On Monday, Senegal will face the Netherlands in Group A of the 2022 World Cup. Senegal vs Netherlands will be an interesting game as these two teams will meet for the 1st time ever in any football event.
Senegal – The Senegal national team made the headlines when they beat Egypt under the leadership of Sadio Mane to clinch their first-ever AFCON title. However, Senegal’s happy face didn’t last long as they are dealing with a major blow even before the World Cup began, with Sadio Mane ruled out due to a fibula injury. But still, they have enough manpower to fill the void of Sadio Mane and keep their heads up high in this competition.
Netherlands – The Dutch side are in great shape heading into their first World Cup since 2014. The Dutch have gone 15 games without a loss since Louis van Gaal came out of retirement and was hired as manager for the third time in 2021. The Netherlands entered the World Cup in fine form under Louis van Gaal, having reached the UEFA Nations League finals for the second time in three seasons. With a star-studded squad, the Oranje side will slightly have the upper hand over the AFCON winners.

Dream 11 Top Picks and Player Stats
Kalidou Koulibaly and Eduardo Mendy: The Chelsea duo have been performing well in the PL this season. Also for the national team, they have been quite strong while leading the defensive line. Mendy has been very clinical with the gloves while Koulibaly has been very good in guiding the backline.
Cody Gakpo: The rising star is one of the most exciting players in this World Cup edition. Gakpo is currently on a hot streak and playing as a number 10 in the National team, so his creativity and influence will be crucial to their goal-scoring chances. The Dutch will almost certainly rely on his presence to get them through to the knockout stage.
