The Ecuadorian team trained fully this Monday in its last practice before facing its counterpart from Uruguay on Tuesday, September 12, on the second day of the South American qualifying qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.
The Ecuadorian team led by Spanish coach Félix Sánchez trained at their training center in Quito in a session where only the first fifteen minutes were open to the press.
After warming up by stretching and playing ball, ‘La Tri’ continued to rehearse behind closed doors the strategy they will follow against Uruguay in their first home match of these qualifying rounds.
In this session, Sánchez outlined the starting eleven that will face the team led by Argentine Marcelo Bielsa and no major changes are expected in relation to the initial lineup from last Thursday’s game in Buenos Aires, where Ecuador lost 1-0 with a goal of Lionel Messi. free kick.
Among the possible changes are the entry of Liga de Quito striker Jhojan Julio instead of Gonzalo Plata and the entry of right-back Ángelo Preciado to José Hurtado’s injury.
