World Cup 2022: Qatar vs Senegal – prediction, team news, lineups

Saad Al Sheeb Qatar goalkeeper has a poor quality in the match with Ecuador, and both back-up keepers have featured in friendlies pre-tournament.

If Sanchez opts to make a change, then Meshaal Barsham is the obvious choice given he saved the deciding penalty in their Arab Cup final victory over Egypt in 2021 and is seen as less erratic.

Qatar goalkeeper was one of four players booked on Sunday, so they all run the risk of suspension in the final game against the Dutch, with striking pair Ali and Afif as well as Karim Boudiaf also on a yellow card.

Captain Hassan Al Haydos is set to earn his 171st cap for Qatar here in midfield as one of five centurions expected to start.

Senegal have revealed that Abdou Diallo is fine to return to training immediately despite going off with muscle cramps against Holland.

That will be a relief as Diallo has filled in as a makeshift left-back given the injury to Fode Ballo-Toure in the lead up to the finals.

However, Cheikhou Kouyate is not as fortunate, as the Nottingham Forest midfielder was stretched off with a muscle problem of his own and will miss this fixture.

It is rumoured that Edouard Mendy could be dropped after his horror show on Monday, with Queens Park Rangers’ Seny Dieng waiting in the wings to take his place.

Possible starting lineup for Qatar:
Barsham; Pedro Miguel, Khoukhi, Salman, A Hassan, Ahmed; Al Haydos, Boudiaf, Hatem; Ali, Afif

Possible starting lineup for Senegal:
Dieng; Sabaly, Koulibaly, Cisse, Diallo; I Gueye, N Mendy; Ndiaye, I Sarr, Diatta, Dia
