The Ecuadorian National Team continues to prepare its fourth-final match of the Copa América against Lionel Messi’s Argentina. With some players in doubt, Alfaro did a new training session in Goiania and is already outlining an 11 that would be very similar to the one that tied Brazil at the close of the group stage.
Enner Valencia, the offensive reference, and Jhegson Méndez, pillar in the midfield, ended up touched in the duel against Scrath. Despite his muscular overloads they are doing well and are expected to be headlines.
In principle, the incorporation of Carlos Gruezo, replacing Kitu Díaz who is in quarantine, would serve to give you replacement options to Alfaro’s team.
The great unknown is Moisés Caicedo. The young Brigthon footballer was a replacement against Brazil, in which looked like a serious knee injury, but then he was seen walking normally what kept the worst ghosts away. Anyway, keep hitting and It will be necessary to see if Alfaro chooses to risk it from the start in this decisive match or if he reserves it in the bank before a need.
A possible variant is that Ángel Mena, who scored the equalizer against Brazil, replaces Caicedo and for Alan Franco to take his place in the center of the midfield.
Thus, the probable La Tri team, to face Argentina this Saturday from 20:00 it would be: Hernán Galíndez; Angelo Preciado, Robert Arboleda, Piero Hincapié, Diego Palacios; Ángel Mena (or Moisés Caicedo) Jhegson Méndez, Alan Franco, Pervis Estupiñán; Ayrton Preciado; Enner Valencia.
