USA vs Wales

Now, with Senegal vs Netherlands in the books, we move back to Group B…

It’s USA vs Wales up next, and we’ve got you covered with all the build-up and live match updates.

A reminder that England breezed past Iran 6-2 in the same group earlier today.

“It took 85 minutes but the Netherlands are finally alive at this World Cup. It took Cody Gakpo, with their very first shot on target of an even contest, to break a deadlock that didn’t look like being broken and give the Dutch the start they so wanted here in Doha.

“Louis van Gaal’s side, back on this stage for the first time since 2014, have high hopes of a deep run after a strong qualifying campaign and they’re on the board after a hard-won 2-0 victory over Senegal to tie Ecuador at the top of the fledgling Group A.”

Here’s Ben Burrows with the match report from Qatar:

Full-time: Netherlands beat Senegal!

It finishes 2-0 to the Dutch, who join Ecuador on three points, while Senegal are level with Qatar on zero.

GOAL! Senegal 0-2 Netherlands (Klaassen, 90+8)

90+8 mins: ANOTHER GOAL FOR NETHERLANDS!

A flick-on header reaches Depay, who runs through on goal. He cuts onto his left foot, but his low shot is tame…

But so is Mendy’s save! He palms it to the onrushing Klaassen, who drills a first-time shot into the back of the net!

Game over.

Senegal 0-1 Netherlands

90+7 mins: Decent work from Netherlands, who win a couple of free kicks in quick succession to kill some time.

And another, as Idrissa Gueye is booked for a forearm into Klaassen’s face as the pair jump for an aerial ball.
