Qatar vs Ecuador Match Preview and Team News
It is more than just history making a case for Qatar being able to avoid defeat on their World Cup debut. Their stock has risen over the past decade, and they have recently been hovering inside the top 50 in the FIFA world rankings, having been well outside the leading 100 when the 2022 announcement was made. Their triumphant 2019 Asian Cup campaign was an amazing run of seven straight wins and no goals conceded until the 3-1 victory over Japan in the final. Later the same year, they faced South American opposition as guests in the Copa America, drawing with Paraguay and going down to Colombia and Argentina. Ali Almoez finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Akram Afif is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
Brazil 2014 was the last World Cup Ecuador qualified for, and they were the only South American side to bow out at the group stage after losing to Switzerland, beating Honduras, and drawing with France. They finished well off the pace when trying to reach Russia four years ago, stumbling to eighth place in the 10-team group before claiming the fourth and final automatic spot this time around. La Tri failed to register a win across their last four qualification games, although they did draw with Argentina and only Brazil scored more than Ecuador’s 27 goals in 18 matches. However, Gustavo Alfaro’s side managed only seven wins and lost six times while letting in 19 goals at the other end. Gonzalo Plata enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes toward the goal, the opponent has problems because he passes through the defense like a fast train. Moises Caicedo found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
