FIFA World Cup

Senegals vs Ecuador game which is to determine the fate of the two teams

Ecuador vs Senegal 6 PM. This game will determine if Ecuador or senegal will qualify in round of sixteen in group A.

Ecuador are hopeful captain Enner Valencia, who has scored all three of their goals at this World Cup, will play at least some part in the game despite being forced off against the Netherlands with a knee injury.

Senegal have no new injury concerns.

This is Ecuador's first World Cup match against an African nation. Opponents Senegal are winless in both of their previous World Cup games against South American sides, with both of these coming in the final group game of a tournament (3-3 against Uruguay in 2002, 0-1 against Colombia in 2018).

If they avoid defeat, Ecuador will qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup for the second time in their history, also doing so in 2006. It would also be the first time they've gone through an entire group stage unbeaten.

Enner Valencia has scored six World Cup goals for Ecuador, twice as many as any other player (Agustin Delgado has three). He's scored those six goals from just nine shots on target.

Valencia has also scored each of Ecuador's past six goals at the World Cup, the first player to do so for a single nation since Oleg Salenko for Russia in 1994. He could become the first player in World Cup history to score seven goals in a row for a nation.
