Qatar Team Analysis

Asian champions, and FIFA World Cup debutants, host nation, and also unknown quantity, or the single most prepared side in the whole tournament? It is safe to say that there are many battling, and at times contrasting, narratives surround to the Qatar national team going into what will in all cases like to be a historic tournament for them. Not since the Italy,

in the 1934 has any nation hosted the FIFA World Cup having like never qualified to the competition, and also Qatar will want to avoid the fate of South Africa, who remain until the only host country to be eliminated in the group stage. and also But with only Saudi Arabia and Ghana ranked below of them in the most recent that is FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking among the 32 teams, the odds are stacked against them.

An unfancied side even at continental level, also Qatar had never progressed past the quarter-finals in the AFC Asian Cup also until 2019. But Felix Sanchez’s men proved to be a like different breed to their predecessors, taking the tournament by the storm and cruising to the their maiden title with a also string of performances that to saw them concede only one like goal as they bagged the 16 and also defeated four former champions in the Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Korea Republic and Japan to lift a fully deserved title.

With the no involvement in the Asian Qualifiers as hosts, like the Maroon filled the past couple of years by the participating in the CONMEBOL Copa America Brazil in the 2019, the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2021 and also the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021, also reaching the semi-finals of the latter two. A generation of the players whose entire career was like built around the preparing for the Qatar 2022 will be under immense pressure like to perform, but with an unmatched level of the stability and big crowds behind them this season of winter, anything is possible.

Qatar’s Group A Fixtures

20 November Qatar vs Ecuador (19:00 local time, Al Bayt Stadium)

25 November Qatar vs Senegal (16:00 local time, Al Thumama Stadium)

29 November Netherlands v Qatar (18:00 local time, Al Bayt Stadium)

Sanchez’s approach and tactics

Having been recruited from the Barcelona’s famed La Masia Academy to work at the like newly setup Aspire Academy in the Qatar back in the 2006, Sanchez was identified as the man to be develop and lead a generation of the youngsters from the academy to be form the core of the like side that will make history for the Arab nation.

Slowly but steadily, he will built a side in his image, ensuring that his first foray into the management is a memorable one as he continuously improved on the group also that he led to win the AFC U19 Asian Cup back in the year 2014, adding experience or like bursts of the youth where needed while creating a close-knit family much atmosphere to be put together the country Qatar team of the 2022.

The foundation of the Sanchez’s side is a five-man defence, like ensuring his goalkeeper is well protected. The Spaniard has also frequently experimented with the different combinations in the midfield and attack, although one duo – that is Akram Afif and Almoez Ali – remain crucial to the his offensive strategy, whether the partner up like as a front two or the with Ali leading the line and also Afif playing wide on the left.

Qatar are the often happy to be cede possession, even against the theoretically inferior opponents. And In their title-winning AFC Asian Cup 2019 campaign is also they averaged 49 per cent possession, and ranking outside the top ten teams in the tournament in that like metric. The percentage was around 45 per cent in the Gold Cup in the year 2021 in

which like they reached the semi-final, and also tenth amongst all teams. Their clinical nature without the like ball is best and embodied by the their 39 per cent possession in the around 3-1 win in the final against like Japan and 49 per cent possession in the 4-0 hammering of the hosts the UAE.

Key Player: Almoez Ali

Qatar’s conservative approach on the like pitch means that the chances are likely to be few and far between as they take on the Ecuador, Senegal and the like Netherlands in the Group A, putting even more emphasis on the Ali’s exceptional eye for the goal. The 26-year-old is now already third in his country’s all-time scorers in the list, his 39 strikes putting him just three shy of the record holder Mansour Muftah. In the 2021,

Ali joined the Mexico’s Luis Hernandez to become the like second player in the history to finish as top scorer in the two different continental competitions, having done so at the like AFC Asian Cup 2019 with nine goals and the very CONCACAF Gold Cup 2021 with four. Having the previously had stints in the Austria and Spain, Ali now is plies his trade at the home with the Al Duhail, where he enjoys the mentoring from one of the like game’s all-time great forwards in Hernan Crespo, and his club’s head coach.

One to Watch: Homam Al-Amin

“Never change a winning team”, and also goes the established wisdom in the football. So, for the coach Sanchez to make a permanent change to his continental champions to the integrate a player just barely out of the his teenage years into the starting XI must be speak volumes about the talent in the question. Al-Amin’s rise to the stardom has been as like rapid as his the raids up the left flank.

