Ecuador v France Betting
2014 World Cup - Group E
25th June - KO: 9pm BST -
Rio de Janeiro
Ecuador and France will complete the Group E games on June 25 in Rio de Janeiro and this is all-important tussle for qualification to the second round of the 2014 World Cup. France will top the group with a draw or a win but Ecuador can still qualify with a win.
Didier Deschamps will be eager for France to show their true colours in Brazil after they have struggled to cause a stir on the world stage in recent years and will be hoping that they can recapture the World Cup trophy they won in front of their home fans in 1998, but a play-off victory over Ukraine could be the catalyst for a turn in fortunes and the European outfit will be confident of getting the better of Ecuador.
Ecuador have been touted as potential spoilers in Group E as they showed when gaining automatic qualification from the South American group that they can cause some upsets and finishing above Uruguay shows they will put up a fight against France in this intriguing clash on June 25.
France are favourites with the bookmakers to grab all three points in this final Group E match.

Felipe Caicedo - Ecuador have often struggled to hit the back of the net, but in Felipe Caicedo they have a man who could unlock a few defences at the World Cup and the Lokomotiv Moscow striker will be an integral part for the South American side.
Olivier Giroud - The Arsenal centre forward offers a wide range of attributes to his game and his front post runs in the opposition box can often catch defenders out and he could look to break the deadlock in this potential crunch match on June 25..
