Who are the players to watch in Ecuador vs. Netherlands?
Valencia scored both goals for Ecuador in the opener, and there’s little reason to believe he’ll be stopped in the future. The 33-year-old has 37 goals in 75 appearances for the national team, including five in World Cup play. It’ll be interesting to see how his knee holds up after leaving the Qatar fixture in the 77th minute with a knock.
Virgil van Dijk stars for the Netherlands, serving as team captain. The Liverpool center back, along with the FC Barcelona duo of Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, gives the Dutch a potent attack.
