Egypt and Senegal stumble in FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup openers


In a disappointing start to their FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup campaign, both Egypt and Senegal stumbled in their opening matches, leaving fans eager for a resurgence in the coming fixtures.

Egypt kicked off their tournament journey with a tense encounter against the hosts, United Arab Emirates (UAE), on Thursday. Despite a valiant effort, the Egyptian squad found themselves on the wrong end of a narrow 2-1 defeat. Hossam Paulo’s late goal provided a glimmer of hope for the North African side, but it wasn’t enough to overturn the UAE’s early lead.

Meanwhile, African champions Senegal faced Belarus on Friday in a match that showcased their attacking prowess but ultimately ended in a 6-4 loss. Mandiane Diagne led the charge with a brace, supported by goals from Raoul Mendy and Amar Samb. Despite their efforts, Senegal couldn’t contain Belarus’s clinical finishing.

With their eyes set on redemption, Egypt prepares to take on Italy in their upcoming fixture on Saturday. The Egyptian team will be eager to bounce back and secure their first victory of the tournament.

Similarly, Senegal will look to regroup as they face Colombia in their next match, determined to showcase their championship pedigree on the sand.

As the competition heats up, both Egypt and Senegal will be aiming to turn their fortunes around and make a statement in the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup.
