World Cup 2022: All the major action and talking points from Day Two.

It was an eventful day on Sunday, as the tournament hosts Qatar lost 2-0 to Ecuador at the Al Bayt Stadium.

Qatar spent a reported £200billion on staging the tournament, which has been shrouded in controversy since it was awarded to the tiny Gulf nation back in 2010.
