Ecuador presents official roster for Copa America: Gonzalo Plata and Robert Arbolida ruled out | Football | game

The Ecuadorian football team has announced the official roster for the 2024 Copa America tournament in the United States.

Tricolor coach Félix Sánchez Paz has opted to drop Gonzalo Plata and Robert Arboleda from the payroll, two men involved in a nightclub encounter on a FIFA date last March.

Carlos Alfaro Moreno on Copa America: Ecuador is South America's third power and should at least make the semi-finals.

Unlike Kendry Páez, who was taken into account, players from Sao Paulo FC and Al Sadd from Qatar were punished by the coach, which was already decided last week.

“Decisions have to be made and as technical director I have to make them. What happened, I informed myself, obviously I analyzed and made a decision. “I spoke with the president and fortunately I think we are connected to it,” Sanchez Paz told a press conference the previous Tuesday.

Filling these voids are 22-year-old defender Lion Lure from Catholic University and winger Janner Coroso, who plays for Barcelona SC, and the main surprises of the record.

Neither of the two footballers has been considered by the Spanish coach so far in his rotation at the helm of La Tri, neither for exhibition clashes nor official matches.

Another absentee is Javier Burray. The goalkeeper was called up for friendlies against Honduras and Italy, where he made his debut, but due to his slump in performance, Moises Ramírez was considered for Independiente del Valle.

There are no big surprises in the rest of the list and the coach will have the challenge of leading everyone's team to the final stage of the CONMEBOL tournament, which has left the national team out for years now.
