Qatar and Senegal suffered losing starts to their 2022 World Cup campaigns, but each has the chance to get up and running at the other’s expense here.
After hosts Qatar kicked off this tournament with a 2-0 defeat by Ecuador, Senegal were soon beaten 2-0 by Netherlands in Group A.
But the African champions at least looked worthy of a draw until they conceded twice late on, while Qatar were poor from first whistle to last.
