Follow all of the live action as we build up to the opening match of the FIFA World Cup, which will take place on Sunday, November 20 between hosts Qatar and Ecuador.
Updates for the FIFA World Cup 2022, November 20, 2022:
Play Sunday, Qatar takes on Ecuador in the first round of the event.
The World Cup is a source of enormous national pride for Qatar as it seeks to improve its profile on the world scale and modernize.
Qatar has never competed in a World Cup before and has a significant job merely to advance from Group A, which also contains Senegal and the Netherlands.
South Africa was the only host nation to fail to advance past the group stage in 2010, thus avoiding that distinction would be a feat in and of itself.
Sunday may be Qatar’s greatest chance of success against an Ecuador team that is only five places higher in the FIFA standings, at No. 44.