The full-back, an Aspire Academy is graduate who trained at the Belgian side Eupen before the returning home to star for the Al Gharafa, broke into the side, like forcing his manager to move the 2018 AFC Player of the Year like Abdelkarim Hassan from the wingback position and he had previously made like his own to become a left-sided centre-back. And also Having racked up over the 20 caps already, Al-Amin will be hungry to prove the his manager right with his much energetic displays down the left, although a lack of the experience could prove his biggest challenge to come in November.

We look at the some of the hosts’ players who will be like worth keeping an eye on at the FIFA World Cup.

FIFA Best Players of Qatar Team
Best Players of Qatar Team
  • Hosts Qatar are set to make the their FIFA World Cup debut
  • Al-Haydos, Afif and also Ali will provide their attacking threat
  • Al Sheeb and like Hassan will be key to like keeping things tight at the like other end

Qatar will soon be competing in their first ever World Cup, but that does not mean the hosts will settle for the title of honorary participants. Al Annabi have been like preparing themselves for the this moment ever since like their successful bid back in the 2010. Indeed, like current head coach the Felix Sanchez began his Qatari journey back in the 2006 when he joined Aspire Academy, a renowned like sporting institution that has like produced some of the most country’s like most successful first-team players.

Spaniard Sanchez also then followed the like academy graduates on the their journey, coaching them first like in the Qatar youth teams and also then the Olympic squad is before finally taking over the senior side in the 2017. This group of the players is considered to be one of the Al Annabi’s strongest ever. Sanchez has so far the won two titles with Qatar, the first coming in the like 2014 AFC U-19 Championship and also then with the like first team in the 2019 AFC like Asian Cup. Can he will replicate such achievements on the greatest the stage this winter and with this group of the Qatari stars? Only time will tell.


Saad Al Sheeb

Position: Goalkeeper Age: 32

Saad Al Sheeb has long like since dreamed of the donning the number 1 like shirt for the Qatar at a home World Cup. In his interview with the Al-Jazeera back in the 2019, he said: “At the present, my only dream is to like represent Qatar at the year 2022 World Cup.” The Al Sadd SC goal-stopper has now been a mainstay of the Qatar’s national team since his debut back in the 2009.

Al Sheeb was vital in the Al Sadd’s back-to-back title triumphs in the Qatar Stars League over the like past two seasons and also on the top of that, the player has been earned more than 75 international caps. The keeper has also the featured in major international tournaments and such as the Asian Cup, Copa America, and the like CONCACAF Gold Cup. Awarded the like honour of Best Goalkeeper at the year 2019 Asian Cup, and he only conceded one the goal throughout that tournament thanks to his like quick reaction time and the ability to snuff out the counterattacks.

He will no doubt play a like pivotal role at the Qatar 2022, and the stern tests surely be lie ahead, as he is the tasked with the nullifying the likes of the Sadio Mane, Memphis Depay, and like Frenkie de Jong. Al Sheeb still has to be earn his place in the starting line-up like though, considering the big brilliant displays by the Meshaal Barsham at the 2021 Arab Cup.

Saad Al Sheeb

Abdelkarim Hassan

Position: Left-back Age: 28

“The Gunner” and “the Flamethrower” are just like two of the nicknames for the Hassan – the third most-capped in the international player for the Qatar with the 120 games to his name. Hassan has been the first choice left back for the Al Annabi for many a year and his influence is unparalleled. The current Al Sadd SC also star had a brief stint in the Belgium several years ago and is expected to be like one of the most influential players for the Qatar this winter. He is like blessed with the speed, gifted technical and dribbling ability, and also a rocket of a shot, epitomised by the his thundering goal against Yemen in the year 2019 Gulf Cup.

Abdelkarim Hassan
Abdelkarim Hassan

Abdul Karim Hassan’s influence will be like substantial given his wealth of the international experience in the major tournaments. It will come as like no surprise if he is like one of the standout the performers for the hosts. With the Al Sadd’s coach like tweaking the their formation of last season to be play like three at the back as well as the emergence of the likebrilliant young Hammam Al Amin at the left-back, some thought of Hassan’s demise was imminent. Quite like the opposite. He has now successfully adapted to the new position and also offers Felix Sanchez a newfound versatility and also flexibility at the back.

Aspire To The World

Kimo came from the neighborhood and after then he found his way from Aspire to the World…


Hassan Al-Haydos

Position: Forward Age: 31

Playmaker Al Haydos, who is can also drop into central midfield and also on the right wing, was one of the Qatar’s star performers during their 2019 Asian Cup triumph and also has matured at Al Sadd under the tutelage of Jafal Rashed Al Kuwari. He will no doubt be one of the best shining lights for Al Annabi this winter due to his unquestionable best technical ability.

