During Senegal and the Netherlands’ 2022 FIFA World Cup Group A match, there was a “coming-together,” but Cheikhou Kouyate didn’t find it humorous.
Frenkie De Jong, the master of the Dutch midfield, unintentionally made contact with Kouyate’s privates as the Lions of Teranga midfielder leapt to head the ball. To make matters worse, Kouyate had to be replaced because it appeared like he had strained a muscle in the back of his leg.
After eluding Édouard Mendy to a high cross in the 84th minute, striker Cody Gakpo would later score the game’s first goal.
England thrashed Iran 6-2 in the first game of the day between the two countries. Ecuador defeated hosts Qatar 2-0 in the tournament’s opening game yesterday; both teams will play Senegal and the Netherlands in the same group.
