Senegal made it three wins out of three on match-day 3 in the group stage of the 2016 Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations after overpowering Libya 10-2 in a Group B match on Thursday,Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Lansana Diassy was the star of the game as he scored four goals to help Senegal with the resounding win.

He also bagged the Pepsi Man of the Match award.

Other scorers for Senegal were Mamadou Sylla and Gorgui Faye, Hamidou Barry and Babacar Fall.

Zuheir Elmengawi and Mohammed Jilwal got Libya's goals.

Senegal got off to the best start as Diassy put them 2-0 ahead in the third and seventh minute in the first period.

Libya got back into the game in the first minute of the second period with Elmengawi pulling a goal back for them to make it 2-1.

But two quick goals from Diassy and Sylla restored Senegal's two goal lea, putting them 4-1 ahead in sixth and seventh minute.

With less than five minutes left in the second period, Diassy and Faye scored to give Senegal a 6-1 lead.

And in the last seconds of the second period, Jilwal was on target making it 6-2 before the end of that period.

Any hopes of a comeback for Libya in the third period was wiped out as Senegal pulled away, scoring four more goals through Fall, Barry (brace) and Sylla, to secure the comfortable win.
