A quick recap: Cody Gakpo scored for the Netherlands in the sixth minute, but the goal was canceled out by Enner Valencia a few minutes after half-time. But while the score was level, the performance was poor and Ecuador may feel aggrieved for not taking all three points. They put their European opponents under extreme pressure for a long time, especially throughout the second half, and came close to scoring a second goal on several occasions.
peep! peep! Puff puff! It’s all over and the points are shared, meaning hosts Qatar are now unable to advance to the knockout stages, regardless of how they perform in their final group game against the Netherlands.

82 minutes: Going into the final 10 minutes (and the rest of the time), Ecuador dominated the second half.

That disallowed goal. Ecuador takes the corner. The ball reaches the near post and Moises Caicedo kicks it away for Angelo Preciado to score. He fired from distance and his shot was deflected by Estupinan from the edge of the six-yard box to the side of Dutch goalkeeper Andres Norpert. Unfortunately for Ecuador, their defender Jackson Poroso was standing in an offside position directly in front of Nopert, blocking the goalkeeper’s view of the game.
peep! Mustapha Ghorbal blew a breath at half-time before leaving to hear several Ecuadorians protest in unison. The Netherlands took the lead in the sixth minute with a brilliant Cody Gakpo strike, but they certainly didn’t take the lead quite their way. Ecuador gave them plenty to think about and thought they had leveled at half-time, but Pervis Estupinan’s shot was disallowed for offside.
God! Estupinan headed the ball into the Netherlands goal from a corner and turned away in celebration, but his ‘goal’ was ruled out for offside. One of his teammates stood in front of the goalkeeper and blocked his view, but we’ll have time to figure out what happened later.

36 minutes: “What if De Ligt doesn’t play?” asked Dechlan Brennan. “Injured? Or he simply hasn’t maintained the unbeatable status he had a few years ago.”
Well, he might have been injured, but I guess he was dropped because he played really badly in his opening match against Senegal.
33 minutes: Set-pieces went nowhere as Holland took the lead in the sixth minute thanks to a superb display from Cody Gakpo. Every performance from the PSV winger increases his value and this promises to be
interesting An extremely tedious January bidding war for his signature.
