How Ecuador could line up against Senegal

Ecuador could have to contend without star striker Enner Valencia, who is a serious doubt for their final group game against Senegal due to being stretchered off in the 1-1 draw with the Netherlands on matchday two of the World Cup.

In his place, it is likely that either one of Jeremy Sarmiento or Kevin Rodriguez could be called upon by Gustavo Alfaro to partner Gonzalo Plata in the supporting role behind Michael Estrada, who will occupy the role of lone striker.

Goalkeeper Hernan Galindez will be selected between the sticks, owing to his two competent showings in the competition so far for his nation.

In front of him, there is no reason to believe that Jackson Porozo, Felix Torres and Piero Hincapie will not form a back three against Senegal, which could help to counteract the Senegalese threat in attack, including the likes of Ismaila Sarr, Boulaye Dia and Famara Diedhiou.

Moises Caicedo is a safe bet to patrol the midfield area, having started the previous two matches for his nation in central midfield alongside Jhegson Mendez which has been beneficial to the Ecuadorian cause in terms of gaining results.

Between Jeremy Sarmiento and Kevin Rodriguez, the former may just get the nod in the supporting roles in attack behind Michael Estrada.

Romario Ibarra and Diego Palacios are amongst multiple Ecuador substitutes that could be brought on during this crunch tie to change the dynamic of proceedings.

Ecuador possible starting lineup:
Galindez; Porozo, Torres, Hincapie; Preciado, Mendez, Caicedo, Estupinan; Plata, Sarmiento; Estrada
