Qatar vs Senegal live updates: Team news, line-ups, analysis and start time


Qatar goalkeeper Saad Al Sheeb struggled in the opening day loss to Ecuador, and the nation’s back-up keepers have featured in pre-tournament friendlies.

If Qatar’s manager opts to make a change, then Meshaal Barsham is the likely choice given he saved the deciding penalty in their Arab Cup final victory over Egypt in 2021.

Captain Hassan Al Haydos is set to earn his 171st cap for Qatar here in midfield as one of five centurions expected to start.

Senegal have revealed that Abdou Diallo is fine to return to training immediately despite going off with muscle cramps against Holland.

That will be a relief as Diallo has filled in as a makeshift left-back given the injury to Fode Ballo-Toure in the lead up to the finals.

However, Cheikhou Kouyate is not as fortunate, as the Nottingham Forest midfielder was stretched off with a muscle problem of his own and will miss this fixture.
