Fans in the Senegalese capital of Dakar were happy with their country's 1-1 draw with Denmark.

Most supporters conceded Denmark's 15th minute penalty was justified, as was Salif Diao's expulsion.

But despite worries that Denmark might have won the game, there was general satisfaction with the result.

"It was a draw, but I think you could say we won," said Abdou Fatou Thiam.

"Denmark started well but did nothing to develop their game. They created few chances. We kept them pegged back. We just lacked a bit when it came to finishing."

Hassan Saow, a footballer in the local league, said the soaring temperatures in Korea worked in Senegal's favour.

"It was very hot, very physical, but the sun was more difficult for the Danes."

Hassan Diaow, another supporter, said the Lions need to quicken their pace if they are to stay in the World Cup.

"Uruguay play like Africans. They are very tough and fast. We would need to be at our best against them."
