Wales, on the other hand, will end a 64-year wait without participating in a championship of this kind. The only story of the representative currently having Gareth Bale as one of his figures was in Sweden 58, when he reached the quarterfinals, in which case he lost to Brazil.

The Netherlands have had great sides throughout their history but have never been able to be crowned world champions and have had to settle for second place three times. This is the goal that Louis Van Gaal will undoubtedly pursue, who will lead the Dutch team for the second time in his career (the previous one was in Brazil 2014).
​ “The fact that we want to win the World Cup doesn’t necessarily mean that we will. It’s my goal and you have to define it. So you can imagine it and that will help you in the process. It may be a bit ambitious for some, but it works,” acknowledged the coach in dialogue with Fifa, in the preview of the match against Senegal, which will make its debut in Qatar 2022.

The Netherlands team comes into the tournament with a big gift, having achieved a comfortable ranking at the Final Four of the European Nations League. In fact, he went 15 games without defeat.

Despite extreme optimism in Senegal that Sadio Mané could play in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the Bayern Munich player was unable to recover from the injury sustained on 8 November in a Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen and was ruled out of the football’s top event.

This is the main setback that Senegal will have to overcome, a team that survived the group stage of the Qualifiers unbeaten and that, in the decisive round, left on the street, on penalties, none other than Egypt led by Mohamed Salah, one of the great absentees of the competition.

Led by Aliou Cissé, Senegal recently faced Bolivia (2-0 win) and Iran (1-1 draw). Previously, they finished third in the Cosafa Cup (Council of South African Football Associations) after winning on penalties against Mozambique.
