On Sunday 15 June 2014 world football fans would be able to watch the opening match of group E of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil at 12:00 PM (New York time). According to the official FIFA ranking Switzerland is on ranking of 8, and Ecuador is 23 ranks. Switzerland secured their place in Brazil at the 2014 World Cup by winning Group E of European qualification without losing a goal ahead of Iceland, Slovenia and Norway. Ecuador secured the fourth place in the South American section ahead of Uruguay after winning seven, drawing four and losing five of their games. Ecuador and Switzerland have been drawn in Group E for the 2014 World Cup alongside France, and Honduras. This group is one of the more balanced groups in which no team ranked lower than 30, according to the FIFA rankings. Switzerland is very talented but very young -means that they could be a surprise package in the 2014 World Cup. They are the only team to have beaten Brazil since February 2013 in which Dani Alves was their winning charm as he made an own goal for Switzerland to claim a famous victory. However, this could be the year for them to claim good position in world cup for themselves in front of the World. Similarly, Ecuador has had a good spell leading into the World Cup. But the defense of the team will be the prime concern for Coach Reinaldo Rueda. It is said by many football critics that Ecuador is in fine shape to reach the Round of 16. Unfortunately their star striker Christian Benitez unexpectedly died in July 2013 after leading the team’s qualifying charge.

Players to watch:
Xherdan Shaqiri is expected to be the offensive spark to push the Swiss forward. Just 22 years old, the hyper-talented Shaqiri is fast becoming a star for a Switzerland team. In this year’s Cup Switzerland’s hopes depend at a great extent on just how effective Shaqiri is offensively.
Captain Antonio Valencia will be a constant threat on the Swiss players. The awareness and speed in midfield of central midfielder Christian Noboa will be important for breaking down play. The powerful and direct play of Antonio Valencia will definitely help Ecuador this year in Brazil. With Manchester United striker Antonio Valencia trolling one side of the field, Jefferson Montero also may be key in determining his country’s success.
Head to head:
Both teams will be hopeful of qualifying from the Group for completion of this desire win against each other will be their first task. The Teams Switzerland and Ecuador up to today not played together. So there is much expectation from the lovers of each team to see how they play against each other.
There are no matches played between Switzerland and Ecuador.
This is a game that both sides may target as one that made as their first step to get qualified for round of 16. But as Switzerland have proven their quality it will not be difficult to say that a win against Ecuador shouldn’t be too hard. Match score may be like Switzerland 2-0 Ecuador.
The safe bet is at Switzerland with the others lagging behind. But you bet choice maybe on Ecuador. So bet on this match.
