I think the occasion got to us a bit at the start and that set the tone for the rest of the game. We lacked confidence, we conceded goals very early on and we really struggled to get into the game against a team that played really well. They were better than us in every area. " Valencia wins Budweiser man-of-the-matchWell, this is ironic after recent events. I don't know if Enner is going to get any real Budweiser as a reward but if he does, I hope he's going to drink it in the hospitality suites and not in the vicinity of the stadium. Alfraro: This is just the beginning for usEcuador boss Alfaro also stated the importance of getting the World Cup campaign off to a good start:“It was the most important game of the World Cup for us.
Ecuador seem to be happy with a 2-0. Qatar have absolutely zero threat. First switch for QatarAttacker Mohammed Muntari replaces Hasan Al-Haydos. Empty seats at opening gameWhat's this? Empty seats at the opening game of the World Cup? It's almost as if FIFA didn't think it through properly... First substitution of the World CupJeremy Sarmiento of Brighton comes on for Ibarra. A straight switch. No beer, no problem? "We want beer, we want beer, " chant the Ecuador fans. The non-alcoholic stuff near the ground not doing it for you, lads and lasses? Preciados is back on, by the way. It looks as if he'll be OK to keep going.
A late corner for Ecuador. Could they add a third? Empty seats update. There are LOTS of them. Five additional minutes to be played. Can Qatar find a way back into this? I suspect not... That's the first time I can remember Ecuador goalkeeper Hernán Galíndez touching the ball with his hands... Surely he did earlier? Close for Qatar! Sub Muntari latches onto a straight ball over the top and his powerful strike nestles on top of the net. That would've set up a grandstand finish, out of nowhere! Estrada should've had the chance to grab a third goal there.
VAR rules out Valencia's early goal for EcuadorHere we go. Miles offside. Qatar right wing-back Pedro Miguel launches the ball upfield and it runs through to Ecuador keeper Galíndez with no Qatar player in sight. That sums up the hosts at the moment. Continuing with that theme... Estupiñán races to the goal line and crosses for Ibarra, who gets absolutely clattered by Al-Sheeb as he heads over the bar. The ref isn't interested in anything other than a goal kick, though. There was a yellow card for Al-Sheeb in there too for bringing Valencia down.
Five minutes to be added on at the end of the first half. No stopping Enner ValenciaScratch that, Enner Valencia is back on! There's no stopping this man. Worst performance by a host nation at the World Cup? Qatar are really struggling out there at the moment, with Ecuador well in control. The hosts are ranked 50th in the world, with Ecuador at 44th, but the gulf in quality between the teams looks a lot more than six ranking places. Possibly Qatar just need time to warm up, but from this point it looks likely they’ll be losing this match.
- Qatar offered next to no attacking threat, with Ecuador goalkeeper Hernán Galíndez a virtual spectator throughout the 90 minutes. - Valencia forced off with an injury in second half, five days before their second match of the World Cup against the Netherlands. Maybe they should've done! Rodríguez got his head on it but was off balance and skewed it wide.
