World Cup 2022 LIVE: Netherlands vs Ecuador Latest Score, Goals & Updates from Qatar – Ecuador’s Hitstrip After Equalizing Enner Valencia

Valencia and Ecuador train ahead of the Netherlands’ World Cup Group A test

A place in the round of 16 is offered to the winning team when Ecuador and the Netherlands meet in Group A this afternoon. The South American team impressively beat Qatar 2-0 in the opening match of the 2022 World Cup and know that a second victory today will ensure them a secure qualification to the knockout round. The same can be said for the Netherlands, who left the match at the end of the match against Senegal before finally taking all three points.

Enner Valencia was the player of the moment for Ecuador, scoring both goals in Al Khor and delivering an impressive performance from the centre-forward. He is also team captain and will need to repeat his previous performance if his team hopes to beat the Dutch this afternoon.

Louis van Gaal’s side shared their goals with praised striker Cody Gakpo and midfielder Davy Klaassen, who scored late goals against Senegal on Monday. The European team is favored to progress quite far in this tournament after leaving the 2018 edition, and securing a pre-match knockout ball will allow them to live up to pre-tournament expectations.
