The grief of Moisés Caicedo after elimination from Ecuador: the player did not want to get up from the grass

The players of the Ecuadorian team burst into tears when they heard the final whistle of the match (1-2) against Senegal at the Khalifa International Stadium. The defeat eliminated the South American team in the group stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, despite their good performance in the first two dates and one of those who suffered the most was Moisés Caicedo.

After the commitment, the footballer, who had scored the partial tie and awakened the illusion of his country, collapsed and was lying on the grass. Like his teammates, the 21-year-old held his head in frustration.

Instantly, the other footballers like José Cifuentes or William Pacho came to comfort him and tried to lift him off the pitch. However, the Brighton & Hove Albion attacker wanted to continue lying down and also continued to lament.

So, the coach Gustavo Alfaro came to the place where his pupil was and encouraged him. Moisés Caicedo stopped in tears and hugged his technical director who continued to offer words of encouragement.

Gustavo Alfaro: “The group will have a rematch”

After the elimination of Ecuador, DT Gustavo Alfaro was optimistic for the future. “This leaves us with little flavor, we wanted to continue on this path, we all have pain. We must not lose sight of the litter of these boys and that this experience will serve them for the future. I have no doubt that these guys will have their revenge later on.”were the first words of the DT in a press conference.

In this sense, the Argentine strategist was asked if he will be willing to continue commanding the Ecuadorian team, after the great results obtained in his term. Despite the positive overall balance, the coach did not confirm his continuity on the ‘Tri’ bench.

“I have strong feelings about the elimination. This is a moment of pain, I think that talking about it would not be appropriate. Some time ago I met with the Federation to talk, but it is not appropriate right now. Personally, I need time to know what I’m going to do with my professional career. Today I have to stop the ball and see if I want to continue directing or not”he stated.
