World Cup 2022 – Qatar vs Senegal LIVE: Stream FREE, score, TV channel – hosts on brink of exit

    QATAR are facing Senegal RIGHT NOW at the 2022 World Cup – and the hosts trail 2-0!

    Bayern Munich ace Sadio Mane inspired the Lions to their first ever AFCON triumph in February but he is playing NO part of this tournament after suffering an injury.

    And head coach Aliou Cisse will be hoping the Senegalese talisman can somehow do the same in football’s biggest cup competition.

    However, Senegal need to navigate their way over a tricky second hurdle first in Qatar with the tournament being on their home soil.

    But the African giants are expected to come out on top as Senegal have a whole host of world class talent amongst their squad.

    • Qatar 0-2 Senegal

      58. Hoping for Qatar to get two quick goals to make a game out of this may be too much to ask.

      Let’s keep it more simple.

      We now want Qatar to have a shot on target before full time.

    • Qatar 0-2 Senegal

      56. Ismail is caught as he drags the ball back, sending the defender to the shops,

      Free kick for Qatar in a dangerous position.

      Ball is clipped in, not dealt with by Senegal and as Qatar look to get a shot off it hits one of their own players.

      Sums up their tournament right there.

    • Qatar 0-2 Senegal

      54. Cannot imagine what the crowd will be like in Qatar’s final game.

      Just an away end maybe.

      Although the official attendance will still no doubt be 222,000.

    • Qatar 0-2 Senegal

      52. Qatar need to have a go at this now.

      Not that they look like a team who are holding back in any way.

      They have just looked out of their depth in their two games so far.

    • Qatar 0-2 Senegal

      50. The ball was crossed in and Diedhiou bent his neck to direct it towards the goal beating Basham all ends up.

      Great header by the Senegal attacker.

      Qatar look all but out of their own tournament.

    • Goal – Famara Diedhiou (Senegal)

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      48. Qatar are still looking quite patient in their play.

      Knocking it around the back four before knocking one long seems to be the general tactic.

      They are getting no joy from this as the passes are in the main, wild.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      46. Senegal look to pass the ball around.

      Making Qatar chase shadows.

      It is all a bit scrappy from the hosts when on the ball.

    • Kick-off: Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      Senegal get the second half started.

      Qatar need to start with some intent.

      Big half ahead for both teams.

    • HT: Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      The hosts have yet to register a shot on target in the tournament.

      Akram Afif has been their only danger going forward.

      That said, he has not had much.

    • HT: Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      The second half should surely be a more open affair as Qatar need to go for it now or they are out of the tournament.

      Senegal will want more goals to improve their chances of qualifying for the next round.

      It should make for an end-to-end game.

    • HT: Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      The Lions of Teranga will feel they did enough in that first half to go in at the break with the lead.

      Victory today for Senegal would keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the knockout stages.

    • HT: Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      The referee brings the first half to a close.

      In what was a very even 45 minutes, the difference between the sides was a goal that in all fairness Qatar gifted to their opponents.

      Cisse will be happy to have the half-time lead while he reorganises his troops in the break.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      45+6. Qatar are passing the ball around but making no gains.

      They have to go long with direct balls this time pulled out of the air with a great piece of control.

      It is threaded forward for Abdulla to chase but Mendy gets there first.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      45+4. Qatar are sitting so deep that when they look to break Afif is on his own in the Senegal half, with their entire defence.

      They need to find a way back into this game.

      It will be a struggle to do so with so little players in the Senegal half.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      45+2. The additional time at this World Cup is baffling.

      We may have managers not making any substitutions as they want to bring on some fresh legs for the 25 minutes of added time.

      M. Ahmed is shown a yellow card for a late challenge.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      45. We are going to have seven additional minutes.

      Correia gets winded by his own man and rolls around on the ground like he’s covered in fire ants.

      Could be a painful one to the ribs, although I do not recommend rolling around if that is the case.

      Note: I have no medical training for the record.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      43. Senegal continue to press looking to turn the screw.

      Qatar look rocked by that goal.

      The African side can sense this game is here for the taking now.

    • Qatar 0-1 Senegal

      41. The ball is struck towards goal and Khoukhi looks to clear but fluffs his lines completely.

      Dia runs into the box and strikes the loose ball into the net.

      Absolute gift there from Qatar.

    • Goal – Boulaye Dia (Senegal)

    • Qatar 0-0 Senegal

      39. The game has become scrappy in the middle of the park.

      Qatar are taking some unnecessary risks in defence.

      They always seem capable of a ‘Keystone Cops’ moment.

    • Qatar 0-0 Senegal

      37. Senegal are creating half-chances but nothing more.

      Still trying to work out what VAR is for after it did not even check that penalty appeal for Qatar.

      Cisse needs more output in the final third from his team.

    • Qatar 0-0 Senegal

      35. Afif goes running into the box and he is bundled to the ground.

      Qatari players are incensed claiming for a penalty.

      The referee is having none of it.

      VAR will surely look at that.

      The replay shows that should have been a penalty yet VAR did not even feel the need to look at it.


    • Qatar 0-0 Senegal

      33. We have a break in play as M. Ahmed is treated for an injury.

      He seemed to land awkwardly on his hand.

      Good to see he is back on his feet and ready to go again.

    • Qatar 0-0 Senegal

      31. Qatar break once again and they work a cross into the box but Mendy does well as he comes and collects the cross.

      He immediately throws the ball out and sets his side on a quick counter attack.

      Barsham comes racing out of his box and does not deal with the ball but as Sarr tries to get the ball towards goal, the hosts manage to head it clear.
