Senegal's young Lions of Teranga exited the Fifa Under-20 World Cup in South Korea on Thursday after a 1-0 defeat to Mexico.

A goal in the 89th minute from substitute Ronaldo Cisneros was the difference between the two sides in Incheon.

The West Africans finished the game a man down following Alioune Gueye's expulsion for a second bookable offence after 71 minutes.

Senegal also went into the match without two key players - defenders Cavin Diagne and Souleymae Aw - who were both suspended.

Mexico will now face England in the quarter-finals on 5 June in Cheonan.
