As they prepare to begin their FIFA World Cup campaign in Qatar on a fantastic note, Netherlands will play Senegal in their opening game.
The Dutch squad is most likely to defeat Senegal in the game as they go into the game with squad filled of superstars, but they shouldn’t underestimate their opponents because Senegal has some of the greatest players in Europe who could pull off an unexpected victory over Netherlands.
Ismaila Sarr, a player for Watford, is one of those players who is expected to start against Netherlands.
The Senegalese winger is an excellent goal scorer and assist producer; in 17 EPL games, he has scored 6 goals and contributed 4 assists. He has a great delivery rate, but his ability to convert chances could be put to the test against Netherlands.
Another player is Idrissa Gana Gueye, the midfielder is one of the best passers the Senegalese squad could boast of.
With over 80% passing accuracy in 10 games for Everton this season, he is a man to watch out for. He is also great when it comes to interceptions and clearances.
Kalidou Koulibaly is also a player to watch out for and Netherlands needs to be wary of the Chelsea star man. Koulibaly’s areas of specialization are tackling, interceptions, and clearances, he boast of over 85% tackling success rate when it also comes to passing accuracy.
