The Senegal national football group, nicknamed the Lions of Teranga, is the national group of Senegal and is controlled by the Fédération Sénégalaise de Football. It made its first FIFA World Cup appearance in 2002 and caused a colossal steamed at vanquishing World and European champions France 1– 0 in the competition's opening amusement.

Senegal in the long run achieved the quarter-finals of the 2002 World Cup, one of just three African groups to do as such (the first being Cameroon in 1990; the other being Ghana in 2010). In the gathering, in the wake of overcoming France, they drew with Denmark and Uruguay, and beat Sweden in additional time in the round of 16, preceding losing to Turkey in the quarter-finals.Senegal fit the bill for the 2018 World Cup in the wake of crushing South Africa 0-2 on 10 November 2017. This denotes Senegal's second capability to the World Cup in their history.

Senegal's first appearance in the Africa Cup of Nations was in 1965, when Senegal, in the wake of completing second in their gathering, lost 1– 0 to the Ivory Coast to complete in fourth place. In the 1990 Africa Cup of Nations, Senegal again completed fourth.

Senegal's best complete in the competition came in 2002, when they lost the last on a punishment shootout in the wake of drawing 0– 0 with Cameroon.

Senegal has won the Amilcar Cabral Cup, a provincial soccer competition for West African countries, eight times, more than some other nation, with Guinea in second place with five titles.

Early history

Senegal picked up its autonomy from France on 4 April 1960 . The Senegalese Football Federation (FSF) was established in 1960. The main authority match of Senegal occurred on December 31, 1961, outside, against Dahomey (current Benin), which finished with the Senegalese thrashing 2 objectives to 3. The Football Federation of Senegal (FSF) has been partnered with FIFA since 1962 and is an individual from the Confederation of African Football since 1963. He took an interest in any World Cup amid this period, yet partook 3 times to the African Nations Cup 1965 ( 4 th Place), 1968 and 1986 expulsion) in the first round. Senegal wins the Friendship Games in 1963. The greatest triumph of the Lions of the Teranga was acknowledged on October 9, 2010, at home against Mauritius. Senegal won 7 objectives to 0.


Amid this period, Senegal still can not meet all requirements for a World Cup, but rather figured out how to fit the bill for 4 of the 6 releases of the CAN, missing the versions of 1996 and 1998. In 1990, Senegal prevails out of the blue to pass the first round, completing second of the gathering. He tipped into equal parts against Algeria (1– 2) and in little last likewise against Zambia (0– 1). In 1992, Senegal sorted out the CAN . In the first round, Senegal completed second in his gathering however is beaten in the quarterfinals by Cameroon 0– 1, objective to the 89 th of Ernest Ebongué. In 1994, the Teranga Lions completed second in their gathering, however as in 1992, they are wiped out 1– 0 (objective to 39 th of Evans Sakala ) against Zambia . In 2000, Senegal completed second of the gathering, yet tilts in quarter against Nigeria (1– 2)

2002, the time of Senegal

The man who permitted to demonstrate the quality of the Senegal group at the global level in 2002 is the French mentor, Bruno Metsu . After splendid ends, Senegal fit the bill for its first World Cup by dispensing with Morocco, Egypt and Algeria . Amid the playoffs, the national star, El-Hadji Diouf, completed second scorer of the opposition with 9 objectives.

The Senegalese group had its day of wonder by achieving the quarter-finals of the 2002 World Cup. Having beaten in the opening match title holders France (1– 0, objective from Papa Bouba Diop ), drawing against Denmark (1– 1, objective from Salif Diao ) and Uruguay (3– 3, Khalilou Fadiga and 2 objectives from Papa Bouba Diop subsequent to driving 3– 0), at that point beating Sweden in the following cycle (2– 1, fixed with Henri Camara including a brilliant equalizer and an objective), Senegal made an incredible first interest in a World Cup. After this World Cup, in which the Senegalese squad had 21 players playing for French clubs, Diouf and Diao both joined Liverpool F.C. what's more, Fadiga joined Inter Milan.

Prior in 2002, Senegal lost in the African Cup last against Cameroon on punishments 2– 3 following 120 minutes of play. Amid the opposition, the Lions de la Teranga vanquished Egypt (1– 0), Zambia (1– 0), Tunisia (0– 0), Democratic Republic of Congo (2– 0) and Nigeria in the semi-last (2– 1 after additional time) before tumbling to the last.

The Lions Crisis (2007– 2010)

Senegalese fans at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations against Tunisia.

The joined capabilities for the 2010 CAN and the 2010 FIFA World Cup start. Senegal is in an extremely moderate gathering for this first qualifying round for the second round ( Algeria, Gambia, Liberia ). In any case, Senegal has an awful execution: he wins 1– 0 against Algeria, 2 draws against Gambia and Liberia (0– 0 and 2– 2) yet wins against Liberia (3– 2).

Mentor Lamine N'Diaye is incredibly scrutinized for non-choices of Mamadou Niang, Khalilou Fadiga who discovers shape in Belgium and Souleymane Diawara, he is likewise reprimanded for playing El Hadji Diouf in focus forward as he is Best as an afterthought and not to put a hostile medium to nourish the balloonless fronts (consequently the interest for Fadiga).

Somewhat like in France, all Senegalese need N'Diaye to leave, the organization considers it and a few names show up, similar to the previous selectors Abdoulaye Sarr, Bruno Metsu and others.

Senegal played a key match in Algeria on 5 September . Senegal scored the main objective, yet they scored 3 out of 12 minutes, they figured out how to diminish the score before the finish of the amusement (3– 2).

