DOHA: For most football fans, today’s opening action of the 2022 World Cup is less of a spotlight as it only involves the 50th ranked team in the world, Qatar meets the No. 44, Ecuador.
However, that impression may change when seeing what Ecuador will offer in Qatar.
Given a title La Tricolor, Ecuador is not only ready to disappoint millions of Qataris in their first match, but also ‘rocks’ the 2022 World Cup, said their manager, Gustavo Alfaro.
“The previous generation that tried to qualify for the knockout stage in Russia 2018 failed, but it has been four years since that failure happened.
“A lot has happened since that period.
“Many new players, fresher, stronger and more enthusiastic,” Alfaro said as quoted from the site World Soccer.
Moises Caicedo and Enner Valencia are among the main players who will lead Ecuador to find a ticket to the knockout stage as the two best teams in Group A.
Although not given high hopes in the World Cup this time, Ecuador’s success over Peru, Colombia, Chile and Paraguay to occupy the fourth place in the South American qualification zone proves that they are not an easy opponent.
Brighton center star, Caicedo, who is only 20 years old, is a backup to take his country further, in addition to Bayer Leverkusen player, Piero Hincapie. – AGENCIES
