The former selector questioned the strategy of the Ecuadorian technical director in the match against Vinodino in Caracas.
“I don’t know why we continue with three centers when we have to win this game.” Former Ecuador captain Antonio Valencia has expressed his disagreement with triangular coach Gustavo Albaro. Qatar fails to qualify for 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The news of Copa America amassing 99 appearances with Valencia and the national team, who retired from football in May 2021 until 2019, was released at the Trivia, when La Tri was already on the scoresheet – the stadium of Venezuela Central University after advancing Sunday afternoon at the Olympics.
In the Venezuelan capital, Enrique Valencia converted a penalty chance for the Ecuadorians in the 37th minute, but Darwin Machess equalized 45 + 1 in the first half to prevent the locals from beating. Edward Bello, with the help of young goalkeeper Moise Ramரேrez (21), went 2-1 in the 64th minute with a long-distance free kick..
Unlike Albaro’s proposal for a recent Bolivia victory (3-0) in Guayaquil, the trio provided the centerpiece against Vinodino with centers: Robert Arboleda, Felix Torres and Piero Hinkopic. The tactic was maintained until the 83rd minute when the Brazilian Sao Paulo defender left the field and Alan Franco, the midfielder, entered..
Ecuador, which did not show a clear offensive idea, did not improve with the changes of the Argentine coach. With the exception of Franco, Michael Estrada left the bench (min 65), who opened the scoring against Green on Thursday; Joao Joshimer Rojas (65), Brian Anglo (83) and Ayrton Presiado (89). Everyone, after the beat it marks Bellow’s goal.
Albero’s players said that the defeat in the Venezuelan field was aimed at adding “six points” in three games this month of the World Cup. The tricolor will go to Colombia next Thursday in Barranquilla.
We don’t know why we should win this game and why we are pursuing 3 centers. Cow
