Senegal left it late to edge a tight contest against CAF Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations rivals Morocco on Tuesday - Fall’s double securing a 2-1 win in Group B.
Neither side found a breakthrough in the opening two periods but Fall conjured up two well-taken goals in the final 12 minutes, with Nassim’s late free—kick proving a consolation.
That theme continued after the restart until and into the final frame, with Senegal goalkeeper Seyni in particular impressing between the sticks.
And, at the other end, Fall’s instinctive close-range finish eventually broke the deadlock midway through the last period.
Nassim responded with a wayward free-kick but Fall proved too much to handle, as he latched onto a long throw and angled a strike past El Ouariry in the final stages.
Skipper Nassim’s late free-kick gave Morocco hope but it failed to inspire a fightback as Senegal did enough for the points.
Goals: 0-1: Fall min. 7 (3); 0-2: Fall, min. 0 (3); 1-2: Nassim, min. 0 (3)
