Ecuador World Cup 2022 squad: Who's in and who's out?

Ecuador prepare for their fourth World Cup appearance and will be looking to improve on their round of 16 finish back in 2006.

They booked their ticket for Qatar after coming fourth in the COMBEBOL qualifiers, finishing behind Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, but ahead of traditional heavyweights such as Chile and Colombia.

Ecuador will be involved in the tournament opener against hosts Qatar, before facing Netherlands and Senegal in their remaining Group A games.

They will be able to rely on experienced heads such as Enner Valencia and Carlos Gruezo, but have plenty of exciting youngsters coming through as well, with Moises Caicedo and Piero Hincapie probably the standout names.
