June 11, 2018

GROEDIG, Austria (AP) Senegal scored two second-half goals to beat fellow World Cup contender South Korea 2-0 and end a four-match winless streak on Monday in its final warmup.

South Korea defender Kim Young-gwon deflected an effort by Alfred N'Diaye into his own goal in the 67th minute, and striker Moussa Konate added the second from the penalty spot in injury time to give Senegal its first win since beating South Africa in November.

Senegal opens its World Cup campaign against Poland next week Tuesday before taking on Japan and Colombia in Group H.

South Korea, which has scored only once in its last three warmups, will play Sweden, Mexico and Germany in Group F.
