Equador come into this game knowing that they have a chance to qualify but most likely have to beat France in order to qualify. Equador were desperately unlucky to lose to Switzerland having led the game for most of the match but then conceded in the 93rd minute to lose it. Led by the pair of Valencia's , Antonio of Manchester United fame and Ener the young equadorian who is lighting up this world cup so far with three goals in two games. Equador have played well in both games so far and i expect them to play well again here against a French team that has looked susceptible to quick counter attacking.
The french have been very impressive so far. Karim Benzema has been particularly terrific, with Frank Ribery ruled out through injury the mantle of star man fell to Benzema and he has not disappointed. The Real Madrid striker has led from the front, held the ball up and been a focal point for most everything the French have done going forward. With a good solid midfield and a strong back four this French side look set up for a deep run in Brazil.
Two teams that like to attack, the French only need a draw to top the Group and while Equador need a result there is no guarantee that will be enough to get them through. I think this will be a fun game to watch and i'm looking forward to it. I am taking both teams to score here in what should be a game that also sees the overs cash. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
