Senegal women’s national team on Tuesday progressed to the next round of the 2022 Africa women’s Cup of nations qualifiers after humiliating Liberia 6-0 (aggregate 8-1) at the Stade Lat Diop in Thies Senegal.

The Senegalese had an easy ride as they fired home the opening with just three minutes down the clock, courtesy of Eva Diakhate’s tip in to record her third consecutive goal in three games against Liberia.

After conceding an early goal, Coach Robert Lartey made two early substitutions in the 23rd minute by introducing defenders Loretta Sackie and Lucy Massaquoi.

Unfortunately, things seem to have gotten worse. The Senegalese continued from where they stopped by scoring the second goal in the 29th minute through striker Nguenar Ndiaye's placement in the bottom right-corner of Liberia goal post.

The second goal also resulted in another substitution for Liberia. Goalkeeper Komassah Sumo who was handed a starting role was replaced by Massa Konneh.

With two minutes plus added time left to end the first half, striker Ndiaye managed to score two goals in four minutes to complete her hat trick, ending the first half 4-0.

Despite the expectation from Liberia’s angle to perform better than the first-leg; the female Lone Star struggled as they made fewer attempts on goal.

The remaining two goals came in the 58th and 63rd when Mama Diop scored both through headers.

Senegal will now face Mali, who eliminated Guinea in the next round of the qualifiers.
