Criticism of Enner Valencia to Gustavo Alfaro? “Senegal went out to look for the match and we didn’t,” says Ecuador’s striker in Qatar 2022

On the last day of Group A of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, the Ecuadorian team only needed to draw with Senegal to qualify for the next round of the highest soccer event, however this did not happen.

The team, led by the Argentine Gustavo Alfaro, was defeated 2-1 by the Africans, which cost them goodbye to the World Cup, a defeat that Enner Valencia, the national scorer, still regrets.

Before, the tricolors had beaten the host 2-0 and tied 1 with the Netherlands, this perhaps the best duel that the Ecuadorians played.

“For us it was complicated (being eliminated), we experienced something very nice. Winning the opening game made us know that we could do good things at the World Cup. Against the Netherlands we had a great second half. And against Senegal we chose the worst game to play badly and we were left out”, said the national team’s goalscorer.

“They (Africans) surprised us from the start. They came looking for the game and we didn’t. We waited for them and when we wanted to leave they had surprised us. When we wanted to react, it was already too late,” added Valencia in conversation with The Ecuadorian Soccer Player.

In addition, the footballer was consulted about his continuity in Turkish football. “I would like to (stay) because of the affection shown by the people, but it depends on what the club wants and personally, because I would love to win things with Fenerbahce. We are fighting on all fronts, ”he concluded. (D)
