Key player Paraguay

Richard Sanchez has had a regularity with America that has allowed him to be called in recent months by the Albirroja. Although he is not a striker, his good technique and great mid-range shot make him a dangerous player at any time.

3:43 PM2 years ago

Key player Ecuador

The goal man of the team is still Enner Valencia, who has great experience and multiple tours, such as the Mexican one, so he will have to have a good aim to get a good result.

3:38 PM2 years ago

Last lineup Paraguay

1 Silva, 24 Martínez, 6 Alonso, 15 Gómez, 13 Espínola, 19 Arzamendia, 16 Cardozo, 23 Villasanti, 11 Romero, 8 Sánchez, 7 Carlos González.

Paraguay: back to winning ways

Paraguay's national team has only been able to win one of six matches (against Venezuela), so despite being sixth with six points, they need to win to continue competing for the direct places, even though these are the first dates of the qualifying round.

Eduardo Berizzo called up Premier League players Miguel Almirón and Tony Sanabria, in addition to goalkeeper Antony Silva, Richard Sánchez, Braian Samudio and Carlos González, who play in Mexican soccer.

3:23 PM2 years ago

Ecuador: to stay in the top places

After a spectacular start in the qualifiers, Ecuador is in third place with nine points and needs to be strong at home to stay ahead of Argentina and Brazil.

The non-calls of captain Alexander Domínguez, Christian Noboa, Robert Arboleda and Damián Díaz were surprising, although Ángel Mena, Michael Estrada and Washington Corozo will come from Liga MX.
