The beginning of the second period is Equatorial Guinea, with a clear domination. They are denied a penalty after the visualization of the VAR, on a hand of the Senegalese captain Kalilou Koulibaly. By dint of playing in the opposing camp, they will eventually score the equalizer through Buyla (57′), served by Ganet. Feeling his team a little feverish, Aliou Cissé will bring Cheikhou Kouyate and Dieng. Changes that will pay off because C.
