Watching the highlights, it looked as if it was a tough day at the office for the Spaniards who faced a sticky & uncomfortable Ecuador that were, to say the least, frustrating for them. The Spanish team had to resort to SERGIO CANALES who has recovered from injury & came on in the second half to "open the can" & score in the 66 min. From here Ecuador was forced to open up to & attempt to find the equalizer & the spaces created allowed another substitute VAZQUEZ to score the second goal. Lastly, the red card to Ecuador which left them with 10 men did not help their cause, but that´s Football.
Overall, good victory & great result as Spain remains on course.
