The World Cup Qatar 2022 already put first this Sunday with the traditional opening ceremony and the inaugural match between the local team and Ecuador, which they won 2-0. From this Monday, the ball rolls non-stop, because the action of the rest of the groups and of this one will continue without truce of which Qatar and Ecuador are part, the A. The other two protagonists of the area are presented: Senegal and the Netherlands.
With different realities, but the same objective, to move forward. Senegal arrives as the Champion of Africa, a historic event for his nation, but with a blow at the last moment that could well influence the collective performance. Sadio Mané’s injury, Bayer Munich man and main figure of the ‘Lions of Teranga’, who had to get out of the competition because he did not recover in time. The absence of the best African soccer player is a jab to the jaw for the aspirations of his team, which faces the third World Cup participation.
in front will be Netherlands, under Louis van Gaal, the tough-minded coach who gives him hope after reaching the semifinals at Brazil 2014. The Dutch represent one of the most impressive soccer schools in history, but paradoxically they were never able to lift the World Cup. They were finalists four times and on two more occasions they advanced to the key of four. However, the dream remains elusive.
In addition, thanks to Virgil van Dijk, one of the best defenders in the world, and one of the stars of the same level as Memphis Depay (he will not play due to injury) and Frenkie de Jong, The Dutch want to reverse the bad image they left at Euro 2021when they were eliminated at the hands of the Czech Republic in the round of 16.
The meeting between Africans and Europeans can be seen live on DSports, DeporTV and Public TV. It will also be available online on the digital platforms DGO, Flow, Telecentro Play, TyC Sports Play and Count, although in the case of the first three it is required to be a customer to tune in to the channels.
