Qatar vs Senegal line-ups: Predicted XIs, team news confirmed, latest injury for 2022 World Cup group game

Q

Atar head coach Felix Sanchez wants his players to enter the pitch with freedom as they seek to beat Senegal and keep their World Cup hopes alive.

A 2-0 loss to Ecuador on Sunday saw Qatar become the first hosts to lose their opening game, and will be the first team eliminated from the tournament should they suffer the same fate on Friday.

Goalkeeper Saad Alsheeb was arguably the most fragile on his country’s debut in the tournament, during which nerves seemed to take over, but they are unlikely to be replaced.

Senegal also lost their opener 2-0, with two late goals from the Netherlands and another questionable goalkeeping performance in Edouard Mendy. He will also keep his place but there could be changes ahead of him.

Cheikhou Kouyate was sent off against the Dutch and is suffering from a torn thigh muscle, while defender Abdou Diallo has similar issues.

Head coach Aliou Cissé could also bring some extra firepower in the form of Bamba Dieng.

Qatar predicted XI: Al Sheeb; Al-Rawi, Khoukhi, Hassan; Miguel, Hatem, Boudiaf, Al-Haydos, Ahmed; Ali, Afif

Senegal predicted XI: E Mendy, Sabaly, Koulibaly, Touré, N Mendy, Gueye, Cissé, Diatta, Dieng, Sarr, Dia
