The Qatari team, the hosts of the FIFA World Cup, was knocked out of the group stage after losing for the second time in a row, this time against the Senegalese team with a goal to three, at Al-Thumama Stadium in the Qatari capital, Doha.
Senegal, the African champions, revived their hopes by winning the first three points, to temporarily level with the Ecuadorian team, which defeated Qatar 2-0 in the opening match.
Defender Khokhi Boualem made a mistake in clearing the ball four minutes before the end of the first half, allowing striker Boulay Dia to score past goalkeeper Meshal Barchem.
The Qatari national team suffered another blow at the beginning of the second half, when Mara Didio doubled the score with a header after a corner kick, so that the Qatari national team player woke up late, and they could have reduced the difference from several attempts by Abdul Karim Hassan, Al-Moez Ali and Ismail Muhammad, but Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy shone brilliantly in repelling all attempts.
Muntari managed to give Qatar the first goal in its first participation in the World Cup with a perfect header after a pass 12 minutes from the end, but substitute Bamba Diang easily turned a cross into the net to add the third goal in the 84th minute and eliminate Qatar's hopes in a late equalizer.
