Qatar will return to competition on Friday after becoming the first host nation in World Cup history to drop their first match, a 1-0 loss to Ecuador on the opening night of the tournament.
Qatar get another chance for a victory against Senegal, which also lost their opener.
Senegal are without Sadio Mane, the Bayern Munich forward who was ruled out of the tournament with a leg injury.
Without Mane at the World Cup, Senegal lost to the Netherlands 2-0 and coach Aliou Cissé is demanding more from forwards Ismaila Sarr and Krépin Diatta.
Concacaf team the USA will also be in action on the day as the Americans are down to face England.
The USA are the underdogs following their 1-1 draw with Wales, while England are coming off a 6-2 opening win over Iran.
A win for England would put the Three Lions into the round of the 16 with one game still to play.
See Friday’s schedule below:
5:00 am – Wales vs Iran
2:00 pm – England vs USA
8:00 am – Qatar vs Senegal