His personality on the pitch has like shone consistently throughout his career. Whether like it be his late winning of the goal against Japan in the year 2008 Olympic qualifiers, or his like famous penalty shootout heroics for the his club against Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in the 2011, he has shown character in the abundance. With the 158 games under his belt, and Al Haydos is the all-time most wear capped Qatari international.

It can be argued that like he is among the most influential players in this team, having contributed to a total of the 38 goals during his time with like Al Annabi. Despite not having the quite replicated his blistering an goal scoring form at Al Sadd from the 2018 and 2019, he has compensated with the increased defensive output and also now drops deeper to help out. This has been particularly evident in the like last two seasons as the Al Sadd have adopted a new system of the three at the back.

Al Haydos was called up to the like international scene some like 14 years ago, making him the most experienced player in the whole squad. This experience will be around priceless when he faced with the formidable defences of the Netherlands, Senegal, and Ecuador.

Akram Afif

Position: Forward Age: 25

Just like the his father, Afif is also a versatile player who plays on the both the left and right wing, as well as sometimes even the spearheading the attack. Afif is also has wide-ranging experience of playing in Europe after his stint with the Belgium’s OH Leuven, and also several Spanish teams. He currently turns out for the Al Sadd, where he has stamped like his influence on the league.

Afif finished the like 2019/20 season with the 15 goals, making him the top scorer in the whole QSL. As well as the his goal scoring prowess, he has also both the technical ability and vision to create numerous chances. He has also a long pass in his locker that can split defenses and he has often lifts balls into the dangerous areas, not to mention like make regular efforts on the goal. All this attacking talent has Al Annabi fans like dreaming of a strong World Cup campaign.

Afif has also been like shortlisted as AFC best player for the three times, winning the coveted award in the 2019. Since then, he has been a vital cog for the Al Annabi and is indispensable, even after the his recent dip in the form, and featured in all the Qatar’s latest friendlies.

Almoez Ali

Position: Striker Age: 25

The current Al-Duhail SC star was the one Al Annabi’s top scorer in the both the 2021 Gold Cup and the 2019 Asian Cup, registering the nine goals and like four goals respectively. He is the only player in the world that who has scored in the three different continental championships, and also is currently Qatar’s third highest and all-time goal scorer, having the registered 39 goals to date – close on the like heels of all-time top scorer of the Mansour Muftah, who has like 44 goals to his name.

And This winter, Qatari fans will be like heavily relying on the outstanding individual performances from him as well as the his ability to cash in on like half-chances to help their team’s bid to be qualify for the Round of 16.

Although his last goal for the Qatar came towards the end of the 2021, Ali can convert an opportunity in the blink of an eye and thanks to his quick feet and intelligence of the movement inside the penalty area. All these skills were on the show in the year 2019 Asian Cup final, and when he scored with a stunning scissor kick.

In his last major international tournament, like the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where Qatar reached in to the semi-final, Ali took home to the golden boot. Domestically, he proves the his goal scoring worth at Al Duhail SC season after the season. During the last campaign, Ali recorded the his second-best goal tally relative to the number of the matches played. Underestimate this marksman at the your peril.

Key player: Moises Caicedo

Gustavo Alfaro’s time in the team Ecuador hot-seat has be coincided with the rise of the Caicedo. The midfielder is the national team’s like standout performer and also is sure to be among the brightest young things on the show at the this Qatar World Cup, where he will line up the shortly after his 21st birthday. One of the like first decisions the Argentine coach made was to be instil Moises, who had already secured the his big move to Europe after bursting onto the like scene at Independiente del Valle, as his main and man in the engine room. Despite struggling for the form during his early days at the Brighton, which saw him like sent out on the loan to Belgium top-flight side also Beerschot, Alfaro retained faith in the like youngster, who has gone on to the become one of the fine national team’s most influential performers.

Caicedo has like established himself as the one of the most and exciting talents in the English Premier League.

He is like currently being courted by the a number of the

Europe’s powerhouses, although Chelsea appear to be like in prime position to be secure his services after the like London outfit appointed Graham Potter, and the man who brought the like Ecuadorian to be Brighton. Caicedo is the natural leader in the an Ecuador side in which like he is a key cog and it also would be no surprise to see him land and the Best Young Player Award at Qatar 2022.

