Netherlands vs Ecuador live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 Group A match

The stakes for the Group A match between co-leaders Netherlands and Ecuador could result in mathematical qualification to the round of 16 for the winner, depending on what happens at the start of the day.

Qatar and Senegal will start early on Friday and, if the match ends in a draw, the winner of the Netherlands-Ecuador will have a guaranteed place in the round of 16.

Both teams are in this position after winning their opening group match, each by a 2-0 scoreline. Two early goals from Enner Valencia in the first half defeated host nation Qatar. Meanwhile, the Netherlands made a late start against Senegal. Cody Gakpo went through with six minutes remaining and Davy Klaassen sealed the added-time goal.

The conversation before the game revolved around the health of each team’s top scorer. Memphis Depay can last 45 minutes, according to coach Louis van Gaal, as he continues his journey towards full fitness. Meanwhile, Ecuador have confirmed there are no injuries that would prevent captain Valencia from playing after he limped off with a knee problem at the weekend.
