Qatar vs Ecuador Preview

While the Qatar national team makes its World Cup debut by virtue of being the host country, the team could make some noise in Group A play.

“We already know that there is that pressure, and we don’t have to add to it,” Qatar head coach Felix Sánchez said via The Guardian. “We try to isolate ourselves from the noise around us and focus on getting our best performance. It’s difficult because then you go on to the pitch, you see 60,000 people. It’s the first World Cup match and there’s so much expectation that it’s hard, but that experience will help them.”

Ecuador can’t look past Qatar in the first match of the World  Cup. Qatar beat Ecuador 4-3 in a 2018 friendly match, and the two countries split another previous draw. Ecuador has also beaten Qatar once in the past.

Qatar also has played well in Al Bayt Stadium of late with three-consecutive wins by the combined score of  9-0. The national team also won the Asian Cup in 2019.

“Qatar did well [as a guest team in 2019] in Copa America when they had the chance to play here,” Ecuador head coach Gustavo Alfaro said via The Athletic’s Andy Naylor. “They are on a 12-year project and it shows.”

Goalkeeper Saad Al Sheeb could make the difference on Sunday for Qatar if he can stymie the Ecuador attack. Qatar also has offense with striker Ali Almoez and forward Hassan Al-Haydos. Sánchez wants his team to take an aggressive approach on the attack.

“It would be suicide to try to take the initiative if we want to be competitive,” Sánchez said via The Guardian. “We try to be compact defensively, allow the minimum opportunities and be strong in transitions.”

Ecuador features forward Enner Valencia, midfielder Moises Caicedo, and left back Pervis Estupian. For Ecuador, it marks the country’s first appearance at the World Cup since 2014 when the team went 1-1-1 in group play  and failed to advance.

“I quoted [Winston] Churchill to them, saying that if you don’t change your opinion you’re not changing anything, so we had to change some things,” Alfaro said via Naylor. “I have the youngest team in South America. We also have the highest defensive line in South America. The press and recovering the ball is based on the speed and physical strength of the players.”
