After their (2-0) opening game victory, Ecuador displayed their best performance in Qatar against the Netherlands as they fought hard to secure a point. The Netherlands struck six minutes into the game and thought they had it in control. However, Ecuador came asking questions after the lead and were rewarded in the 49th minute. Valencia has been the best player so far in this tournament, having scored three times in two games.
Valencia's third goal of the tournament makes him the leading scorer so far in Qatar, and that's his sixth of Ecuador's consecutive goals at World Cups, putting him amongst the esteemed company of Eusebio, Rossi, and Salenko. The Fenerbahce man was on a stretcher during their game against the Netherlands. However, he should be fit for this encounter.
Ecuador Starting 11 (4-4-2): Galindez; An. Preciado, Torres, Hincapie, Estupinan; Plata, Mendez, Caicedo, Ibarra; Valencia, Estrada.

Senegal headed into their second game with great enthusiasm and determination, and it paid off following their (3-1) victory over host nation Qatar. They won against Qatar, although the hosts were poor from the onset.
