In pictures, World Cup highlights (Day 14): Senegal suffer yellow heartache, Tunisia claim first World Cup win in 40 years
Published in Ahram Online on 28 - 06 - 2018

Senegal eliminated due yellow cards
A first in World Cup history: Senegal have been eliminated from the World Cup due to their poor disciplinary record. Senegal and Japan finished the group with four points and an identical record in all other respects. Yet the Asian side ended in second position having picked up four yellow cards to Senegal's six. It was the first time in World Cup history that two teams had been separated by the amount of yellow cards they had accrued in the tournament.

Iranian striker retires due to online bullying
Iran forward Sardar Azmoun said he is quitting the national team at the age of 23 after being heavily attacked on social media. Azmoun was the target of numerous attacks on social media after failing to score in any of Iran's three group matches at the World Cup. Azmoun said his mother had been recovering from a serious illness, but the insults caused it to flare up again. Between football and his mother, he wrote on Instagram that ''I chose my mother.''

Africa's poor record
With Senegal losing to Colombia 1-0, all the five African teams have been eliminated from the first round of the World Cup. It is the first time since 1982 that Africa won't have any teams in the knock out stages. In Brazil 2014, Nigeria and Algeria made it to the round of 16.
