[World Cup] Key Player Review: Ecuador – Christian Noboa

Ecuador’s main strength is their pace and energy down the flanks, with two attacking full-backs in Juan Carlos Paredes and Walter Ayovi, plus direct wingers in Antonio Valencia and Jefferson Montero.

But the fact they possess so much quality out wide means the key player is actually elsewhere, and Noboa is the one Ecuadorian capable of commanding the midfield zone and spreading the play intelligently to the flanks.

Ecuador can otherwise be too frantic and rushed in their play, but Noboa brings an air of calm without disrupting the overall game plan.
