Qatar vs Ecuador Live Stream: World Cup 2022 opening game kick-off time, TV channel and team news

The 2022 FIFA World Cup kicks off on Sunday, 20 November. Qatar will host Ecuador in the opening game. Here’s how to watch Qatar vs Ecuador live stream free online. 

Qatar has never played in a World Cup or is not even close to doing so. It is, therefore, only here because it is the host country. Nevertheless, one must recognize the Qatari team’s recent successes. The team won the 2019 Asian Cup and performed very well there.

The Qatar team is managed by Felix Sanchez, who has played for the country since 2006. Incidentally, all the players called up to the national team for the World Cup play in the Qatar championship. The Qatari team comes into this meeting with a four-game winning streak.

Ecuador played its first World Cup game in 2002 and has only missed two World Cups. Head coach Gonzalo Alfaro has done an excellent job and built a strong team. And this is despite Ecuador having very few players playing in the top five leagues.
