champions to the top corner with a thundering finish. Jordan responded with a salvo to give the Portuguese the answer they needed, and finally, it proved crucial.
An own goal by Lansana Diassy, a Le Martins tap-in backed up by his brother Be Martins, and a free-kick from the latter made Portugal run away with the win. Raoul Mendy scored a late consolation goal.
Mario Narciso’s side reached the semi-finals after beating the Bahamas two years ago at this stage, while Senegal did not advance to the final four places for the fourth time (2007, 2011, 2017 and 2019).
