Hosts Qatar eliminated after Netherlands play a 1-1 draw with Ecuador.

Netherlands opened the scoring just six minutes into the game. Klaassen did well to rein in a deflected pass, before feeding Gakpo. He took one step to the left before shooting with his left foot, and rifling the ball straight into the top corner, scoring his second of the tournament.

Valencia had a goal disallowed for offside by VAR just before the break

Valencia finally got his goal for Ecuador and this time it stands.
Estupinan was found in open space down the left and drilled a low shot from the edge of the box. The Netherlands Goalkeeper got down well and parried it, but Valencia was on hand to stab the ball into back of the net to make it 1-1! They were denied by the flag right at the end of the first half, but Ake plays Valencia onside here, meaning they do get their just reward right at the start of the second.

The draw means host Qatar is the first country to be eliminated from this year’s tournament.

Netherlands and Ecuador now sit joint first at the top of the Group with four points apiece. Senegal who defeated Qatar earlier today sit third with 3 points while Qatar are bottom of th group with 0 points.
