The game bears same importance to both squads, although France has been in super form. They are the favorites, but need a point to get the place in the Last 16. A win here, and they are safe. As for Ecuador, they need to get the points here to hold to their chances.
France has to take the form in their side as they need to keep the same going for the knock out stages. Arrogance is something that team will not want here. With a young team, France certainly has better possibilities as the fourth favorite of FIFA 2014.
Ecuador knows it’s chances are tough but with unpredicted results in the World Cup so far, anything is possible. They would want a win here that would retain the momentum to make it to the Last 16. The two goal lead over Switzerland remains their plus point for this tough nut!
