For the first time in history, Qatar will participate in the World Cup. They will be hosting this tournament and thanks to that, they secured an appearance without having to play in the qualifications. In 2019, Qatar won the Asian Cup as an underdog and thus confirmed that football has progressed a lot in that country.

Qatar great progress began in 2006 when Felix Sanchez arrived in that country. After a decade of work in Barcelona, he created a football program in Qatar. From 2013 to 2017, he worked as head coach of U-19 selection, and then took over national team. Qatar is playing very well under his leadership and he is main reason why they won the Asian Cup three years ago.

In their team, Qatar doesn’t have a single international player. All players play in domestic league and are unknown for general public. The best player is striker Almoez Ali, who is originally from Sudan. Captain Hassan Al-Haydos is also important in offensive part, while left back Abdelkarim Hassan is also very dangerous.


Ecuador debuted at the World Cup in 2002. After that, they played two more times. They achieved their best result back in 2006, when they were eliminated in the round of 16 by England. Ecuador played excellent in CONMEBOL qualifications. Although they finished fourth, they spent the most time in third place.

National team superstar is Fenerbahce striker Enner Valencia. Also worth mentioning is Michael Estrada, who was the top scorer in qualifications with several important goals. Carlos Gruezo and Sebas Mendez stand out in midfield, while Robert Arboleda and Piero Hincapie are in charge of defense. Left back Pervis Estupinan is also irreplaceable.

For Ecuador, first match at the World Cup will be the most important one. If they don’t beat Qatar, it will be almost impossible for them to make it to the round of 16. Netherlands and Senegal are much more serious opponents, so failure at the beginning is not an option.


Qatar and Ecuador never played against each other in official match. The only time they met was in a friendly game in 2018 when Qatar won 4:3.

Qatar vs. Ecuador Prediction

Given how stakes are high, neither Qatar nor Ecuador will take any risks in this match. Both teams will wait for their chance and we shoudn’t expect beautiful football. It’s not impossible for this match to end without a single goal.
