In the second round of group A, Holland x Ecuador can already guarantee the first place in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar
Netherlands x Ecuador marks one of the clashes of the second round of Group A of the 2022 World Cup. The teams face each other this Friday, 25th, from 13h (Brasília time), at the Khalifa Internacional stadium, and fight for the leadership of the group.
The two teams won in their respective clashes in the debut of the World Cup. The Ecuadorians beat Qatar, the host team, by 2-0 and started well in the competition. By the same score, the European team overcame Senegal in the first clash.
The Netherlands returned to the World Cup after being left out in 2018. Without winning even one edition, the Clockwork Orange had outstanding teams and campaigns in the tournament. This year, Louis van Gaal’s team promises to advance in the competition and try to fight for the title. Despite recent disappointments, such as the Euro or the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers, the Dutch team has good players in its squad.
Ecuador arrives to play the fourth World Cup in its history and with chances to match the best campaign. In 2006, in Germany, the Ecuadorians advanced to the round of 16, when they were eliminated by England. This year, after a great classification in the Qualifiers, just behind Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, the team hopes to pass the group stage.
