Senegal makes history after beating Brazil

Senegal on Tuesday night made history after beating Brazil in a friendly match at Lisbon.

Mane with brace

The defending African Cup of Nations (AFCON) Champions came from behind to beat Brazil 4-2.

A brace from Sadio Mane and a goal from Habib Diallo, and an own goal from Brazilian defender Marquinhos ensured Senegal defeated Brazil.


Following the outcome of the match, Senegal became the first team to come from behind to beat Brazil in 11 years.

Aside from Senegal coming from behind to beat Brazil, it was also the first time Brazil had lost by two goals since they were beaten 2-0 by Chile back in 2015.

Also, Brazil had not conceded four or more in a match since they were humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup semi-finals.
