How to watch the FA Cup first round on TVThe first round of the FA Cup is upon us and that means a host of fascinating matches will be played up and down England and Wales across the weekend, featuring teams from multiple levels. England's oldest and most exciting competition will be mixing all levels of the football pyramid by the time the third round comes along, but a lot of teams will have two games to navigate their way through before the Premier League and Championship sides arrive.
But it didn't cost them, as they prepare to turn their eyes to the evening's Group B games to find out who their opponents in the last 16 will be. What does the result mean? Netherlands head into the last 16 as group winners, where they will face the runner-up in Group B. They are joined by Senegal who beat Ecuador 2-1 in the other Group A game.

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw at the National League outfit’s Plainmoor ground on Sunday to set up a replay.

@SaintMatt7: maybe give tv money to the teams that actually need it and not just show boring games between football league teams… @jsfmurray2003: Is there any danger of an interesting tie being on tele? @DarranPearce: Interesting choices given one was already on TV and the other isn’t that interesting. I thought Wimbledon v Weymouth, Hartlepool v Solihull and Gillingham v Fylde would have been better choices @DN35GTFC: Salford on TV for the FA Cup. Drink! @TheNashFans: Genuinely horrific choices @fearabush24: Y Salford vs Peterborough? @thedanhorler: We all know Torquay are box office. @The_Fenners: Oh look. 🙈 @harvey_jagger: Tbf bet loads of people are dying to watch Salford v Peterborough @GeordieMariner: You could of picked curzon v Cambridge.

However, the squad showed great adaptability to perform well in a system they had not prepared for. It particularly suits how Hurst wants his side to play in away games against sides with the on-the-ball quality that Salford possess, getting that extra body into the midfield to stop the opposition from playing through the thirds with ease. With Luke Waterfall, Andy Smith and Niall Maher putting in a solid display at the back, with the finer details refined, the 3-5-2 set-up could be one that Hurst revisits as he searches for that perfect balance in his team.

Hunt’s mobility made a great screen for the defence, making the most interceptions for Town in the game (5) and the second-most passes (36), giving the ball onto Holohan and Khan to progress the play forward. With three centre-backs on the pitch who spread across the width of the pitch when Town were in possession, Glennon and Clifton were given license to push forward and stretch the Salford backline.

Grimsby managed 18 shots on goal in the game compared to Salford’s 13 despite surrendering 62% of the overall possession to the home side, which illustrates the effectiveness of the counter-attacking game plan. The main issue for Town was the quality of the chances created, with that killer final ball lacking the preciseness at times which stopped one point being three in the end.

Frenkie de Jong of the Netherlands celebrates with team-mate Memphis Depay After 49 minutes it was two. Davy Klaassen's cross came off a defender's head and found Memphis Depay at the far post. His effort from close range was saved, but it fell kindly for De Jong to prod into an empty net from just a few yards. Netherlands thought they had a third on 68 minutes as Steven Berghuis tapped home from close range just a few minutes after coming on as a substitute, but VAR ruled the goal out for a handball by Gakpo in the build-up.

A typically belligerent Netherlands head coach Louis van Gaal took issue with criticism of his side's World Cup performances so far despite them topping Group A. A 2-0 win over hosts Qatar saw them finish with seven points, having previously beaten runners-up Senegal by the same scoreline and drawn 1-1 with Ecuador. But even though they had very few alarms in their opening three matches, Van Gaal was grilled in his post-match press conference about why the games were not particularly enjoyable to watch. "I'm not going to expand on it because I think you have a different opinion of football, " he said to one journalist. "Why don't you write you think it is terribly boring and you are going home tomorrow because you couldn't care less? "When it was put to him fans were "grinding their teeth" on social media about the displays Van Gaal responded: "That's disappointing but I don't agree with you.
