A lot is riding on the final matches of the group stage. Ecuador vs Senegal. A win or draw for Ecuador would put them into the elimination round. A win would get Senegal out of the group stage. If they draw and the Netherlands loses they will tie and could get out of the group stage on tiebreakers. This should be a close match with elimination round hopes on the line for both teams.

Netherlands vs Qatar. Qatar is already eliminated. With a draw or win the Netherlands will get past the group stage. If the Netherlands loses and Ecuador and Senegal draw, the Netherlands would only advance if they win the tiebreakers. This should be an easier match though for the Netherlands. I think they will win this game to advance.

Iran vs the United States. There is a lot of drama going on leading up to this match. I will talk about this match in detail in tomorrow morning’s game preview. If Iran wins or draws, they will advance to the elimination stage. If the United States wins they will advance past the elimination stage.

Wales vs England. If Wales wins they could advance on tiebreakers. If England wins or the match ends in a draw they will advance past the group stage.
