Doha> Three teams looking for pre-quarters. The Netherlands, Ecuador and Senegal. The fourth team, Qatar, was eliminated. The battle is for the first two places in Group A. Going into the last game of the group stage, the Netherlands are first with four points. Ecuador is second on goal difference with the same number of points. Senegal is third with three points. No points for Qatar.
The Netherlands’ opponents are Qatar. Senegal to Ecuador. Both games are at 8.30 pm.
The Netherlands hope to overcome Qatar and advance to the pre-quarters as group winners. If Cody Gakpo, who scored in the first two games, continues his scoring streak, the Netherlands can easily advance. Midfielder Frankie de Jong is in form. Qatar’s forward line is unlikely to be a challenge for Virgil van Dijk’s defence. The fact that they can progress even if they draw will boost the confidence of the Dutch army.
Ecuador can progress even if they draw against Senegal. The strength of Ecuador is the captain Enner Valencia, who is leading the battle for the golden foot with three goals. He entered the field in the last game without a knee injury. Pervis Estupinan and Gonzalo Plata provide excellent support for the captain. Valencia and their team go to the last game of the group by drawing the strong Netherlands.
Senegal can progress if they beat Ecuador. Senegal, who lost the first match, kept their hopes alive by defeating Qatar.
