The stakes will be very high in the Qatar 2022 group stage final. Matchday 2 left things open going into the final round as only three teams have secured a spot in the knockout stages so far. For example, Ecuador and Senegal will fight to stay alive in the FIFA World Cup.
La Tri have impressed in their first two games against the host nation and the Netherlands, but they still have their work cut out for them. The African team, on the other hand, wants to pick up where it left off.
For both, this is a crucial match in their World Cup aspirations. While a win would be enough to qualify for the round of 16, many are wondering what would happen if this game ended in a tie.
