World Cup 2022: Ecuador 1-2 Senegal – Attacking space – Analysis

Aliou Cisse’s game plan worked perfectly. Direct play and attacking the back of Ecuador’s defence. Many goal scoring chances and a poor defensive performance from Ecuador who speculated with the result.

Ecuador’s long possessions ended in losses and the defence was badly positioned, especially the full-backs, in the defensive transitions.

In addition, the centre-backs did not play well and Ecuador lost many duels on long balls. Senegal were brave throughout the match and were rewarded with a place in the last 16.
