The fourteenth date of the playoffs for the World Cup Brazil 2014 is going to be disputed today and the authors are: Ecuador, who has not been beaten as local in all the playoffs and who arrives with 20 points, and Argentina, who leads the playoffs with 25 points.
The match, held at the Olimpico Atahualpa Stadium, in Quito, promises to be full of big plays and maneuvers, even though both teams have players suspended.
Ecuador comes to the field lacking one of its best forwards, Christian “Chucho” Benitez, who lost the match for yellow card accumulation, while Argentina will be without its best player, Lionel “La Pulga” Messi, who is not fully recovered from his injury.
The hopes of the tricolor fall in hands of Felipe Caicedo and Antonio Valencia, whose combination has managed to draw the attention of all Ecuadorians, who have been filling themselves with patriotism during the entire morning hoping for the best.
