Senegal took the lead in the 44th minute with a penalty won and converted by Watford’s Ismaila Sarr, clumsily shoved by Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Piero Hincapie.

Ecuador, who only needed a draw to reach the round of 16, equalized through Moises Caicedo. But Koulibaly restored the lead to the Senegalese three minutes later, and they managed to hold on full time.

One of the highlights of the game came in the 82nd minute when the camera turned to the crowd and caught a Moroccan fan dancing with a large group of Senegalese fans.

Social media had a field day with the very wholesome viral music video.

“The beauty of football,” commented one Twitter user.

“I love seeing it,” replied a second.

“That’s football,” said a third.

The African champions finished second in Group A with six points from three games, behind group winners Netherlands and ahead of Ecuador – whose frustrating tournament ended in bitter disappointment.

“A lot of people didn’t believe in us,” said striker Koulibaly, who paid tribute to Sadio Mane, their star striker who was dropped from the squad on the eve of the tournament.

“When he got injured, two-thirds of the world doubted whether we would qualify. Only those in Africa believed it.

“We are a family, a well-oiled machine and we wanted to give that back to the Senegalese people. We are in the last 16 and now we can really get down to business.
