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

Qatar and Senegal will be facing off in what should be a dramatic Group A match in which the loser could potentially be eliminated from contention by the time the day is done.

Both nations lost their opening match by a 2-0 score, although Senegal’s performance against the Netherlands was arguably deserving of a better outcome. The African champions bossed the game for large stretches, but failed to convert on their chances with the absence of injured star Sadio Mane looming large.

Host nation Qatar, meanwhile, put forth as disastrous a showing as was possible for a national team that had been preparing for over 10 years for the moment to impress the world on its own home soil. It was clear that despite all the preparation the nerves got to them and they never got in the game.

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

Qatar vs Senegal live updates, highlights from the 2022 World Cup

30 minutes from kickoff: Senegal looking at it; they can’t afford to drop more points here.

45 minutes from kickoff: No real surprise to see a change in goal for the hosts, Saad Al-Sheeb making way for Meshaal Barsham after an erratic display against Ecuador. For Senegal, meanwhile, Edouard Mendy keeps his place between the sticks despite plenty of criticism for his part in the two Netherlands’ goals.

Also for Senegal Farmara Diedhiou replaces Cheikhou Kouyate with Ismail Jakobs coming into defense. Iliman Ndiaye and Pape Matar Sarr are options from the bench if the game remains goalless.

55 minutes from kickoff: Teams are IN! Here’s how the two sides line up for this one:

1 hr 5 from kickoff: Not long to go until official team news drops. Will the hosts make big changes from their opening defeat? Will Edouard Mendy keep his place in goal for Senegal? All should be revealed shortly…

1 hr 20 from kickoff: Not many better views than this one today.

1 hr 40 from kickoff: Inside the Senegal dressing room at the Al Thumama Stadium. Looking good!

2 hrs from kickoff: With the game fast approaching, the Senegal players have been relaxing with a pre-match stroll. Hope they didn’t walk too far!

2 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: The anticipation is building as we look ahead to the action at Al Thumama Stadium. There has been much said already about the support for the home side, after TV pictures showed empty seats towards the end of their opening loss to Ecuador, but these Qatar fans yesterday certainly seemed to be passionate enough!

3 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: There is so much on the line for the hosts in this one, as they seek to avoid becoming only the second team to hold the World Cup and exit at their own tournament in the first stage. South Africa in 2010 were the other one. Can they give the home fans something to cheer today?

4 hrs 45 mins from kickoff: There’s some buzz around Senegal’s Illiman Ndiaye and what he might be able to do if given the opportunity. We’ll see if he gets his third cap in this critical World Cup match.

5 hrs from kickoff: The reigning African champions Senegal were expected to be one of the top two to advance from Group A, but there’s another scenario that could see it miss out entirely, which would make for a fascinating trend.

Qatar vs Senegal lineups, team news

Qatar manager Felix Sanchez opts to change goalkeeper, where Meshaal Barsham filled in for Saad Al-Sheebwho struggled mightily against Ecuador.

Qatar (5-3-2, right to left): 22-Barsham (GK) — 2-Pedro Miguel, 17-Mohamad, 16-Khoukhi, 3-Hassan, 14-Ahmed — 10-Al-Haydos 12-Boudiaf, 23-Al Haj Madibo — 19-Ali, 11-Afif

Senegal have decided to stick with Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy in goal, although Cheikhou Kouyate is dealing with a muscle issue and starts on the bench, Farmara Diedhiou taking his place while Ismail Jakobs comes into defense.

Sheffield United’s 22-year-old Illiman Ndiayewho has nine goals in 21 matches in the English second tier this season and was seen as a potential replacement for Sadio Mane’s do-it-all attacking influence behind the forward, is again among the substitutes.

After both teams lost their opener, only a win will do here, especially for hosts Qatar, who have the prospect of facing the No. 8-ranked Netherlands in the final group matchday.

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