An all-but guaranteed passport to the 2022 FIFA World Cup knockout stages is on offer for the Netherlands and Ecuador on Friday.
Having both opened their tournaments with wins, the chance to claim another three points and control of Group A is on offer when they meet at the Khalifa International Stadium.
Ecuador outclassed hosts Qatar in the curtain-raiser to the tournament, but they will face a step up in class against the No. 8-ranked Dutch.
The Netherlands scored two late goals to see off the challenge of Senegal in their first-round match, justifying their favorite's tag in this pool.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the match in Canada on TV or online via live stream.

Bell Media offers streaming via the TSN app, TSN GO, and on the TSN website, TSN.ca. For Bell Media cable customers with TSN in their subscription package, they can sign in to the TSN GO app with their cable login and access content for non additional charge.
Fans can also purchase a subscription to the streaming service via either a monthly or yearly subscription, allowing fans without cable to access all of TSN's content, including the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
As CTV is also a Bell Media channel, the streaming process for games available on CTV is not different than those on TSN. However, more fans will be able to access streaming for these games.
