The ReRevival Again!
Now that the 2010 FIFA World Cup is over we can start looking for the next World Cup in Brazil! It is time to start a new refresh new players out with the old, in with the new and I will be here to take you every step of the way with La Tricolor! I have tons on my mind at the moment about Ecuador and will start posting regularly. I am officially back! Vamos Ecuador SI SE PUEDE!
Dear Carlos, Your Ecuador World Cup Blog is great! I was following “La Tricolor” since last year, when I became a visited Quito, the region north of Quito and the Galapagos. I am a fan of Ecuador, in general! But when I saw how far Honduras and Uruguay got in this year’s World Cup, I saw hope for a smaller country like Ecuador to pull through. Your insight will be very useful — it seems like Ecuador has to get more players into bigger international leagues, and then pull them back for 2014!
btw I was impressed with the intense training program in Barcelona, Spain (sending those boys away at age 10 or 12! It’s almost sad… but they seem to love it, and look at the beautiful team they have this year!) I wondered if there were opportunities like that for Ecuadorians.

Thanks for reading the blog Carolina, unfortunately there are aren’t as much opportunities to go to Europe at such a early age for Ecuadorians because club scouts mostly pay attention to the countries that are more know for their soccer talent so they browse around Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. Every now and then there is someone that a scout spots and gives them a chance but it rarely happens, for example Felipe Caciedo who played in Malaga FC of Spain last season was scouted at the age of 16 in Ecuador and after he showed his potential he was given a spot in the FC Basel team. Slowly Ecuadorians are making the country known for their soccer abilities with their performances in their respective European clubs. Hopefully in the not so distant future Ecuador will become a soccer powerhouse.
