The World Cup battle is going on and now it is time for Ecuador to face Senegal. It is not an easy game; Ecuador is playing in their fourth World Cup and they are on the brink of sealing their place in the final 16 for the second time in history if they can take down Senegal on Tuesday at Khalifa International Stadium.
A draw will also get them there. A loss, on the other hand, will almost surely spell a premature departure from Qatar for the young and hungry South American team, unless Qatar stages an unlikely lopsided win against the Netherlands.
