Ecuador took on the role of spoilsport on opening night as they beat Qatar 2-0. The hosts were weak in all departments and could easily have lost by a bigger margin.
Senegal were much more competitive against the Netherlands but suffered a defeat by the same result, with Louis van Gaal’s side scoring two late goals.
Both teams are therefore under pressure to win this game on Monday, which should make for an enjoyable encounter.
Kick-off is at 13:00 GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the 2022 World Cup (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

Players to watch / key battles
Akram Afif is Qatar’s best player but the hosts need to find a way to get the ball to him further up the pitch. The 26-year-old dropped too low to be effective against Ecuador.
Ismaila Sarr was Senegal’s best player last time out so his speed and tricks will be key in their approach.

kickoff and channel
Kick-off between Qatar and Senegal 1pm GMT on Friday November 25th In the United Kingdom. The game is available to watch for free on ITV 1 and the ITV Hub.
It’s kick-off time in the US 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. The game is shown on FOX/FS1 in the US. See below for international sending options.
If you’re out of the country for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch as usual on your home streaming service. The sender knows where you are based on your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from viewing it. However, you can use a VPN to bypass this without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), provided it complies with your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t figure out where you are and lets you watch. And all information that goes in between is fully encrypted, anonymous and secure – and that’s a result.
There are many inexpensive options out there. For the 2022 World Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
