The Football World Cup is to be played in Qatar from 21 November this year. This time the first match is to be played between Netherlands and Senegal. Now news is coming that the schedule of the first match can be changed. The World Cup is expected to start a day earlier on November 20 (Sunday). The first match could be between hosts Qatar and Ecuador.
This Group A match between Qatar and Ecuador is the third match of the tournament as per the schedule. According to tradition, the first match of the FIFA World Cup is played by the host team or the defending champion team. In such a situation, if the schedule does not change, then this tradition will be broken. The final decision on this will be made by the Bureau of the FIFA Council. This includes six confederation presidents and FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
