Chile vs Ecuador Preview
These squads were on different sides of 4-0 matches in their respective tournament openers.
Chile pounded Japan behind forward Eduardo Vargas’ second-half brace. Defender Erick Pulgar opened the scoring in the 41st minute and Alexis Sanchez tallied in the 82nd, just a minute before Vargas’ second goal.
Sanchez’s diving header was his first goal in any competition in more than five months as the Manchester United forward has dealt with a knee injury.
“He’s on the right track,” Chile head coach Reinaldo Rueda said, according to Goal.com. “We wanted to reserve him for the next games, but he’s recovered well.”
The 30-year-old is Chile’s all-time leader in caps (125) and goals (42).
“For six weeks I felt worse than I ever have before,” Sanchez said, per Goal.com. “I struggled in the first half as I felt stifled but in the second half I was more relaxed and played with more freedom and excitement.”
Sanchez scored just once in 20 Premier League appearances in 2018-19.
“Alexis needed the goal. He had a difficult year and this gives him confidence,” Chile and Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal said, per Goal.com.
“We must focus from now on that game. We know that if we keep improving we can be a very dangerous team.”
La Roja are the two-time defending Copa America champions, having won in 2015 and 2016.
“Chile have very experienced players, they know each other very well, with a base of many years,” Rueda said, per Goal.com.
“The current champions usually make a bad debut, but we worked hard not to suffer with that.”
Ecuador fell to Uruguay by the same score on Sunday, ceding goals to Nicolás Lodeiro, Edinson Cavani, and Luis Suárez in the first half.
“They were better than us in every aspect,” Ecuador head coach Hernan Dario Gomez said, according to The Associated Press. “Uruguay is a great team, very experienced.”
Los Amarillos defensive midfielder Jose Quintero took a red card with the score 1-0 in the 24th minute, elbowing Lodeiro in the face as the two vied for an airborne ball.
Ecuador managed just two shots the entire game, with only one testing Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. La Celeste, on the other hand, launched 16 attempts; seven of them peppered Alexander Dominguez’s net.
“After the red card the game opened up and we dominated,” Lodeiro said, per AP. “It was an important opening victory. We have to keep going game by game, always trying to improve.”
