FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup: Senegal, Egypt eliminated in group stage upset


Senegal and Egypt bid farewell to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup following their early exits from the group stages in the United Arab Emirates. Representing Africa after their triumphs in the CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations, Senegal and Egypt couldn’t replicate their continental success on the global stage.

Egypt faced tough challenges, succumbing to defeats against hosts UAE and Italy before showing resilience in a narrow loss to the USA. Despite their efforts, they couldn’t secure a spot in the knockout phase.

Senegal, the reigning African champions, showed promise by bouncing back from an initial loss to Belarus with a convincing win against Colombia. However, their hopes were dashed in a closely contested match against Japan, marking the end of their World Cup journey.

Looking ahead, the COSAFA region is gearing up to host its Beach Soccer Championship, with details on dates, venues, and participating nations to be announced soon. The championship presents an opportunity for teams to showcase their skills and compete for regional glory, following the success of the last edition held in Durban, South Africa in 2022.
