Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Okocha has commended Senegal for their 3-1 win over Qatar in Friday’s 2022 World Cup.
The African champions bounced back from the 2-0 defeat to the Netherlands in their first game with an encouraging victory at the Al Thumama Stadium.
Speaking on Supersports, Okocha stated he’s delighted African team have picked their first three points at the tournament.
“Finally we’ve gotten our our first win as Africans at the World Cup. It was a good win, well deserved,” Okocha said on SuperSport.
“They had a bit of hiccup after conceding that goal but I thought they controlled the match, and they were lucky coming up against Qatar, who I think do not have enough to really punish this Senegalese team when they make mistakes.
“Credit to Senegal for getting their first win.”
Senegal will face Ecuador in their final group game.
