Teams warm-up

4:21 PM2 years ago

Statements - Leonardo Gonzalez (Venezuela's coach)

"We all know the potential that Ecuador has. There is also the issue of altitude, it is no secret, it always affects us. We are looking for the tools and the tactical idea to be able to contain the offensive transitions, their speed up top and how to emphasize the set pieces".

"We have been trying to shape the system of play that we have. They have always seen that we can play 4-3-2-1, it is what we like the most and we believe today is what can be given to the national team without having an original '10', such as Juan Pablo Añor, we have tried with Yeferson Soteldo and Adalberto Peñaranda".

"It's difficult when you don't have the days in the qualifiers to prepare for the match at altitude. The players arrived on Monday and the altitude issue could not be worked on. We will try to generate order, patience and tranquility in a complicated match".

4:16 PM2 years ago

Statements - Gustavo Alfaro (Ecuador coach)

"We are the highest defending team in South America and together with Brazil we are the team that recovers the ball the fastest. Defensive solidity is the key to have World Cup aspirations".

"From the pitch draw we must show that we want to win the match. Our obligation is to finish this November in qualifying positions. We hope to have a full stadium. The support of the country is the most important thing for us".

"We cannot play a slow game, we must go out with the same determination as we did against Bolivia. The burden of the match will be on us, we must be prepared for the wear and tear and that is why I must define who will start and who will be looking for at the end"

"As I said from the first day I arrived, if we achieve the goal it is not of the boys or of us, it is of the country, of 17 million Ecuadorians. The boys don't want to qualify for Qatar for a personal goal. From the first day I spoke with them, they always told me that they are doing it for the country".
