Netherlands go to knockouts after 2-0 win against Qatar

A battle of high stakes for both teams was seen today as the Netherlands and Qatar met at Al Bayt stadium, despite the Dutch only needing a draw to qualify for the last 16.

For the hosts, they were looking for at least one win before making their exit from the tournament. After two losses to Ecuador and Senegal, a win would have secured some consolation pride for Al-Annabi.

The Netherlands scored the opening goal thanks to Cody Gakpo, putting them in a great position to move to the knockout round. Gakpo has already scored three times in the 2022 World Cup.

The Netherlands then went up 2-0, thanks to a Frenkie De Jong goal.

Qatar was positioned quite deeply. The ball was eventually won by Mohammad, who dashed for a counter. Qatar was then able to send another attack, after being initially thwarted by the Dutch defence.
