The big concern for Ecuador is the fitness of Enner Valencia who was stretchered off in the 1-1 match against the Netherlands. In his absence, Jeremy Sarmiento could well get the nod to make it to the starting XI.

Unlike Ecuador, Senegal do not have any major injury concerns. They would be vying for the three points on offer that will see them more or less make it to the next round. Kalidou Koulibaly will continue to be the crucial man in defense and will try to hold the game.
