Group A of the 2022 World Cup is going down to the wire after Ecuador produced a spirited fightback to earn a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands in Doha.

Enner Valencia's second-half strike, his third goal of the tournament, secured his side a deserved share of the spoils after Cody Gakpo, for the second game running, had opened the scoring for Louis van Gaal's men.

The Dutch had looked well set to all-but-clinch qualification when Gakpo struck after just five minutes, but they were unable to build on that early advantage, and Ecuador were full value for their point.

They may have even have clinched all three, only for Gonzalo Plata's strike to rebound to safety off the crossbar.

The stalemate means both teams need a point from their final game on Tuesday to seal qualification for the last 16.

The Netherlands take on Qatar, while Ecuador face Senegal, who got their first win of the tournament earlier on Friday.
