Enner Valencia became just the fourth player ever to score six consecutive goals for a nation in the competition, along with Eusébio for Portugal in 1966, Paolo Rossi for Italy in 1982 and Oleg Salenko for Russia in 1994. However, the marksman was stretchered off before stoppage time at Khalifa International Stadium after appearing to aggravate the knee problem that almost forced him to miss Ecuador’s second group-stage game against the Netherlands, which they drew 1-1 thanks to his goal.

Ecuador enter Tuesday’s match knowing they will guarantee qualification with a result. A defeat means they can only qualify if the Netherlands also lose. The Europeans and Ecuador both winning sees first place decided on goal difference. If this is identical, first place is decided on fair play points.

Last time out Senegal became the first African side to beat the host nation at a World Cup; all of the previous four instances of an African side facing the hosts had seen them lose by an aggregate 12-2 score. Boulaye Dia, Famara Diedhiou and Ahmadou Dieng all got on the scoresheet in their 3-1 win over Qatar meaning the African champions will definitely qualify with a win against Ecuador. A draw will also be enough if the Netherlands lose. They can top the group with a win if the Netherlands draw/lose.
