After a disappointing opening 2-0 defeat to Colombia, the USA hasn’t looked back. They followed that game with a huge morale-boosting 4-0 victory of Costa Rica. Then, they edged Paraguay 1-0 in a game that decided who was going to qualify for the quarterfinal stages.
Ecuador is yet to taste defeat in this year’s Copa America. They started off their campaign with a 0-0 tie against Brazil, then battled to a 2-2 with Peru. However, they saved their best performance till last by destroying Haiti 4-0 to secure their place in the final eight.
But the USA should enough players to cause Ecuador more problems than they can cause us. Led by Michael Bradley, we will have enough bite in the midfield to compete with Ecuador’s tough tacklers. And with Clint Dempsey upfront, the USA can always feel confident that they can get a goal or two. In fact, Clint has already been one of the stars of the tournament, and has two goals and two assists in his three games so far. Only Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho have done better.
We’ve got our fingers crossed for a US win and will be cheering on our boys the moment the game kicks off! We urge you to get your scarves and jerseys ready and cheer with us!
