2022 FIFA World Cup Day 1 Preview- Host country Qatar takes on Ecuador; match timing, live streaming and more
Host Qatar will open the tournament against Ecuador, and this will be their first World Cup appearance. The challenge for the home team is to make its presence felt in Group A, which also has other top teams- Senegal and the Netherlands. Qatar can put up a good fight against Ecuador, which is ranked just five places above it at No. 44 in the FIFA rankings. Undoubtedly, Qatar can provide a shock as the team has had decent success in the 2019 Copa America, 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup and title victory in 2019 Asian Cup.
Meanwhile, Ecuador is another potential surprise package. But their preparation was marred by controversy, as Chile and Peru claimed that Ecuador fielded defender, Byron Castillo who was actually Colombian. Though the claim was rejected by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the team has had to cope with unnecessary attention, which might have affected their preparations. We will get to know more about that today.
