The Netherlands got the win against Senegal and must work to be the group leader, while Ecuador made history by beating Qatar, the host country of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) tournament.
The tricolor team seeks to continue the feat by beating the Netherlands and seal their qualification to the round of 16.
This match will be played after the one scheduled between Qatar and Senegal, so going out onto the field with that result already known could motivate both teams in a game that will be one of the most exciting of the group stage.
– Netherlands: Louis Van Gaal’s team will include Noppert, Van Dijk, De Ligt and Aké; Blind, De Jong, Berghuis and Dumfries; Gakpo Janssen and Bergwijn.
– Ecuador: the team led by Gustavo Alfaro would have Galíndez; Hincapié, Torres, Preciado and Estupiñán, Moisés Caicedo, Alan Franco, Jhegson Méndez; Gonzalo Plata, Romario Ibarra and Michael Estrada.
