Ecuador 1-0 Yugoslavia

Ecuador won their World Cup warm-up friendly against Yugoslavia, with a second-half goal from Agustin Delgado.

But the win at the Giants Stadium in the United States was overshadowed by three red cards.

Yugoslavian midfielder Dejan Stankovic was given his marching orders for a foul on Edwin Tenorio late in the first half.

And in the second 45 minutes Carlos Tenorio and Dejan Stefanovic were also dismissed.

Referee Rich Grady also awarded five yellow cards in an overly physical encounter.

Stefanovic saw red in the 41st minute, but Ecuador's one-man advantage was short-lived as Tenorio followed him off eight minutes after the re-start.

Yugoslavia had their second player dismissed when Grady gave Stefanovic a second yellow card for dissent immediately after Delgado's goal.

The Southampton striker pounced on a rebound in the penalty area after an intial acrobatic volley from playmaker Alex Aguinaga.

Ecuador will continue their build-up with a match against AC Milan, also in the United States, on Saturday.

Yugoslavia failed to reach the World Cup after finishing third in their qualifying group beind Russia and Slovenia.


Ecuador: Francisco Cevallos, Augusto Porozo, Ivan Hurtado, Ulises de la Cruz, Alfonso Obregon, Raul Guerron, Alex Aguinaga, Agustin Delgado, Cleber Chala (Carlos Tenario 45), Edison Mendez, Edwin Tenorio (Angel Fernandez 61)

Yugoslavia: Dragoslav Jervic (Vukasin Poleksic 90), Zoran Mirkovic, Dejan Stefanovic, Slavisa Jokanovic, Mladen Krstrajic, Nikola Lazetic, Predrag Mijatovic (Bojan Brnovic 89), Dejan Stankovic, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Sasa Ilic (Nanad Brnovic 62), Valdimir Ivic (Ivica Dragutinovic 73)

Referee: Rich Grady (USA).
