On Sunday, the Ecuador national team will know which team they will play against in the round of 16 of the U-20 World Cup in Argentina. The mini-Three’s opponent will be second in Group F, and could be Gambia, South Korea or Honduras.

Nothing is clear about the mini-Trio’s next opponent. Gambia (6 points) vs. South Korea (4) and Honduras (1) vs. France (0) is a doubleheader on Sunday (unique time slot, 16:00 in Ecuador).

Historically! Ecuador’s chilling 9-0 win over Fiji at the U-20 World Cup in Argentina

The victory of the Africans over the Asians does not clear up the odds, as a victory of the Central Americans against the French would make the Catracho team a rival to the Ecuadorians.

But if the South Korean team wins, The Gambia would remain in second place.

The national team entered the next stage of the tournament after defeating Fiji 9-0 as the second in group B in a match played in Santiago del Estero (North) this Friday.

La Tricolor opened the scoring through Ray Páez (6), and in the end of the first half, José Klinger (34) and Justin Cuero (36 and 45+5) scored goals.

The big differences between the South Americans and the Oceanians continued in the second half, in which Alan Minda (66 and 85), Tommy Chamba (88) and Cristhoper Zambrano (90+6, penalty, 90+10) dragged on until they achieved a historic defeat.

As runners-up in Group B, Ecuador will play Group F runners-up in the Round of 16 next Thursday in Santiago del Estero. (D)
