Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup

Federación Ecuatoriana de Fútbol
Group A

Poland vs Ecuador in Gelsenkirchen:
Ecuador sealed victory ten minutes from time as a fluid move split the Poland defence; with substitute Ivan Kaviedes beating the offside line to slip a neat pass across to Augustin Delgado.

Ecuador vs Costa Rica in Hamburg:
Ecuador's second win, without conceding a goal, puts them top of group A; ahead of the deciding match against the hosts, Germany.

Ecuador vs Germany in Berlin:
Ecuador had already qualified for the Second Round before this game, which is just as well because Germany totally controlled the game; much to Luis Suarez' displeasure.

Knockout Stage

Second Round
England vs Ecuador in Stuttgart:
David Beckham took a while to get the ball sitting right, shook his head and released a high, curling ball over the wall that dipped low and clipped the inside of the post; to send Ecuador out of the World Cup.
