Ecuador face France in Group E, as the Ecuadorians hope to maintain their second position in the group to advance to the knockout stages. 

After a scoreless first half, things heated up a bit in the second. 

First Antoine Griezmann was narrowly denied due to a fantastic save from Ecuador goalkeeper Alexander Dominguez.

Then Antonio Valencia was sent off, rightfully, for an extremely reckless challenge against Lucas Digne

Antoinio Valencia sent off for 2nd time in four games. #ecu need something special after this challenge.
