Qatar 0 Ecuador 2

Ecuador made a winning start to the World Cup after defeating host nation Qatar in the opening game of the tournament today.

Enner Valencia, the former West Ham United striker, who also spent a season on loan at Everton, sealed the comfortable victory with two first-half goals.

Qatar have become the first World Cup hosts to lose their opening game.

Valencia, who had a close-range header ruled out for offside by the video assistant, opened the scoring with a penalty in the sixteenth minute after being brought down by Qatar goalkeeper Saad al-Sheeb.

He netted his second in the 31st minute with a powerful header.
