Qatar’s opener was scheduled to be the third match on Monday at 7 pm local time (4 p.m. GMT, 11 a.m. ET), and sources have told ESPN that moving it to Sunday will allow the opening ceremony to take greater prominence.

Senegal vs. Netherlands will now be played at 7 pm on Monday — the slot left vacant by Qatar’s match being moved — with the other two games on that day — England vs. IR Iran and the United States vs. Wales — unaffected.
