The Ecuadorian team beat Colombia 6-1, which played its worst game in four decades and left Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz reeling this Tuesday 17-N in the match played in Quito that started the fourth day of the South American qualifiers for the World Cup in Qatar.

The Tricolor achieved its third win in a row and for now rose to second place in the standings with 9 points, while the coffee team received its second straight win and remained seventh with 4 points.

Ecuador easily broke down Colombia’s defense and scored the first two goals of the match between minutes six and nine.

The 1-0 was the work of Robert Arboleda, who slipped in the middle of three Colombian defenders and touched the ball with his left foot, and the 2-0 was scored by Ángel Mena, also with the left and after a bad serve from goalkeeper Camilo Vargas that took the entire defense badly.

La Tri continued to play at pleasure against a Colombian team that did not react, so the third goal was a matter of time and reached 31 minutes after a quick play on the left in which Michael Estrada received a pass from the left and he defined without any opposition.

At 39 minutes the partial 4-0 came, again in an action from the left side in which Xavier Arreaga 39 received a pass in front of the penalty spot and with his left foot he beat Vargas.

The result led Queiroz to introduce three changes at the same time: Frank Fabra entered for Johan Mojica, Luis Zuárez for Johan Mojica and Wilmar Barrios for Matheus Uribe.

Colombia discounted at 41 minutes in a play that seemed to be from another game. Duván Zapata received a precise pass for the first time, made a double dribble in the area and was brought down by an Ecuadorian defender. Penalty. The charge was James Rodríguez, who fired a creeping shot placed at the right post of the Ecuadorian goal.

The second half showed a slight reaction from Colombia, but their attempt to find more goals did not last long to avoid disaster and humiliation.

Ecuador, which gave up the ball and entrenched itself in their field, came back to life after 70 minutes and at 77 they got the fifth goal of the duel, achieved by Gonzalo Plata after a great maneuver by Mena, the figure of the court.

Colombia wandered and therefore received the sixth goal at minute 90, again by Arboleda, which he celebrated by dancing with his teammates, because both he and the tricolor team gave an unforgettable dance on the court of the Rodrigo Paz Delgado stadium in Quito.
