ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Ecuador vs. Francia 2014 (en vivo live score results below) delivers a critical Group E futbol partido today to the World Cup Group E division. Both teams need a big performance today to advance. La Copa Mundial de FIFA resultados so far feature France in first with six points, Ecuador in second with three, and Switzerland in third with three. Ecuador must do better in this game today against France, than Switzerland does in its simultaneous match. But if France looses today, they could still be eliminated as well.
Today’s Ecuador vs. Francia 2014 game features France coming off of two wins in two games, resulting in six points. But in an unusual twist, that was not enough to advance them to the Copa Mundial Round of 16, unlike other Groups this week. The issue is the Swiss and Ecuador. Those squads have one win and one draw in their first two games. So France, with a loss today, could be eliminated. But how would this happen? LALATE can report that the key is the number of goals. France has eight goals before today. If they lose today, they could be tied in points with either or both Ecuador and Switzerland. But then the tie would be broken by the number of goals. France’s eight current goals however draw the current four goals by the Swiss and three goals by Ecuador.
France in their first game beat Honduras with three goals, and allowed none. Moreover, Benzema delivered a brace for his team. In game two, he scored again.
