Qatar vs Senegal live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 Group A match

Qatar and Senegal will face off in what is expected to be a dramatic Group A match in which the loser could potentially be eliminated from contention at the end of the day.

Both nations lost their opening match by a score of 2-0, although Senegal’s performance against the Netherlands undoubtedly deserved a better result. The African champions dominated the match for long stretches but failed to exploit their chances with the absence of the injured Sadio Mane looming.

Host nation Qatar, meanwhile, put in as disastrous a performance as possible for a national team that had been preparing for over 10 years to impress the world on their home turf. It was clear that despite all the preparation, nerves got to them and they never really kicked it in.

There will be no time for apologies on Friday as the fate of both teams in the World Cup likely hinges on their ability to get all three points.

It will be fascinating to see what changes Qatar coach Felix Sanchez makes as he tries to save face in this World Cup tournament. There are reports that the first change may come to the goalkeeper, where Meshaal Barsham could replace Saad Al Sheebwho fought hard against Ecuador.

For all his experience, fantasist Hasan Al-Haydos he was another player who struggled to match the physicality and speed of the Ecuador team. Bringing him off the bench in a must-win game against Senegal could be justified if Qatar chase after the game.

After both teams lost their opener, just one win will suffice here, especially for hosts Qatar, who have the prospect of facing number 8 the Netherlands on the final day of the group.

Senegal will start the game at Al Thumama Stadium as favourites, especially after putting in a strong performance against the Netherlands despite failing to score in a 2-0 defeat. Qatar lost by the same score but looked overwhelmed by the moment and had something to prove.
