After Ecuador’s heroic draw against Brazil on the opening day of the South American U-17 tournament, the Tricolor will look for their first win against Colombia in Group A this Saturday.
The match will be played from 19:00 at the Christian Benítez Stadium, located in Samanes Park.
The young team struggled last Thursday but managed to recover from a 0-2 loss against Canarinha to draw 2-2 in the final minutes.
Diego Martínez, the coach of the Ecuadorian national team, was optimistic after the painful point won by his players.
There is a lot to improve, to grow, to adapt, but we are convinced that we believe in the work we are doing, said the Ecuadorian strategist.
In their debut, the coffee growers drew 0-0 against Uruguay in the opening game of the South American Championship.
