The Three Best Moments from Day 10 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup – NBC Los Angeles

Day 10 of the World Cup has officially concluded and we can take a bow on who will go where in both Group A and Group B.

After an intense game on Tuesday morning, the Netherlands defeated Qatar 2-0 while Senegal secured a 2-1 victory over Ecuador. For Group A, both the Netherlands and Senegal qualified for the round of 16, while Qatar and Ecuador were the eliminated nations.

We saw two more exciting games on the 2pm ET schedule where the US managed to defeat Iran 1-0 after a stunning goal from Christian Pulisic and England swept Wales 3-0 after an incredible surge in the second half.

Let’s take a look at some of the biggest moments from day ten of the 2022 FIFA World Cup:

Kalidou Koulibaly scores Senegal’s winning goal over Ecuador

The first big moment came during one of two games scheduled at 10 am ET. During the Senegal-Ecuador match, Kalidou Koulibaly led Senegal to new heights.

Senegal’s Ismaïla Sarr scored the first goal in the 44th minute of play, which was followed shortly after by an Ecuadorian goal to tie the match 1–1. Minutes later, captain Koulibaly pounced with a goal that would put Ecuador out of contention and advance Senegal to the next stage of the World Cup.

Senegal cruised to a 2-1 victory and became the first African nation to earn their place in the round of 16 in Qatar.

Christian Pulisic’s goal puts the USMNT into the round of 16

This moment was pivotal in the USMNT’s performance at the World Cup, as well as in Christian Pulisic’s career. The 24-year-old put the stars and stripes on the board after scoring on 38 minutes against Iran in the Group B final.

Sergiño Dest assisted into the penalty area where Pulisic was able to score after a deep shot from Weston McKennie.

This goal clinched the United States’ place in the Round of 16 with an impending showdown against the Netherlands, giving them a chance to advance to the 2022 World Cup.

Pulisic was injured during the play but hopes to be ready for Saturday’s game.

Marcus Rashford scores a brace for the Three Lions vs. wales

In the 50th minute, star striker Marcus Rashford scored for England during the Group B final against Wales. The free kick went straight into the top right corner over Danny Ward.

Less than two minutes later, Phil Foden scored after a great assist from Harry Kane. Then, in the 68th minute, Rashford fired another shot through Ward’s legs.

England will now play Senegal on Sunday in the round of 16.
