23:40 (IST)21 NOV 2022

That's it for this one. We have the last game of the day coming up - USA v Wales. Hop tabs to catch that. For now bye from here.

23:40 (IST)21 NOV 2022

23:37 (IST)21 NOV 2022

23:34 (IST)21 NOV 2022

A couple of tweets before we sign off for this game.

23:34 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Netherlands left it late but a goalkeeping error from Mendy saw Gakpo pounce and Davy Klaassen added a late second as Senegal went in search of an equaliser. A game where Senegal strung together lots of passes but without the killer effect. Certainly missed the presence of Sadio Mane. Netherlands join Ecuador on 3 points at the top of Group A.

23:32 (IST)21 NOV 2022

FULL-TIME! Senegal 0 Netherlands 2.

23:30 (IST)21 NOV 2022

GOAL! Davy Klaassen in the 98th minute! Senegal 0 Netherlands 2. That's the game done now. Depay's shot is saved by Mendy but Klaassen is there to pounce on the rebound to slot it home. All 3 points surely now.

23:25 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Lovely ball into the box but the header from a Senegalese striker loops well over. It's not happening for them tonight.

23:22 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Eight minutes of added time!

23:21 (IST)21 NOV 2022

STAT courtesy of the BBC: Cody Gakpo has now been involved in four goals in his last four international appearances for the Netherlands (3 goals, 1 assist).

23:19 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Andries Noppert stretches  a long way on the dive and gets a strong left hand to push a Papa Gueye shot wide of the near-post. Good save.

23:15 (IST)21 NOV 2022

GOAL! Cody Gakpo in the 84th minute! Senegal 0 Netherlands 1. That is poor from Edouard Mendy as he comes for a cross and does not get there, Frenkie de Jong's perfectly arced cross is nodded in by Gakpo who got ahead of Mendy. Is that the winner?

23:05 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Noppert saves well from Idrissa Gueye but it was straight at him and wouldn't have counted anyway as someone was offside.

23:03 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Cheikhou Kouyate rises high and seems to have pulled something while doing so, he can't get up and is now off on a stretcher. A substitute comes on in his place. Kouyate is an integral part of this team and that's a big loss for Senegal.

23:01 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Another substitution for Senegal as Boulaye Dia makes way for Marseille’s Bamba Dieng.

22:57 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Chance for Senegal and Boulaye Dia forces a sharp near-post save from Andries Noppert. The goalkeeper would've been disappointed had that gone in.

22:54 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Senegal make a substitution: Ismail Jakobs on for Abdou Diallo.

22:53 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Netherlands' top-scorer in qualifying, Memphis Depay comes on. His 82nd cap and he has scored 42 goals.

22:49 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Krepin Diatta gets an awkward ball at the far post and he cannot control the hook back across goal. Slices off his foot and out. Half a chance there.

22:47 (IST)21 NOV 2022

YELLOW CARD! To Matthijs de Ligt. A crunching tackle and the Dutch defender is the first one to go into the book for the game.

22:44 (IST)21 NOV 2022

A couple of corners for Netherlands and the second one is headed over by van Dijk after the first one is easily collected by Mendy.

22:36 (IST)21 NOV 2022

We're back for the second half as Netherlands take control of the ball and look to break the deadlock! 

22:23 (IST)21 NOV 2022

11 shots in that half but just one from Senegal which was on target. And the clearest chance fell to Frenkie de Jong who tried to twist and turn too many times, saw his chance go to waste. It has been an open game and fun to watch.

22:20 (IST)21 NOV 2022

HALF-TIME! Senegal 0 Netherlands 0

22:14 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Soon Ismaila Sarr at the other end squares the ball into the penalty box but Netherlands clear.

22:14 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Steven Berghuis lines up a shot from outside the box but blasts it over.

22:00 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Netherlands win a corner, Gakpo takes it and van Dijk rises to head but pulls the header wide.

21:58 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Now Senegal have a great chance as Ismaila Sarr cuts inside leaving the right-back flat-footed, it's going into the top right corner until van Dijk heads the ball away. It was on target and had the big Dutch goalkeeper beaten.

21:52 (IST)21 NOV 2022

What a chance for Netherlands! Frenkie de Jong is one-on-one with the goalkeeper but he dilly-dallies and the defender gets back to hack it away. A glorious chance goes.

21:49 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Gakpo crosses from the right and Blind at the far post jumps high but finds the sidenetting.

21:48 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Gakpo and Dumfries get away on the right and the latter crosses it into the box but a Senegalese defender clears.

21:41 (IST)21 NOV 2022

What a chance for Netherlands as Gakpo cuts it across the penalty box but there's no-one in the Dutch side who can meet that cross. Senegal get away with that one as they clear.

21:36 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Early chance for Senegal but Cheikhou Kouyate's shot is deflected over.

21:33 (IST)21 NOV 2022


21:28 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Time for the national anthems.

21:28 (IST)21 NOV 2022

The warm-ups are done and the players will soon be in the tunnel. Huge support for the Dutch as 3000 Oranje supporters are expected in Qatar for this World Cup.

21:20 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Brazil's Wilton Sampaio is the ref for this one, with Bruno Boschilia and Bruno Raphael Pires his assistants.

21:19 (IST)21 NOV 2022

The Al Thumama Stadium in Doha is the venue for this game and it has a capacity of 40,000. Also the only completely circular venue at this World Cup.

20:37 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Jurrien Timber has been Louis van Gaal's go-to man at RCB, but the legendary Dutch manager has opted to hand Matthijs de Ligt a return to the starting XI for the clash against Senegal. De Ligt is undoubtedly a fine defender and has shown his class for club and country over the years, but can he re-establish himself at the heart of the backline alongside Virgil van Dijk and Nathan Ake? 

Only time will tell. 

20:32 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Confirmed Senegal XI (4-3-3):

E. Mendy, Diallo, Koulibaly, Cissé, Sabaly, N. Mendy, Gueye, Diatta, Kouyaté, Sarr, Dia

20:25 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Confirmed Netherlands XI (3-4-3):

Noppert, Dumfries, Blind, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Ake, De Jong, Berghuis, Gakpo, Janssen, Bergwijn

20:13 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Netherlands captain Virgil van Dijk is set to make his first appearance at a major tournament at the age of 31. The Dutchman is undoubtedly one of the finest defenders of his generation and will look to make a big impact on the grandest stage when he leads his side out in Qatar. 

20:08 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Senegal will have to make do without Sadio Mane, whose injury came as a crushing blow after they initially named him in the 26-man squad to travel to Qatar. However, the Netherlands have their own injury issues, with Memphis Depay currently out with a hamstring problem. 

19:49 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Netherlands were considering one of the favorites at the Euro 2020. But the Oranje endured a shock defeat to Czech Republic in the Round of 16. Undoubtedly, they are desperate to do well in Qatar.

19:31 (IST)21 NOV 2022

Senegal were handed a huge blow before the start of the tournament when Sadio Mane was ruled out due to injury. That will be a massive blow for Aliou Cisse and company when it comes to their aspirations in Qatar.

19:16 (IST)21 NOV 2022
