Ecuador meet the Netherlands on matchday two of Group A, in Khalifa International Stadium, 11 am. ET
After completely ruining Qatar’s party in the first game of the World Cup, Ecuador will face the Netherlands on the second matchday of Group A. The Netherlands will also be traveling to Khalifa International Stadium with three points under their belts.
On Sunday, Enner Valencia scored twice to lead Ecuador to a 2-0 victory against Qatar. On Monday, Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaasen scored in the last few minutes to lead the Netherlands to a victory over Senegal by the same scoreline.
On Friday, the qualification for the round of 16 might go to either the Netherlands or Ecuador. The Ecuadorians will go to the next round with a victory if Senegal are unable to defeat Qatar in the day’s earlier group encounter, while a win for the Netherlands would advance Louis van Gaal’s team to the next round as long as the Qataris lose points in the process.
