Fans notice added detail on Senegal kit in Qatar win
Senegal had their kit modified in their win against Qatar.
Senegal secured their first win of the World Cup on Monday as they defeated host nation Qatar 3-1.
Two goals in seven minutes from Boulaye Dia and Famara Diedhiou put Senegal well in control.
Qatar did pull one back 12 minutes from time in a historic moment for the Gulf State as they scored their first-ever goal at a World Cup finals.
Their happiness was short-lived though as Senegal restored their two-goal advantage courtesy of Ahmadou Dieng six minutes later.
🇶🇦 1-3 🇸🇳
84' Any notions of a comeback are squashed by Dieng after a great run by Ndiaye

The defeat leaves Qatar rooted to the bottom of Group A and out of the competition.
However, others noticed a strange addition to Senegal's kit in their win on Monday.
Classic Football Shirts spotted extra detail in the middle of the shirt and compared the detail to the kit Aliou Cisse's side wore in their defeat to the Netherlands.

Puma, who are Senegal's kit manufacturers, have appeared to feature a print. Although it was unclear to see what the print made out, it appeared in the middle of the green, yellow and red strip (the colours of the Senegal flag) running across the shirt.
Classic Football Shirts also noticed that Morocco - whose kits are also made by Puma - didn't have any additional features on their shirts in their World Cup opener against Croatia while Brazil also did not feature any.
It is unknown if these are pre-planned additions or late additions made by the manufacturers.
