|Ecuador players and coaching staff talked to the press for the last time; after posing for the official picture, they closed the doors of 'Eloy Alfaro' military school to start getting ready for the Qualifiers match against Chile.
The whole team is convinced they will take the win, though they said they respect their rival a lot.
Santos striker Christian Benitez believes Chile will "profit from any excuse to interrupt the game anytime they need it in order to attack."
Getafe's Joffre Guerron said the game against Chile "is quite crucial. It is so because we are the hosts, so we are compelled to get a positive result."
He also added that "the team is working with a humble attitude, making great sacrifices in every game to get good results and thinking about qualification; in order to reach that, we have to score goals as soon as possible."
For him, "Chile's main virtue is their young players and their attitude; but we also count on players who want to show their skills, they need to do it in order to keep growing."
Guerron also said that "Chilean defenders are strong, but now we don't have to focus on our rival but to think of what we can do. We have to think it will be a nice match."
