Ecuador: Ecuador is seen as a surprise name in the World Cup stage but it looks like the South-American team has drawn inspiration from the tragic death of their player Christian Benítez. It is seen as a daunting task for Reinaldo Rueda’s side to qualify for the next round in their only fourth World Cup appearance. But one would expect Captain Antonio Valencia to inspire his side to proceed to a better finish this time around.
France: Having managed to help the national side win the World Cup as a player (1998), Didier Deschamps will be hoping he can do the same as the manager for the side. With a relatively young side, France can make a difference in the World Cup this time, looking to improve on a terrible run in South Africa.
