The Qatar vs Senegal live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

Qatar vs Senegal preview

For a game 10 years in the making, Qatari fans will be wishing that their opening match against Ecuador never happened. In truth, they offered little quality going forward and failed to muster a shot on target although the second half showed some improvement. After the disappointing result, the hosts realistically need to win this fixture as no one will expect them to defeat a strong Netherlands side in their third group game. Despite the defeat, Felix Sanchez’s side should now be used to the eyes of the world being on them and can build on a steady second period. 

Senegal also drew a blank in their opening loss to the Netherlands, but they managed to keep the Oranje at bay for 80 minutes until Cody Gakpo managed to finally breach their defense. Fans of the Lions of Teranga will be especially worried about goalkeeper Edouard Mendy’s performance. Usually one of the stars of the team, the Chelsea player could have done better for both of the goals his team conceded. They did at least prove they have no problems fashioning chances taking 15 shots (more than the Netherlands) but without captain and star forward Sadio Mane, they couldn’t convert them. 

With both teams desperate for three points, and looking to avoid an early exit, the Qatar vs Senegal live stream is one to definitely tune in to.  

Qatar vs Senegal team news

Qatar forward Ahmed Alaaeldin wasn’t able to return to full fitness in time for the opener and he misses out again. Akram Afif is still the first name on the team sheet up front, but will need to be careful after picking up a yellow card against Ecuador. 

After Sadio Mane’s withdrawal from the squad, Aliou Cisse called up Moussa Ndiaye to the squad but the young fullback has never been capped for the national team and doesn't make the starting XI. Cheikou Kouyate went off injured against the Netherlands and misses this match. Kalidou Koulibaly of course starts and despite his shaky performance, Edouard Mendy keeps his place. 

Qatar: Barsham, Miguel, Hassan, Mohamad, Al-Haydos, Afif, Boudiaf, Ahmed, Madibo, Khoukhi, Ali.

Senegal: Mendy, Sabaly, Koulibaly, Diallo, Mendy, Diedhiou, Gueye, Jakobs, Diatta, Sarr, Dia.
