Netherlands vs Ecuador live: World Cup result, highlights, Group A match result 2022

The stakes for the Group A match between leaders Netherlands and Ecuador could include mathematical round of 16 qualification for the winner, depending on what happens earlier in the day.

Qatar and Senegal will start earlier on Friday and if this game ends in a draw, the winner of Netherlands against Ecuador will be guaranteed a place in the round of 16.

Both teams are in this position after winning their group opens 2-0 respectively. Two early first-half goals from Enner Valencia defeated hosts Qatar. The Netherlands, meanwhile, gave up late against Senegal. Cody Gakpo came through with six minutes left and Davy Klaassen sealed it deep in injury time.

The pre-game conversation centered on the health of each team’s top scorer. Memphis Depay can walk 45 minutes as he continues his journey back to full fitness, according to head coach Louis van Gaal. Meanwhile, Ecuador confirmed there is no existing injury that would prevent captain Valencia from playing after limping away with a knee problem at the weekend.

Sporting News is following live scoring updates and highlights for Netherlands vs Ecuador at the 2022 World Cup. Below are the full results of the Group A match in Qatar.

Netherlands vs Ecuador lineups, team news

Launch Memphis Depay or not? If Van Gaal expects the same intense and physical start to the game from his South American opponents that was shown in the opener against Qatar, it might be best to save Depay for the second half and let Vincent Janssen struggle against the Ecuadorian defenders until then .

Andries Noppert should remain in goal after the shutout against Senegal.

It’s a battle for the top spot in Group A at the Khalifa International Stadium as the joint leaders go head-to-head. The team that finishes first will avoid a potential round of 16 match against the Group B winners, who are currently led by England.

Ecuador made the best impression in the opening round against hosts Qatar, but the Dutch showed courage and composure, holding off Senegal and rushing late to win their opener.

An upset result here from the South American team’s unpopular No. 44 isn’t entirely out of the question. So you can follow all the action in the major global territories.
