Felix Sanchez hands starts to some hitherto unused members of  the Qatar squad (opens in new tab).


Netherlands (3-4-1-2)

Qatar (5-3-2)

Barsham; Mohammad, Miguel, Khoukhi, Hassan, Ahmed; Al Haidos, Madibo, Hatem; Ali, Afif


The Netherlands left it late to beat Senegal 2-0 in their first game, and they were lucky to take a point after being outplayed by Ecuador last time out.

Qatar were outclassed in a 2-0 defeat by Ecuador on opening night, but they were slightly better in a 3-1 loss to Senegal on matchday two.


Bakary Gassama of Gambia will be the referee for Netherlands vs Qatar. You can find out more about the World Cup 2022 referees here (opens in new tab).

Players to watch / key battles

The Netherlands will look to get the likes of Memphis Depay and Cody Gakpo on the ball more often than they did against Ecuador.

Qatar will sit deep and look to frustrate the Dutch, but they may struggle to get up the pitch enough to cause them problems at the other end.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch World Cup 2022 football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for the World Cup 2022, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the World Cup 2022, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
