Hosts Qatar became the first team to be eliminated from the World Cup after Group A rivals the Netherlands and Ecuador drew 1-1 this morning.

Qatar was beaten 3-1 by Senegal in their second match.

The Dutch and Ecuador each have four points, Senegal has three.

The hosts cannot qualify despite the result of their final match against the Netherlands on Wednesday.
