Although we are still at the beginning of the second round, some games in the Qatar Cup are already decisive and teams can leave the field eliminated or classified.
Check out who said goodbye early at the Worlds.
With two accumulated defeats, to Ecuador (2-0) and Senegal (3-1), host Qatar is the first team to mathematically say goodbye to the Cup. Even if the Netherlands wins, the home team would reach a maximum of 3 points. The draw this Thursday between the Dutch and Ecuadorians has already left both with 4 points. Therefore, there is no possibility for the Qataris to finish second. Qatar x Netherlands takes place this Tuesday (29), with the Dutch, Ecuadorians and Senegalese still fighting for first and second places.
The Qataris were the first team to lose the opening two games of the Cup as hosts.
This Saturday (26), Argentina (Group C) and Australia (Group D) are at risk of elimination in case of defeat.
