Ecuador defeated Paraguay 2-0, on date 9 of the Qualifiers to Qatar 2022.
La Tri had several very good individual performances and lopsided income to secure the victory at the end of the match.
This is the one-by-one analysis of Ecuador:
Hernán Galíndez: Practically one more spectator in the game. He had a good save against Ángel Romero in the first half and surely rejected the stopped balls.
Xavier Arreaga: Little work in the time he was in the field, he came out in the second half to generate more attacks.
Felix Torres: The hero of the afternoon from Quito with the agonizing header for the goal. Safe in defense, without suffering with the attackers from Paraguay.
Luis Fernando Leon: Solid in defense, permanently winning the duels against Luis Amarilla.
Fernando Gaibor: Irregular level. Some touches of his football, but he did not finish leading the team.
Carlos Gruezo: One of the best of the team, very solid in the distribution and being the axis of the team in the middle of the field.
Pervis Estupiñán:Match with highs and lows. His greatest contribution was the precise center for Torres’ goal.
Byron Castillo: The best on the court. Very active in attack, dominating the right wing, teaming up with Ángel Mena.
Enner Valencia: Very active, moving around the attack front and fighting with the Paraguayan centrals. He had a very hot duel with Morel the entire game. It was declining with the passing of the minutes.
Joao Rojas: He had a very clear chance in the first half, but he couldn’t convert it.
Angel Mena: In the first half he got along very well with Castillo. He wasted a very clear chance and was replaced.
Gonzalo Plata: Great income from the bench, showing all his power and speed when he faced the Paraguayan defenders head on.
Jose Cifuentes: Income without major contributions. He was quite imprecise with the ball at his feet.
Washington Corozo: Regular income performance.
Michael Estrada: He sealed the triumph of the Tri with a huge definition in the end.
Junior Sornoza: Great contribution in his income, being a nexus in the axis of the attack and putting together the play that ended in the goal.
