Argentina, the 2022 World Cup champions, will face Ecuador in their first match in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in the South American zone. This match will take place on Thursday (7/9) at the Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti Stadium, Buenos Aires.
Argentina are in excellent form after winning the 2022 World Cup by beating France in a memorable final in Qatar. They are one of the strong candidates for the 2026 World Cup title, but they will have to face a difficult and long qualifying campaign.
The most important thing is that they have to get tickets to the biggest tournament on the planet. However, with what they show, this doesn’t seem to be that difficult. Lionel Messi and company have maintained a remarkable record in the near future. Since losing to Saudi Arabia in the opening match of the 2022 World Cup, La Albiceleste have won 10 matches in a row.
After winning the 2022 World Cup title, Argentina has won four consecutive FIFA Matchday friendlies, namely Panama, Curacao, Australia and Indonesia, and has kept a clean sheet in all four matches. Argentina will definitely want to start their 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign with a win and they have home advantage to do so.
Their opponents are Ecuador, a team that qualified for the 2022 World Cup but was eliminated from the group stage. However, they managed to achieve one win and score four goals while in Qatar. Apart from that, Ecuador is also a team that has had a fairly stable qualifying record over the years. They have participated in four of the last six World Cups.
Ecuador also had a good performance when they visited Buenos Aires, winning their last three matches. After beating Australia and Bolivia, coach Felix Sanchez’s team managed to win 3-1 over Costa Rica in their last match.
Both teams have the best preparation for this match. For Argentina, Messi, who successfully lifted Inter Miami in MLS, will be the leader of the attack line along with Julian Alvarez, a talented young player who is now shining alongside Erling Haaland at Manchester City, and possibly Lautaro Martinez, a striker who is in good form at the moment. Inter Milan.
For Ecuador, Moses Caicedo and Jose Cifuentes will be two prominent names in Ecuador’s midfield. Enner Valencia, who has 79 caps for the national team, will be the hope for their attack line.
Argentina is thought to still be the favorite to get their first three points in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in the South American zone. They have won all their last five games at home in all competitions. However, this will not be an easy victory for the ‘Tango dancers’. It’s worth remembering that most of Argentina’s stars have just returned after a grueling season at their clubs.