It is the emergency, Lamine N'Diaye needs to roll out an improvement for the last match against Gambia, the names of Niang, Khalilou Fadiga and Diawara return. Yet, the mentor endures, he chooses Khalilou Fadiga however indeed relinquishes Mamadou Niang and Souleymane Diawara, it would be players who might have "obliged" N'Diaye not to choose them.

On 11 October, Senegal played the last match against The Gambia. Whatever other outcome that a triumph would kill them, they should win to plan to be among the greatest second.

Khalilou Fadiga is adjusted, Senegal stamp the 65 th minute by Kader Mangane . Be that as it may, the Gambians are pushing, demanding, making openings and the unavoidable happens, the Gambians stamp 5 minutes from the end and Senegal neglects to score another objective. Last score: 1– 1.

This is the uproar in Senegal. The pitiful and irate supporters show around the Stadium Léopold Sédar Senghor . The zone around the stadium is secured with smoke, while Senegalese and Gambian players have been secured in the locker space inspired by a paranoid fear of torment the fans' outrage. Lamine N'Diaye crosses out his public interview. The portable mediation aggregate barely contain the youngsters who decline to return, and sit tight for players and specialized staff with stones.

Senegal did not meet all requirements for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and did not fit the bill for the 2010 CAN in Angola .

It is without a doubt the finish of an age that had shone in 2002, El-Hadji Diouf, Henri Camara, Khalilou Fadiga, Salif Diao, Habib Beye, Tony Sylva and others. This age which, as indicated by a few bits of gossip, chose who came in the choice or not.

Lamine N'Diaye is not any more beyond any doubt to remain a mentor, and the 2002 age could be supplanted. It is an extraordinary stun for Senegal that after 2002, never truly figured out how to affirm its situation as an incredible African. The Lions should hold up no less than 2 years to re-try official matches and to enhance the Senegalese escutcheon.

N'Diaye is expelled and Senegal is searching for another mentor. The names coming back with request are those of Ablaye Sarr and Amara Traoré . August 30, Augustin Senghor is chosen leader of the Senegalese Football Federation. El Hadji Diouf takes even global retirement, yet the news does not make numerous responses, some trusting it to be a joke (the declaration was hung on 1 st April 2009) or Diouf is as yet A hit to upbraid the terrible association of the alliance, Diouf reproves routinely the sloppiness in the nook. Senegal has two presentation recreations againstDemocratic Republic of Congo (triumph 2– 1) and Angola (1– 1). Note in the cave the arrival of Mamadou Niang and Souleymane Diawara (2 identities in strife with Diouf as indicated by the press that Niang has denied) and new faces ( Issiar Dia, Kader Mangane, Rémi Gomis, Cheikh Tidiane Ndiaye, Moussa Sow, Papiss Cissé , Jacques Faty, Demba Ba and others). The 2002 age appears to have vanished (regardless of whether an uncertainty holds on El-Hadji Diouf ).

In December 2009, Amara Traoré was named another lions mentor, with Abdoulaye Sarr and Mayacine Mar as aide mentor. Previous Lions Ferdinand Coly was named Coordinator of the national group. Another skilled wave appears to have arrived ( Mame Biram Diouf, Khouma Babacar, Rémi Gomis, Moussa Sow ...) and the craving of certain bi-nationals to play in Senegal instead of in France ( Jacques Faty, Édouard Cissé ...), Senegal appears to be at long last to revamp after this time of shortage and would like to frame a capable group in perspective of the CAN 2012 and 2014 and theSoccer World Cup 2014 . The previous star El-Hadji Diouf is prepared to come back to his best level to encourage the national group, the conclusions on the need of his arrival being exceptionally separated. In addition, it is soon the 2014 World Cup and the Senegal of General Amara Traore will attempt to qualify in light of the fact that the desire of Amara Traoré is to meet all requirements for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, with this gathering there Senegal can even go past that of 2002, now there are the Dame N'Doye, Moussa Sow, Demba Ba Papiss Cissé , Kader Mangane ...

An age of resurrection, however scarcely to be affirmed (2010– )

Senegal began a decent year 2010 under the Traoré period, which had 6 wins and 1 vanquish (Greece 2– 0, Denmark 0– 2, Cape Verde 1– 0, DR Congo 4– 2, Mauritius 7– 0, Gabon 2 - 1, Guinea 3– 0) the qualifiers for the CAN 2012 began in September 2010. Senegal, which shared its pool (Group 5) with Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo made a decent begin by beating the DR Congo (4– 2) in Lubumb ashi, with a triple of his skipper Mamadou Niang, the last marked a twofold multi month against Mauritius on October 8, 2010 in Dakar with the triple of Papis Demba Cissé and two different objectives (Moussa Sow and Demba Ba) to win 7 to 0, the greatest score in the cave of Leopold Sedar Senghor. On 26 March 2011,91 th minute on a focal point of Issiar Dia who changed the physiognomy of the match when it entered 5 minutes from the end.

On 9 October 2011, in Port Louis, Senegal played their last qualifying counterpart for CAN 2012, completing first in their gathering with 16 calls attention to of 18 conceivable with just 2 objectives yielded. Senegal is one of the top choices to go beyond what many would consider possible in this opposition with players, for example, Moussa Sow (Top scorer in Ligue 1 2010/2011), Papiss Cissé (second best scorer in the Bundesliga 2010/2011), Mamadou Niang, Demba Ba, Issiar Dia (Turkish champion in 2011) yet in addition guarded shakes, for example, Cheikh M'Bengue, Souleymane Diawara, Kader Mangane, Lamine Gassama, The neo-lion Armand Traoré great in his introduction in national group.
