They then pulled ahead in the last three minutes of the match and held on despite conceding a goal in the last minute, hanging on to beat the 14-time champions in extra time.

Raoul Mendy and goalkeeper Al Seyni Ndiaye were key figures in the win by the Teranga Lions.

Switzerland went on a rampage against Uruguay, putting 10 past the South Americans who only managed 1. Elsewhere, Japan were 5-4 winners over Tahiti, while hosts Russia beat Spain 4-2 in a hotly contested quarter-final encounter.

Senegal have been true giant-killers at this year’s event, beating first defending champions Portugal and now five-time kings Brazil – the most decorated team in the history of the competition.
