World Cup 2022: All the major action and talking points from Day Two.
It was an eventful day on Sunday, as the tournament hosts Qatar lost 2-0 to Ecuador at the Al Bayt Stadium.
Qatar were utterly dreadful and became the first host nation to ever lose their opening game in the 96-year history of the World Cup.
Ecuador could regret not scoring more goals ahead of facing the Netherlands and Senegal, who should both make light work of the hosts.
Qatar spent a reported £200billion on staging the tournament, which has been shrouded in controversy since it was awarded to the tiny Gulf nation back in 2010.
Yet, after 12 years of preparation, thousands of Qatar fans had seen enough after 45 minutes of the opening match and left the table with their team trailing 2-0.