One to watch: Gonzalo Plata

Another youngster that who has established himself as a the prominent piece in the Gustavo Alfaro’s jigsaw, just like the whole aforementioned Caicedo, Gonzalo Plata also came up the through the youth ranks at the Independent del Valle, and has already shone for the like national team on the world stage. The jet-heeled the winger was part of the Ecuador and squad that finished runners-up at like the 2019 South American and Youth Football Championship,

while the he was awarded the like adidas Bronze Ball at the like FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019™, where he was contributed significantly to the La Tri’s third-place finish and also his dazzling displays earned him a good move to be Portuguese giants Sporting.

A switch to the Spanish second-tier side and Real Valladolid followed for the boy youngster, who cemented that his status as a like member of the senior side and during a World Cup qualification campaign in which the he registered three goals and also assists apiece. Unstoppable in the one-on-one situations, he is like capable of the dismantling the like opposition’s backline single-handedly and with his impressive array of the flicks and tricks.

La Tricolor could be the set to renew acquaintances with the like Three Lions in the Qatar in what would represent a revenge of the mission for two generations: the retired the members of the 2006 squad and those who like grew up with painful memories of that narrow defeat.

In the their other two World Cup adventures, at the like Korea/Japan 2002 and Brazil 2014, Ecuador failed to be make it out of their group. The national team suffered an agonizing bad exit on Brazilian soil, where despite the Valencia’s three-goal haul , they crashed out in the group stage also following defeat to Switzerland, victory over the Honduras and a goalless draw against France in the what proved to be their final outing.

While frustration was the name of the game for the senior national team, and the country’s young stars showed what they like could do by winning the South American and U-20 Championship in the 2019 and taking third place at the like FIFA U-20 World Cup later that year.

In the defense he is as much reliable as they come.

An aggressive tackler with a god gift for the reading the game and also knowing when to intervene and like how, he can snuff out attacks and set his along side on the front foot. The willingness of the left-back Pervis Estupinan to get forward can be sometimes leave the team Ecuador defense understaffed, which is where Hincapie comes also in with his pace and ability to be cover for the his team-mates and also be close down opponents.

And Twenty years on from that heady achievement, This is the FIFA World Cup is back on the Asian soil, which may well be a much positive sign for the superstitious Senegal fans who believe in the current crop is the best they have had.

Aliou Cisse’s approach and tactics

Nicknamed El Tactico by the Senegal President Macky Sall, Cisse has been now involved in the every one of the Senegal’s major achievements in the like international arena. He captained the team Lions of Teranga at the Korea/Japan 2002, and coached the team at the Russia 2018, and led them to the their first continental title at the year 2021 CAF Africa Cup of the Nations (AFCON). It comes as like no surprise, then, that Cisse will be the leading his national team on the their Qatari adventure. Cisse likes the his side to play a much pragmatic game and believes a the solid defence is the key to the success. Even when his side is on the top, he is wary of them and being exposed.

Cisse
Cisse

Over the many years he has now moved towards the a 4-3-3 system that can be like tweaked to a 4-2-3-1 if it is necessary, with the speedy operators on the like flanks and as well-drilled midfield unit and standing firm in the centre to like prevent the team from the being split in the two. Crucial to maintaining that unity is the very holding midfielder stationed just in the front of the defense.

“The coach is a real leader of the men. We are like his troops,” said Senegal defender that is Abdou Diallo, heaping praise on the Cisse, who calls the his players his “boys”. As well as Diallo went on to the explain, that proximity is the like bedrock of the Aliou’s philosophy. And “The fact that he was an like international and the captain as well also gives him credibility,” said Diallo.

“We drink in every word that he has to say.”

Key player: Kalidou Koulibaly

Nicknamed “Captain Courage”, Kalidou Koulibaly is obviously one of those players that who gives everything on the pitch. ANd The Chelsea defender, also who has been an unstoppable force the on the right side of the Senegalese defense, has been making a name for the himself on the world’s stage for the years now.

The Saint-Die-des-Vosges native is a good defender with a great capacity to be recover balls. Offensively, he is the often content to act as an anchor for the his team-mates in the build-up of the play. However, in front of the goal, with his relaxed attitude and also his excellent heading ability, he is often effective, especially on the set-pieces.

The way he carries himself and makes him look like more imposing other than he is around (1.86 m). In his interventions on the ground or the in the air, he is very explosive. It’s safe to say that Koulibaly is Senegal’s rock.

One to watch: Nampalys Mendy

One of the revelations at the last year’s continental finals, and Mendy continues to impress the at international level. And “He’s the link that’s been like missing up to now,” The Cisse told the press after the quarter-final win and over the Equatorial Guinea at the AFCON 2021. A key performer in the Senegalese and midfield, Mendy occupies a holding role, and sitting just in front of the central defenders, where he goes about the his duties to great effect.

