How to Watch Netherlands vs. Senegal in 2022 FIFA World Cup Group A Match originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Following Qatar and Ecuador’s World Cup and Group A opener on Sunday, Nov. 20, the other two teams in the group will face off a day later: the Netherlands and Senegal.
If both teams can stay healthy, they should manage to advance to the knockout stage over Qatar and Ecuador, though Senegal’s biggest star, Sadio Mané, is questionable to play the first game due to a lower-leg injury he suffered while with Bayern Munich.
It won’t be easy for Senegal to get past a strong Dutchmen defense without Mané, so they’ll need to rely on some of their speedy youngsters up top to wreak havoc in open space.

Who are the players to watch in Netherlands vs. Senegal?
For the Oranje, it’s all about the backline. Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool), Matthijs de Ligt (Bayern Munich), Stefan de Vrij (Inter Milan), Denzel Dumfries (Inter Milan) and Tyrell Malacia (Manchester United) are just some of the top-quality options at Louis Van Gaal’s disposal. Memphis Depay (Barcelona) and Cody Gakpo (PSV) are two of the Netherland’s top goal-scoring threats in the final third.
Then for the Lions of Teranga, Mané is one of the marquee names if he can suit up. If not, the responsibilities on the shoulders of the Chelsea duo Éduoard Mendy (GK) and Kalidou Koulibaly (CB) to prevent goals could be the difference. Young left-back Ismail Jakobs (AS Monaco) could be another attacking outlet for Senegal down the left flank in Mané’s potential absence.
