After a win and a draw in Senegal's first two matches, Bruno Metsu has every reason to be pleased.

"What we have done so far is a real exploit," he said at the team's hotel in Daegu.

"At the beginning of the competition no-one would have believed we could beat France and draw with Denmark.

"Now we have to confirm our qualities against Uruguay, because getting into the second round would be magnificent for the team."

For Tuesday's decisive encounter with Uruguay, Metsu will have to do without Salif Diao.

The defender is on a one match suspension after receiving a red card against Denmark.

Injury worries

Metsu is also concerned that his captain, Aliou Cisse, might miss a second game through injury.

"I hope Aliou will be back, because if he is not that will mean we are missing two important elements."

Senegal's players are unlikely to face too many gruelling training sessions between now and Tuesday.

"We are going to work on recuperation, because we gave our all, physically and mentally, in the last two matches we have played so far."

A point against Uruguay would be enough to send the Lions through to the second round.

"We know what is left for us to do. Let's hope we do it," smiled Metsu.
