Qatar and Senegal will look to bounce back from their losses in the first match when they meet in Group A on Friday.
Hosts Qatar began the tournament by taking on Ecuador on Sunday but rarely seemed to trouble their South American opponents as they went down 2-0.
Meanwhile, Senegal held off the Netherlands until the 84th minute, but late goals from Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaassen sealed victory for Louis Van Gaal’s men.

Qatar vs Senegal: Team News
Saad Al Sheeb had a memorable World Cup debut as Qatar’s goalkeeper in Sunday’s opening game against Ecuador.
The goalkeeper was not covered in glory in the first three minutes when he struck a free-kick, and only blushed when Enner Valencia’s header was ruled out for offside in the previous one.
However, he was not so lucky later in the half, as he conceded a penalty after sending Valencia out, and manager Félix Sánchez could be considering his other goalkeeping options ahead of his team’s second game.
Without their injured talisman Sadio Mane, Senegal seemed to lack firepower in the final third against the Netherlands, and Aliou Cissé may be considering freshening things up in attack.
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy had a tough night in that match and arguably could have done better on both goals. However, given his pedigree at the highest level, it seems likely Mendy will keep his starting spot for now.
