In the first half of a game dominated by Ecuador, Enner Valencia scored the first goal and set up the second with a pass to Jaime Ayovi. In the second half Christian Noboa scored on a pass from Jefferson Montero while Antonio Valencia scored the final goal on a pass from Enner Valencia.

Ecuador, which needed a two-goal advantage to advance to the next round of play, finished second in their group.

Thursday’s game with the U.S. will be a rematch of last month’s friendly in Dallas that the U.S. won 1-0 on a last minute goal.
