We didn't play a good game.

We played well on possession of the opponent's ball but not when we had the ball at our feet.

It's our problem.

It was already in the first match (2-0 victory against Senegal).

All the duels, all the second balls have been for Ecuador.

We couldn't win (...) Ecuador could have won.

But they didn't have many chances, even though they shot the bar.

I am satisfied with the 1-1, but not with this match (...) The good point is to have taken a point against a much better opponent.

I thought Ecuador would play at a very high level.

I said he would be stronger than Senegal.

We just have to improve our possession game, we have to work on that.

We did it and we will continue.

Are we going to get there?

We have several options in the middle and we can try them.

As for Memphis, he could hardly do things, because he rarely had the ball, and when the ball came, it was in difficult conditions.

He could not show his qualities.

It doesn't have much to do with the qualities of Memphis, but everything to do with those of the team.
