At 8 pm, in the MetLife Stadium of New Jersey, the Ecuadorian national soccer team will begin its preparation for the participation in the World Cup Brazil 2014.
With the enthusiasm of thousands of Ecuadorian migrants who bought their tickets in advance and displayed them by social networks as a trophy, Ecuador trained in the middle of an intense cold and left the players ready for their match against Argentina.
The coach of Ecuador, the Colombian Reinaldo Rueda, may summon figures as Antonio Valencia, the English midfielder of the Manchester United, Jefferson Montero, midfielder of the Morelia Mexican team, and Felipe Caicedo, striker of the Lokomotiv Russian team, and probably, at least for a few minutes Jayro Campos, who returns from a long injury, and Fernando Gaibor, star player of Club Sport Emelec of Guayaquil.
Ecuador wants to be a main protagonist in the World Cup, said their coach, who next Tuesday will lead the Tricolor in Houston against Honduras in the second friendly match.
The lineup of Ecuador: Alexander Domínguez, Juan Carlos Paredes, Jorge Guagua, Frickson Erazo and Walter Ayovi, Cristian Noboa, Segundo Castillo, Antonio Valencia, Fernando Gaibor, Jefferson Montero and Felipe Caicedo. For Argentina: Sergio Romero; Facundo Roncaglia, Ezequiel Garay, Federico Fernandez and Lucas Orban, Ever Banega, Javier Mascherano and Angel Di Maria, Erik Lamela, Gonzalo Higuain and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
