Qatar vs. Senegal World Cup 2022 live updates: Senegalese up by two after Dia, Diedhiou goals – The Athletic

Qatar let themselves down massively in their clash with Ecuador on Sunday which kicked off the tournament, falling to a 2-0 loss to the South American side.

Meanwhile, while suffering the same fate as the hosts, Senegal had a lot to be impressed with in their performance against the Netherlands on Monday.

This is a real opportunity for these two teams to take a big step towards potential qualification from Group A. However, at the same time, defeat for either team would all but end their hopes of making the last 16.

The Group A clash kicks off at 16:00 local time which means it will start at 13:00 in the UK and the coverage will be shown on BBC One.

In the US, FS1 and Telemundo will be showing the match and kick off is at 08:00 EST and 05:00 PT.

Senegal starting XI: Mendy, Koulibaly, Diallo, Jakobs, Sabaly, Mendy, Gueye, Diatta, Sarr, Dia, Diedhiou

Qatar starting XI: Barsham, Miguel, Hassan, Ahmed, Khouki, Mohamad, Alhaydos, Boudiaf, Madibo, Afif, Ali
