However, everything had started well for the Dutch with the very fine strike from Codie Gakpo in the 6th minute of play. However, the Oranje got stuck in the mud and created very few chances during the game.
Their goal is the only shot on target of the match.
For their part, the Ecuadorians kept pushing to come back to the score.
After a goal canceled for offside just before the break (45 + 3), the South Americans finally came back to score just after the inevitable Enner Valencia returned from the locker room (49th).
The players of "La Tri" will push (15 shots) but never take the lead.