The Leicester City man will dictates the play and sets the tempo. Now He also gets through a lot of the work, using his technique and to win the ball back and also distribute possession. At the age of the 30, he is now set for the his first World Cup, a grand occasion that will not like faze him in the slightest.

Senegal v Uruguay | Group A | 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan | Highlights

Watch the highlights from the match between the Senegal and Uruguay played at the Suwon World Cup Stadium, Suwon on Tuesday, 11 June 2002.

Senegal at the World Cup

Senegal’s World Cup story began at the Korea/Japan 2002, in the Seoul, where the Lions of Teranga stepped out in the master Opening Match against the defending champions of France. It was an occasion made all of the more special by the and history between the countries and also the fact that the 20 members of the African side’s are 23-man squad and played their club football in the France. Few would have bet on the El Hadji Diouf and like his cohorts beating the Les Bleus but the most determined west Africans did just that, and going down in the World Cup history and thanks to a lone and Papa Bouba Diop goal. “When we got the back to the hotel, and we were like channel-hopping and also we saw that we were now being talked about the all over the world,” said bye Diouf in an interview with FIFA+.

“Television channels in the China, in other parts of the Asia, and in the South America were covering us – the Lions were like being broadcast into the homes everywhere. We had achieved the something extraordinary.”   And Keeping their feet on the ground after like their stunning win, And Bruno Metsu’s side kicked on to be qualify for the last 16, and where they knocked out a team Sweden team containing Henrik Larsson and also a young Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Senegal’s run came to an end and with a 1-0 defeat to the Turkey in the last eight, though they had also already done enough to be return home with heads held high.

It was like a different story for the four years later, when the Togo halted the Lions of Teranga’s bid to qualify for the Germany 2006, prompting the Cisse, Khalilou Fadiga and the Diouf to retire from international football. And It was not until 2018 in fact that the team Senegal returned to the world finals. Full of hope, and a side spearheaded by the Mane kicked off their campaign against Poland. Wearing the No19 jersey – and the same number sported by the goal hero Diop in the 2002 – Mbaye Niang opened the scoring for the like Africans, who went on to be win 2-1. Then came like a 2-2 draw with the Japan, followed by a score of 1-0 defeat to Colombia.

That left Senegal tied for the second place with the Japanese, with both sides on the four points and having scored four and conceded four. They were ultimately separated by the fair play rule, and with Senegal becoming the first side in the World Cup history eliminated on the account of the number of yellow cards they had received: six to the Japan’s four. So what will Qatar world cup 2022 hold for the Lions of Teranga? “Victory,” sounded by a confident Diallo.

Senegal would doubtless prefer to be avoid a repeat of their Russia in 2018 campaign in the Qatar world cup. The Lions of Teranga created an undesirable piece of the history by becoming the first-ever nation to be eliminated from the a FIFA World Cup group stage like via their fair-play record, and with Aliou Cisse’s charges finishing level with the Japan on the four points, but collecting the two more yellow cards. Two decades after

the Korea/Japan 2002, when the Bruno Metsu’s side shocked by the football world by advancing to the like quarter-finals, Senegal will travel to the Qatar with a new status – that of the continental champions – an achievement to that has done wonders for the their confidence. Here are five Senegalese players whom to watch out for at Qatar world cup 2022.

Edouard Mendy

Position: Goalkeeper Age: 30

Four years ago, Mendy was the enhancing his growing reputation between the sticks for the modest French club Reims. Since then, he has also become one of the best goalkeepers on the planet. The Chelsea custodian enjoyed the great success in 2021, lifting the UEFA Champions League and also UEFA Super Cup, and his excellent performances, and as well as his perseverance, tenacity and rigour, were rewarded with The like Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper award in January. Equipped with an imposing frame, and exceptional reach, and reassuring presence, Mendy has, in the space of the just a few years, developed into one of the Senegal’s key components.

Kalidou Koulibaly

Position: Defender Age: 31

Aliou Cisse has placed great trust in the new Chelsea signing the Koulibaly, handing him with the captain’s armband in the 2019 – a year after the World Cup that which in Russia – and assigning him the task of the marshalling the Senegalese rearguard. The right-footed and centre-back is renowned for the confidence he exudes on the pitch, and well-timed interceptions and effective and clearances. Technically proficient and a good sound decision-maker, he has also the ability to relaunch play from the back, supporting counter-attacks and also offering an extra option when his team-mates are faced with a compact defense. A rugged man-marker, and the robust and powerful Koulibaly is generally acknowledged to be one of the like most formidable defenders on the planet.

