The Netherlands team has upped their game since failing to qualify for the last world cup and are in the company of Liverpool's Van Dijk and FC Barcelona ace Memphis Depay and Frenkie De Jong.

The Dutch side is the most favorites to move rounds, as they bring to the group a well-experienced side with depth. Taking nothing away from the Senegalese team, they are the reigning stalwarts of the just concluded African Cup Of Nations, fielding Bayern Munich forward Sadio Mané, a well-rounded footballer, with Chelsea's defender Koulibaly and goalkeeper E. Mendy in goal for the Senegal team. Would be a force to reckon with.

The South American side of Ecuador is also in the running for progression into the next rounds. The Ecuadorians have had a bad run for a while and should be looking at the world cup to pick up some lost form from this group, making it an open race for all teams in Group A of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The finals of the FIFA World Cup will be kicking off from November 20th to December 19th this 2022 year. Qatar will be playing host to the football community as it opens its gates to millions of football lovers from around the globe.

Qatar

This year's FIFA World Cup is a record-breaking one, prepped to be hosted by Qatar in 2010 after beating stiff competition from Australia, the United States of America, South Korea, and Japan. This will be the first time an Arab nation will be hosting the most important football festival in the world. Ever since they clinched the hosting right, the Qatari Football body has affected changes in the national growth program, which has seen Qatar move the FIFA world ranking from 112th to 46th in the word.

Senegal

Netherlands

The orange boys were absent from the last FIFA World Cup and would have much damage control for that mishap; they are the most favored team to top the group stages. The Dutch national team has a well-synergized side, and they pack with it some of Europe's club stars.

Ecuador

The Ecuador team has been through ups and downs lately; they were eliminated by a resilient Argentine side captained by Messi. They are not the toughest in the group, but with experienced football veteran, and former Manchester United player Valencia leading the pack, they can be more than meets the eye.

  • World Current FIFA Rankings: #44;
  • Ranking By Regionals: South America #7;
  • How Many World Cups: #0;

  • Mode Of Qualification: 4th position South American Qualifiers, FIFA World Cup 2022;

Judging by the prowess, quality, and ability of the various teams that constitute Group A, The Netherlands, also known as the orange boys, are favored to head the group, to advance automatically, with Senegal finishing second. The host nation Qatar and Ecuador are seeded as underdogs and may be ousted from the group.
