Ecuador come out on top
- The stat: qualified for their fourth U-20 World Cup and their second in a row
Coached by the Argentinian Jorge Celico, Ecuador were the most consistent side in Chile. Group winners in the first phase, they collected 19 points out of a possible 27 overall (more than any other side) and also top scored with 14 goals, an average of 1.55 per match.
Though they lost twice to Uruguay, who scored four of the six goals the Ecuadorians conceded, Celico’s men won their three matches against the other two sides who will be joining them in Poland.
Goalkeeper Moises Ramirez excelled, as did Gonzalo Plata and Leonardo Campana, the tournament’s leading scorer with six goals.
