Qatar 2022 – All the Goals, Moments, Highlights, Action From Day 6 of World Cup

by: AugustineMbam


The major highlight of day 6 of the Qatar World Cup 2022 was the game between the host country and the African Champions, Senegal. Qatar was eliminated from the world cup group stage and is the second host country to make such a record after South Africa in 2010. 

Qatar was thoroughly outplayed in the game and barely had to keep up with the high press of Senegal. Although they got their chances during the gameplay, they could have used them better. 

Before Qatar vs. Senegal game, Iran had surprised Wales by reducing their chances of making it to the next world cup stage. The game also saw the tournament’s first red card, which went to Wales goalkeeper Hennessey. Hennessy was sent out of the game after he engaged in a shocking challenge against his opponent. 

The Netherlands vs. Ecuador was not a boring game, nor was it very interesting — It was just a game that showed two teams fighting to top their group at the World Cup. The game ended in a draw, with Gakpo and Valencia ensuring that the two teams returned with a point each. 

The last game of the day was England vs. the USA, which would have settled the debate between soccer and football. However, the game ended in a draw, with many football fans angry with the tactics and plans of England manager Gareth Southgate. Despite how star-studded the England team was, the USA was pretty good in defense. 

Wales vs. Iran Highlights and Summary

Wales was shocked at the Qatar World Cup 2022 after Iran scored two stoppage-time goals to deny them from topping their table. Roozbeh and Rezaeian scored the two goals against a ten-man Wales. 

After England smashed six goals to two by Iran, they learned their lessons and took revenge on England’s neighbor Wales. After five changes made by the Iran head coach, Iran looked like a different team. 

Wales’s shot-stopper was sent off in the 85th minute after a nasty challenge on Mehdi Taremi, which made Iran take advantage of the situation. The only time Wales got a chance at the goal was during the 12th minute when Kieffer Moore almost scored from Robert’s cross.

Qatar vs. Senegal Highlights and Summary

Qatar showed that they were not still ready for a high-pressure tournament like the World Cup; they played terrible football. On the other hand, Senegal showed that they were still alive in the tournament despite the defeat they suffered from the Netherlands. 

The only positive thing Qatar took away after the game was that they scored their first world cup goal of 2022 world cup — But generally, they had a very bad performance. After the Netherlands drew with Ecuador, it was confirmed that Qatar was out of the tournament. 

Senegal was likely to score when the game started when Idrissa Gueye placed a wide shot. The first goal for Senegal was a defensive mistake after Boulem Khouki lost his footing, and this presented an opportunity for Boulaye Dia. In the 49th minute, Senegal struck again from Diedhiou’s header. 

Qatar quickly responded after Muntari scored a beautiful header from Mohammad’s cross. After having feelings of a comeback, Senegal struck again as Bamba fired the ball into the net.

The Netherlands faced Ecuador with both trying to top their group, but they settled for a draw after Enner Valencia’s goal canceled Gakpo’s early strike. 

Ecuador was the side that had the most chances in the game, with Valencia trying to put his country ahead of the Netherlands. Enner Valencia had sent so many crosses into the Netherlands penalty area, and one of them led Ecuador to equalize in the 49th minute. 

At the end of the match, both countries made efforts to score, but it all came to nothing, and both now stand at 4 points each in their group. Ecuador talisman Enner Valencia also suffered a terrible knee injury and was taken away on a stretcher.

England vs. USA Highlights and Summary

England vs. USA of Group B was one of the boring games of the tournament, with England failing to capitalize on their star-studded squad. 

The United States, on the other hand, put in an impressive performance, although they lacked the goals upfront. Their talisman Christain Pulicic was very active in the game and provided some crosses into England’s box, although it didn’t end up with a goal. 

Gareth Southgate will have some questions to answer, as he was pretty confused about what to do with his players, who put up a chaotic performance during the game. 



(4-2-3-1): Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Bellingham, Rice; Saka, Mount, Sterling; Kane


(4-3-3): Turner; Dest, Zimmerman, Ream, A. Robinson; McKennie, Adams, Musah; Weah, H. Wright, Pulisic
