Almoez Ali of Qatar and goalkeeper Meshaal Barsham of Qatar look dejected after the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group A match between Qatar and Senegal at Al Thumama Stadium on November 25, 2022 in Doha, Qatar.

Host country Qatar became the first team to be knocked out of the 2022 World Cup, following their 3-1 loss to Senegal in Group A and the 1-1 draw between the Netherlands and Portugal. Ecuador.

Their premature exit also sees them set the unwanted record of becoming the first host country to emerge from the tournament after just two group matches. Only one other host had ever been knocked out in the first round, regardless of format: South Africa in 2010.
