The good, the bad and the ugly of Ecuador’s loss to Senegal
The support of the 7,000 Ecuadorians who came to the Khalifa International stadium to encourage the team. In all three games, the fans made themselves felt and did not stop singing for a single minute.
There were very low individual performances compared to the matches against Qatar and the Netherlands. In addition, the inclusion of Alan Franco and Carlos Gruezo in the midfield did not favor Gustavo Alfaro’s scheme.
The team reacted late to the tactical superiority of the Africans. The changes helped in the second half and Ecuador took the lead on the field. But there was no effectiveness in the last section of the field.
