Switzerland v Ecuador
Estadio Nacional, Brasilia
Kick-off
: 17.00 BST.
 

  Team News Ottmar Hitzfeld, the Swiss coach, has a fully fit squad to choose from so his main decision is whether to partner Steve von Bergen with new Aston Villa signing Philippe Senderos. Fabian Schar or Johan Djourou in the centre of defence.
Experienced Ecuador midfielder Segundo Castillo was ruled out of the tournament on Monday with a knee injury. His place in the squad has been taken by Osvaldo Minda but he is unlikely to start.
Christian Noboa is also a doubt, having sustained a knock in the friendly draw with England, but Manchester United’s Antonio Valencia is available despite being sent off in the friendly for grappling with Raheem Sterling.
Match Notes
Switzerland are notoriously tight at the back, so there may be few, if any, goals in Brasilia.
These teams have never met before but Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side were unbeaten in World Cup qualification, winning seven and drawing three of their 10 qualifiers.
Ecuador have never drawn a game at a World Cup, winning three and losing four so far.
Indeed, la Tri have won all three games in which they have kept a clean sheet in the competition, but lost all four they have conceded in.
 
Stat of the game: Switzerland have conceded only one goal in their last seven World Cup games.
Switzerland (Possible, 4-2-3-1): Drmic; Stocker, Von Bergen, Schar, Shagiri; Behrami, Inler; Rodriguez, Von Bergen, Scar; Benaglio.
 
Ecuador (Possible, 4-4-2): Dominguez; Paredes, Guagua, Erazo, Ayovi; A Valencia, Noboa, Gruezo, Mentero; Caicedo, E Valencia.