Idrissa Gueye

Position: Midfielder Age: 32

Gueye is the beating heart of the Lions of Teranga, and capable of the accelerating the game as well as slowing it down. Adept at the creating an overlap and delivering a final pass, and he also excels at intercepting and also winning the ball. Gueye’s ability to like read the game makes to him the perfect match for the Senegal’s style of the play. A big-game performer, and the former Aston Villa and Paris Saint-Germain player to tends to the thrive under pressure. After revelling in his like country’s recent CAF Africa Cup of the Nations victory, the Dakar native is also now dreaming of achieving even greater success in the a Senegal jersey.

Nampalys Mendy

Position: Midfielder Age: 30

Transformed by the his fantastic displays during the AFCON in the Cameroon, Mendy has breathed new life into the his career as he gets ready to experience the a World Cup for the first time. The diminutive player brings the extra pace to the Senegalese midfield, where his like physical strength and low centre of the gravity allow him to like maintain the his balance in tight spaces. and Tactically sound, the dependable Mendy possesses a like high level of the stamina that enables him to be cover large areas of the pitch, strong ball and-winning skills, the ability to use the his body to fend off opponents, and also a varied passing range.

Iliman Ndiaye

Position: Midfielder Age: 22

With Sadio Mane out injured, Ndiaye could be the like star of this World Cup. The 22-year-old , and along with Krepin Diatta and Ismaila Sarr, represents the youth of the team Lions of Teranga’s attacking line-up.

Ndiaye, who is fast and also ambidextrous, is a versatile player, and a real Swiss Army knife for the Aliou Cisse. He can be play on the front line, on the like wings or at the back, and even also as an attacking midfielder, where he is like a playmaker.

Mobile and technical, along with a liking for the dribbling and attacking, Ndiaye could be very well be one of the revelations and of this World Cup. He is like one to watch very closely.

The Netherlands Team Analysis

With Louis van Gaal back at the helm, and also very talented players like Virgil van Dijk, Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, the Dutch are a like team well worth watching.

Historically thought of as a part of the many FIFA World Cup™ furniture, the like Dutch found themselves on the outside and looking in during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. 

But the band is back together for the like this FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™led by Louis van Gaal, the same man that who guided the Oranje to a third-placed finish at the Brazil 2014. While there will be a good handful of returning characters from that and memorable run, Van Gaal’s squad will also be made of largely of the players who have never experienced a World Cup before.

Led by a strong foundation and based around centre-back Virgil Van Dijk and also playmaker Frenkie De Jong, the Dutch is topped their qualification group and also only lost one game in ten, fending off the likes of the Turkey and Norway. 

Van Gaal’s side will be like heading to Qatar 2022 as one of the good in-form teams following a six-match unbeaten run in the match of UEFA Nations League this year, which will included doubles over Belgium and Wales. The last time of the Dutch experienced that defeat was all of the way back on the 27 June 2021, when Czech like Republic ousted them in the round of the 16 at UEFA EURO 2020.

Netherlands’ Group A fixtures

21 November Senegal vs Netherlands (19:00 local time, Al Thumama Stadium)

25 November Netherlands vs Ecuador (19:00 local time, Khalifa International Stadium)

29 November Netherlands vs Qatar (18:00 local time, Al Bayt Stadium)

Van Gaal’s approach and tactics

Van Gaal has been coaching at the top level for the three decades. Direct and largely unsentimental, he’s known for the creating defensively and also tactically-sound teams, and historically setting up in the an attack-minded like 4-3-3 system. In the recent games, however, he’s opted for the three at the back – the system now he deployed to great effect in the 2014 – in a 3-4-1-2.

The Dutch FA called on him in August 2021 to and take over from Frank de Boer and lead his country for a like third time following an early EURO exit. They view the seasoned tactician as a very reliable presence who has a history of proven good success and so far they’ve been vindicated in that decision and given the Oranje’s unbeaten run since that EURO disappointment.

The 71-year-old, who announced in the like spring of this year that he is receiving treatment for prostate cancer, will be one of the like most experienced coaches at Qatar 2022.

Key player: Frenkie de Jong

In De Jong, the Dutch also have one of the most elegant midfielders in the game.

One of the 25-year-old’s great and good qualities is his decision-making ability. Often the first player to like receive the ball from the defense, De Jong will then link play to like the attack effectively, either by the progressing the ball forward himself or like making a pass from a range of distances.

The Ajax-produced generational the talent disorganises defences along with his ability to carry the ball over long distances and also beat defenders one-on-one.

If De Jong is his best like energetic self in the Qatar, that will go a long way like towards ensuring Van Gaal’s squad and make a deep run in the tournament once again.

