Ecuador coach Hernan Dario Gomez drew considerable satisfaction from the 1-0 victory over Yugoslavia in the United States on Wednesday night.

"We were always agressive, we fought for the ball all the time and the goal came as a reward for our superiority," Gomez told the press gathered in the Giants Stadium, New Jersey.

Ecuador prevailed thanks to a goal from Southampton striker Agustin "Tin" Delgado in the 69th minute.

Alex Aguinaga
Aguinaga's volley led to the Ecuador goal.

Gomez said the match was particularly valuable because his players faced a team with many characteristics in common with Croatia, their rivals in World Cup Group G along with Italy and Mexico.

Back in Ecuador, the press praised the win, suggesting that the starting line-up should be the one that kicks off against Mexico on 3 June.

"Smiles returned to the national team," was the headline in El Comercio newspaper.

"Tin is back," El Universo said, referring to Delgado's recovery from a knee injury.

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