Group Match

Group E

Travel to Ecuador Ecuador vs Travel to France France in Rio de Janeiro.

Match Preview

In the final Group E matches, Ecuador take on France in Rio de Janeiro while Honduras play Switzerland in Manaus.

France beat Ecuador (2:0) in a Grenoble friendly match (27/05/2008).

The Match

France only needed a draw to qualify for the knockout rounds; while a draw would only be good enough for Ecuador, if Honduras beat Switzerland.

Unfortunately for South America, the ball didn't fall kindly for Ecuador fans; Antonio Valencia's sending off for a two-footed challenge, in the 50th minute, didn't help matters.

France's Mamadou Sakho may have been lucky not have seen red as well; there wasn't even a yellow card for his elbow nudge on Oswaldo Minda.

But that's all history now. Even if FIFA take retrospective action, the result can't be changed.
