MEXICO CITY - Colombian Reinaldo Rueda
marked his first match as coach of Ecuador with a 2-1 away win
over Mexico in a friendly on Saturday.
Rueda, who steered Honduras to this year's World Cup, was
appointed last month to replace Sixto Vizuete, sacked after
Ecuador failed to reach the finals in South Africa.
Striker Cristian Benitez put Ecuador in front after just 30
seconds of the match at the new Omnilife stadium in Guadalajara
with a powerful shot after beating several defenders inside the
Mexico equalised when Ecuador centre back Luis Armando
Checa turned the ball into his own net trying to clear a cross
from striker Javier Hernandez four minutes before half-time.
Forward Jaime Ayovi combined well with winger Antonio
Valencia before scoring the winner just before the hour with a
right footed shot.
Ecuador have another friendly away to Venezuela on Tuesday
when Mexico are at home against Colombia in Monterrey.
