Here are the games that caught our eye at the biggest football fiesta in the past week...
#1 Senegal cage Poland in Moscow
The Teranga Lions got off to a winning start in Russia with a 2-1 victory over Poland by becoming the first African country to win a match. Aliou Cisse's men showed more hunger and confidence than their European opponents to clinch their first victory on the global stage since their last appearance in 2002. Thiago Cionek’s own goal and M’baye Niang effort handed the West Africans victory, with a late Grzegorz Krychowiak effort a mere consolation.
#2 Croatia conquered
It was a rare thought in the minds of most that Croatia would progress beyond the three games this summer. Not only do Zlatko Dalic's side progress, they achieved the feat defeating a Lionel Messi-led La Albiceleste 3-0. They now have six points. Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland battle for the one other spot.
#3 Peak Moment in Russia

#4 Super Eagles soar in Volgograd
The three-time African champions put in a decent shift after their opening game loss to Croatia, to beat Iceland 2-0 at the Volgograd Arena on Friday. Forward Ahmed Musa gave the African nation hope of qualifying to the next round with his brace in the second half.
