The United States does not begin its 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign until Monday, but the tournament starts the day before with the inaugural match, a Group A match against Ecuador.
Due to an investigation into the eligibility of one of their players, the South American nation faced questions about whether it should be allowed to compete. Still, the Ecuadoreans stood firm and will compete in the World Cup.
La Tri will hope to earn points in the first match to advance to the knockout round, but doing so against the host nation is always a risk. World Cup hosts outperform regardless of their ranking, and they have never lost when kicking off a tournament.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Qatar vs. Ecuador on TV or online via live stream in the United States.
