Switzerland v Ecuador predicted lineups
World Cup 2014: Switzerland v Ecuador Preview and Projected Lineups
Switzerland are a sleeper of a side this summer as they are much better than people may realize as they do not have a large amount of known players.
However, Ecuador is just the same and their recent strong form against England in their Miami friendly a week ago proves they have what it takes as well.
The Swiss were strong in their qualifying group taking 24 of 30 points and their pace and youth make them exciting to watch.
Ecuador has a strong offense going forward, but having only allowed six goals past them in all of World Cup qualifying the Swiss are very hard to break down and that is expected to prove the difference on the night.
Xherdan Shaqiri and Gokhan Inler are most likely to be the biggest sparks for Switzerland while Manchester United's Antonio Valencia is the most well known part of Ecuador's attack and likely to be the key to his nation unlocking the Swiss defense.
Switzerland Starting XI: Benaglio: Lichtsteiner, Djourou, Schar, Rodriguez; Inler, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Mehmedi, Stocker; Drmic.
Ecuador Starting XI: Dominguez: Paredes, Erazo, Guagua, Ayovi; Valencia, Castillo, Noboa, Montero; Valencia, Caicedo.
