Senegal And Netherlands Score Qatar 2022

Senegal And Netherlands Score Qatar 2022: Cody Gakpo, the top scorer in the Eredivisie, scored in his World Cup debut in the 84th minute, and Davy Klaassen added a goal in stoppage time as the Netherlands defeated Senegal 2-0 to begin their tournament in Qatar.

Up until the Dutch late show, the African champions, who badly missed injured star Sadio Mane, had opportunities but the game lacked quality in the final third.

The Netherlands defeated Senegal 2-0 in their World Cup opener thanks to goals from Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaassen, which helped the Oranje tie Ecuador for first place in Group A.

Gakpo leaped to meet a brilliantly weighted Frenkie de Jong cross and head into an open net, leaving Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy trapped in a no-land man’s as a lifeless second half appeared to be fizzling out.

De Jong made a mistake in the first half when he missed a fantastic opportunity to beat Mendy one-on-one, but his assist made up for it.

After the break, Senegal twice put rookie Dutch goalkeeper Andries Noppert to the test, but in the absence of injured star player Sadio Mane, they were unable to make a breakthrough.
Memphis Depay, a crucial striker for the Netherlands, was also absent, but in the second half, he unexpectedly made his first appearance since suffering an injury in September from the bench.

He also contributed to the game-winning goal in the 99th minute, when Depay’s effort was sloppily parried by Mendy and redirected in by fellow replacement Klaassen.
