At this time, the monumental Stadium is starting to get filled with fans of the Ecuadorian soccer team and even from neighbouring countries, attracted by a match described as historic, because it is between the current World Champion and our National team, who is marching towards the classification to the World Cup Brazil 2014, in third place in South America.
Ecuador and Spain feature today, one of the friendly matches of greater relevance in the history of the Ecuadorian soccer at international level.
Stars such as Andrés Iniesta, David Silva, Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, Jordi Alba, among others, that the Ecuadorian fans usually watch through television, in the Spanish League or other tournaments in Europe – will be seen today live by those who attend to the Stadium of Barcelona.
Ecuador has faced foreign selections for 75 years and this time will be the first in which it will play against a champion of the world from the old continent.
It will also be the first time that a current monarch of the Euro Cup (2008-2012) is presented in the country.
The doors of the Monumental Stadium for the game of Ecuador vs. Spain opened to the public at 11:00. The match will be at 15:00.
