FIFA World Cup

Ecuadorians Aim Cheeky Jibe at their Neighbours who Pushed for their Elimination from World Cup

•Ener Valencia has been instrumental in Ecuador's 2022 campaign so far. He's netted three goals so far and he has solely netted the country's last eight goals at the world cup.

Chile appealed to FIFA take Ecuador’s place at the World Cup for fielding an ineligible player during qualifying.

However, their efforts turned futile and the Ecuadorians retained their hard earned spot at the World Cup 2022 held in Qatar.

The South Americans have posted some positive results despite being underdogs. They have maintained their unbeaten status after picking a point to go level on points with Netherlands.

They also break a curse which no other team in the competitions history had ever managed by edging hosts Qatar in the opening match. No other host in the competition history had ever lost the opening match.

Yesterday the Ecuadorian fans remembered their noisy neighbours efforts to have them eliminated from the competition. They had a message for them displayed in a banner in Spanish. It translates to: "When do Chile play?"
