The Ecuador’s national team suffered a severe blow after falling to Venezuela 2-1 in the Qualifying as a visitor. After the defeat, coach Gustavo Alfaro spoke at a press conference and analyzed the match.
Alfaro began by explaining the line of 3 defenders that he used and the development of the match: “The line of 3 was more than anything to control Venezuela’s counterattack speeds. So much so that it was difficult for them to progress in the field because we controlled the two forwards they had well.”
“At the time that we were going to make changes to find the match, Venezuela’s second goal is coming. We generated the chances, we failed and unfortunately these failures that we had in defense and attack deprived us of getting a good result.“he continued.
Finally, the DT stated that his National Team will have to start scoring visitor points to recover what was lost at home: “I think it is a result that can complicate us. These points that we do not get here we have to get them as a visitor because we lost local points against Peru and Chile “.
