Senegal 0-2 Netherlands LIVE! Klaassen goal – World Cup 2022 match stream, latest score and updates today

20

The World Cup action continues in Qatar this afternoon with a second Group A clash in Doha. The Al-Thumama Stadium is the venue for a potentially crucial early meeting between Senegal and the Netherlands, who many believe will both eventually seal qualification for the last-16. But Ecuador laid down their own marker in yesterday’s opening fixture, easing to victory over the hosts thanks to captain Enner Valencia.

Senegal’s hopes of repeating their 2002 exploits have been significantly hampered by the absence of Sadio Mane, their superstar forward ruled out for the tournament with his calf injury suffered on club duty for Bayern Munich requiring surgery. The champions of Africa boast plenty of other attacking threats and a strong squad full of players from Europe’s major leagues, with Krepin Diatta getting the nod in Mane’s place.

Dutch boss Louis van Gaal has injury problems of his own in his side’s first World Cup outing since beating Brazil in the third-place play-off back in 2014, with Memphis Depay only a substitute and goalkeeper Andries Noppert handed his debut.
