DOHA:  Netherlands beat Senegal 2-0 in their opening Group A  FIFA match at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, on Tuesday night. With this win, Netherlands leveled at the top of the group with Ecuador, who beat hosts Qatar 2-0 in the tournament's opening match on Sunday. 

As per AIR News reports, the Netherlands dominated the first half and provided regular pressure around the Senegal penalty area, but were unable to score any goal. The Netherlands found its touch late on in the second half and managed to score two goals. Gakpo broke the deadlock when he met a delightful deep cross from De Jong and headed the Netherlands into the lead. Referee Wilton Pereira Sampaio signaled for eight minutes of added time, and the Netherlands used it well as Memphis Depay's shot forced Mendy to parry to Klaassen, who provided a comfortable 2-0 lead.