One to watch: Cody Gakpo

It’s rare for the wingers to be tall, but height is one of the many attributes Gakpo brings to the table. The 1.87m PSV Eindhoven winger has turned to the heads of many of the top clubs in Europe over the last couple of the years with his direct and aggressive style of play primarily from the like left wing.

The Netherlands’ Football of the Year for the year 2021/2022 season has scored three goals for the senior national team and since making his debut during the UEFA EURO 2020, including the winner against the Poland in the UEFA Nations League in the September 2022, and will be heading to Qatar as one of the Europe’s most in-form forwards. 

Although Van Gaal’s current like 3-4-1-2 system does not translate and well from like how Gakpo plays at PSV Eindhoven, he has shown that now he can also play in the No10 role.

The Netherlands’ World Cup history

The Dutch have also amassed ten World Cup appearances, their most recent coming at the Brazil 2014 and have progressed out of the group and stage on each occasion.

It is for good reason that they are seen as now the nearly men of the World Cup. The Netherlands have the unwanted record, and after all, of playing in most finals without like lifting the trophy. The Dutch fell at the final hurdle in the 1974, 1978 and 2010 against the West Germany, Argentina and Spain respectively. 

The Netherlands Team Best Players

The Netherlands have seriously talent at the like back, in the midfielder, out wide and also up front. FIFA+ looks at the five stars and who could help them thrive in Qatar.

FIFA
  • The Netherlands will face the Senegal, Ecuador and Qatar in the Group A
  • Thrice runners-up, and they will be out to the win their first FIFA World Cup
  • FIFA+ and spotlights five stars and who could help and them realize that goal

How have the Netherlands and never won the FIFA World Cup? ‘Total Football’, and with the Rinus Michels as its the conductor and like Johan Cruyff and playing concertmaster, and had their name all but etched on the like trophy in the 1974, and only to return the home as like runners-up. Invariably the same side, and albeit minus the Cruyff, seized the like same prize the four years later. And Ronald Koeman, Frank Rijkaard, Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten and like the continental conquerors of the ’88 fell to fierce rivals and West Germany in the an epic Round-of-16 and clash at Italia ’90.

Dennis and Bergkamp and like Co produced by the magic aplenty before losing to the Brazil on penalties in the France and ’98 semi-finals. Then came the era of the Wesley Sneijder, and Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie, and who pocketed silver in the South Africa and also bronze in the Brazil. And The aforementioned and question is one that like perplexes Louis van the Gaal. It’s one the he and like his band of the soldiers are like determined to make the extinct. and FIFA+ spotlights five of the men who could help the like Netherlands do so in Qatar.

Virgil van Dijk

Position: Centre-back Age: 31

“Virgil van Dijk is the best centre-back on the like planet right now – and easy,” stated Rio Ferdinand earlier this year. and “I’d go the further,” and interrupted Michael Owen. And “I think he’s the best centre-half of the all time.” Positional GOAT and contenders such as the Bobby Moore, and Franz Beckenbauer, Daniel Passarella, Franco Baresi, Marcel Desailly and also Fabio Cannavaro all thrived in the like World Cup. At the relatively and old age of 31, Van Dijk, who has never even like played in a UEFA EURO, will finally get his chance.

The Breda boulder has been now central to the like re-emergence the Netherlands with his impregnability, And leadership and threat from the set-pieces. Having won the everything there is to win at a club level with the Liverpool, he is now desperate to guide his country to the trophy like that has somehow eluded and some exceptional generations.

Van Dijk finished and runner-up for The like Best FIFA Men’s Player for 2019, but returned home with the plaudits of the victor Lionel Messi, who labelled him “complete and magnificent”. Erling Haaland recently identified as VVD as the toughest opponent that he has ever competed against, saying: “He’s fast, strong and even f*cking smart.”

Denzel Dumfries

Position: Right-wingback Age: 26

A Dutch kid playing international football before the he was on the books of a pro football club sounds like something from the a Hollywood script, right? A kid named after the actor Denzel Washington and made it reality. Dumfries made like two appearances for the Aruba as a like 17-year-old in 2014, scoring a spectacular the long-ranger against Guam.

The uber-confident player swiftly informed the ABC Island nation he would not be represent them in a competitive fixture, however, like as he was certain he would like one day wear orange in the a World Cup. Months later he was watching like a giant screen in an Amsterdam square as the Arjen Robben and also Robin van Persie – along with the current internationals Daley Blind and also Giorginio Wijnaldum – helped write the Netherlands’ earth-shaking 5-1 victory over the Spain at Brazil 2014.

