Ecuador head coach Reinaldo Rueda said that facing France at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro Wednesday will be a tough Group E clash of the FIFA World Cup 2014. “It will be difficult but the team is motivated,” Rueda said, reports EFE.

 

Ecuador came from behind to beat Honduras 2-1 on Friday, clinching their first win of the tournament. They will take on France, who thrashed Switzerland 5-2 Friday, in a game that will decide who will advance to the Round of 16.

 

Meanwhile, Honduras will play Switzerland at the Arena da Amazônia in Manaus on the same day.
