A result that could bring him closer to qualifying for the round of 16. Ecuador drew 1-1 against the Netherlands and Gustavo Alfaro considered that his team committed “sins of youth” that prevented victory in the second game they played in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

“We did not win because of the eventualities of football. If there’s one thing I told you tonight, it was that the result didn’t matter to me. We were facing the Netherlands, a team with claims to be world champions, who had gone 17 unbeaten games, with an average of 2.6 goals per game”he said at a press conference.

Likewise, Alfaro considered that the Ecuadorian team had “sins of youth We lacked the amount of battles of this type that the team does not have. The only one with experience is Enner Valencia”.

The ‘Tricolor’ coach maintained that “It is not bad to recognize that we are not superior to the rival, the Netherlands is above the hierarchy, because of the coach they have, but the bad thing is to feel inferior. We had 90 minutes to show that without the names of the Netherlands we could live up to them”, he said.

“The lack of inexperience hit us, respect for the Netherlands. That made us lose the game. With the minutes we realized that we are up to the task. They convinced themselves that with that attitude and a couple of corrections we could win. We needed to finish those plays, it was a game with few chances and those had to be marked”limited the coach of the country that belongs to Conmebol.

Ecuador adds four points and before the tie, Alfaro felt that Ecuador “is up to the challenges” and what can “give a fight to a European. Nothing is going to change my conception of the future of these boys, led by a captain who shows his hierarchy when it is necessary to do so”.

Now the decisive duel will be against Senegal and Alfaro indicated that they will leave motivated to achieve a point that will place them in the round of 16 for the second time in their history: “The battle against Senegal is going to be more intense and difficult than today.”
