Argentina 0-2 Ecuador

Ecuador sprang the surprise of the opening day, snatching their first qualifying triumph on Argentinian soil in seven attempts, courtesy of late strikes by Frickson Erazo and Felipe Caicedo. The 2-0 defeat was La Albiceleste’s first reverse in 40 world-finals preliminary matches in Buenos Aires, a run stretching back to the famous 5-0 defeat to Colombia in 1993. “I’m having a job finding anything positive to take away from the game,” lamented Argentina coach Gerardo Martino. “Ecuador were superior to us in every department.” (08 OCT 2015)
