As for Ecuador, they have an impressive crop of young players such as Moises Caicedo, Purvis Estupinan (both in Brighton) and José Cifuentes are some of the rising stars. Both Qatar and Ecuador will be happy with this draw, but know that Senegal and the Netherlands are the favorites to get out of Group A.

Key storylines, players to keep an eye on

Qatar has been led by Spanish coach Felix Sanchez since 2017 and their entire team plays in the domestic league. They are a close-knit group and five of their World Cup team have played over 100 matches as they prepare for their first ever World Cup appearance. Qatar captain Hassan Al-Haidos has an incredible 169 caps and the Al-Saad star has 36 international goals. Almoez Ali and Akram Afif are also dangerous at the top, while Abdulaziz Hatem is a midfield star.

For Ecuador, the above young band is extremely talented, but Enner Valencia is the main man of La Tri. He scored 35 goals in 74 matches and is having a sensational season with Turkish giants Fenerbahce, scoring 13 goals in 12 league matches. Getting out of World Cup qualification in South America is a huge achievement and Ecuador is not to be underestimated. They reached the round of 16 of the 2006 World Cup and have qualified for four of the last six tournaments.

There are new faces such as Canada and (sort of) the US men’s national team as fellow confederates Costa Rica and Mexico joined CONCACAF neighbors.

This should be the last World Cup for Lionel Messi and possibly Cristiano Ronaldo, although the Portuguese is making headlines for a variety of reasons heading to Qatar.