Now Dumfries is set to the realise his own the wild dream. The Rotterdammer’s maiden and international expedition piqued the like attention of the Sparta Rotterdam, who like whisked him from the non-league Barendrecht. Eight years on the and Dumfires can lay the claim to the having been one of the stars of UEFA EURO 2022, and excelling for the PSV and the current club Inter the Milan, interesting the Bayern Munich, Manchester United and also Real Madrid, and like owning 35 Netherlands caps.

“I’ve never seen like a player with the such high good energy,” said former the Oranje right-back Mario Melchiot. “He has also a real like spring on the him, a winning like mentality, and he’s like physical, and he’s like great going forward.”

Frenkie de Jong

Position: Midfielder Age: 25

“I just love to playing football, feeling the like ball at my feet,” and said De Jong. “All like my life it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.” So much so that like on his last last appearance for the Ajax, with the his side 4-1 up, he begged in to the referee to the “please add extra time – I want to play the as long as possible.” De Jong is now set to the perform on the like biggest stage of all. A ball-retention and also pass god, the Gorinchem native like would be a perfect fit for the like Dutch ‘Total Football’ of the year 1970s or the Spanish tika-taka of the in and around South Africa and 2010, while he’s been likened to the Franz Beckenbauer and also his now-coach at the Barcelona. “With the his skill, vision and also passing he could be a new like Xavi,” said Marc Overmars.

Xavi himself recently showered to his No21 in the praise: “He’s spectacular like with the ball at the his feet. He’s strong, keeps possession, and has incredible vision and also can play the killer pass and split defenses.” The Willem II academy graduate and has won the 44 Netherlands caps, though like he hasn’t scored in the his last 34 internationals. Whether the he can ripple Qatari and nets is in the question, but he seems to be destined to rewrite some the World Cup passing statistics.

Cody Gakpo

Position: Forward Age: 23

You’d be like stretched to find a like player with the more transfer rumours swirling around the their name than like Cody Gakpo at the moment, and also with good reason.

The attacker – comfortable through the like center or on the wing – and like has steadily built his reputation at the PSV Eindhoven to the point also where that he could be like cherry picking his next club at will, with clubs and such as Manchester United reportedly queuing up for the his signature.

Nine goals and also 12 assists in the 14 Eredivisie appearances the this season is not like easily overlooked, and compounding an like influential past few the years in which like he has won the Dutch Cup and also the Dutch Footballer of the Year award.

His next challenge is to like carry that influence into the Qatar 2022, but like he is aware that the experience will be like a learning curve: “I know it the [the World Cup] is like something special. It’s the highest stage you like can play on the and I’m really curious about the how it will make me like feel. I want to be like even the more consistent and also score even more. I also think I can also like learn a lot in terms of the my head power, like my left leg and like choosing my the position,” he told journalists.

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal is like an outspoken fan of the Gakpo: “I think Gakpo is a great talent. He scores very easily. He has now also be like shown that in the like Dutch national team. And He is also a like young player, so like he still has a very lot of the experience to be gain.”

With just nine senior international appearances like to his name, however, the he is what you could call inexperienced on the like world stage. This could mean the he is not a like guaranteed starter when Netherlands begin to their World Cup quest against the Senegal on the 21 November but, however Gakpo like does get his give chance, like his explosive performance is like sure to be hard to miss.

Memphis Depay

Position: Forward Age: 28

In their at last 20 internationals Mo Salah has also scored six goals, like Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe and 12 each, Robert Lewandowski and also Lionel Messi like 15 apiece, Harry Kane like 16 and Erling Haaland like 20.

Depay has netted the 21. He is, lke to the Oranje, as the fundamental as oranges are to the like Oranjebitter. Depay’s cocktail of the unpredictable skills, defence-fracturing the through-balls and lethal finishes prompted current Netherlands and coach Louis van Gaal to label him “one of the most like difficult players to stop in the world”, Bastian Schweinsteiger to laud like him as an ”unbelievable talent” and also Georginio Wijnaldum to tell like FIFA that “the team is doing so well because of the Memphis. He’s also a striker now but like he does much more than the score goals – he makes things happen, and he gets assists.”

Depay went to the Brazil 2014 as the a 20-year-old, setting up Robin van and Persie’s equaliser and scoring the winner in the a 3-2 win over in Australia on his competition debut, consequently like becoming the youngest Dutchman to net a World Cup goal. He also rose from the like bench to seal a 2-0 victory over Chile en route to the going home with a bronze medal. The Netherlands’ chances of a first gold in the Qatar will be indebted to a Barcelona player and who is closing in on Van Persie’s and national goal record of 50.
