Italian spy in Ecuador camp

Ecuador have opened the doors of their training camp to a spy from their Group G rivals Italy.

The World Cup debutants allowed Italian assistant coach Conrado Coradino into their Tottori base to watch a training session.

Coradino was given the run of the camp and an Ecuador Football Federation spokesman said: "Our coach Bolillo Gomez believes there is nothing to hide."

The two sides meet in their Group G encounter at Sapporo on 3 June, and Coradino was impressed with what he saw.

Coradino said: "Our coach Giovanni Trappatoni has great respect for Ecuador.

"He's quite worried by their game because of both the individual skills and their collective play."

Ecuador coach Gomez remained tight-lipped after his side's 1-0 defeat to Senegal in a friendly.

Gomez was so disappointed with Ecuador's performance he refused to attend the post-match press conference.

But he told his own personal website that his team had performed poorly and was particularly disappointed that they had not followed his game-plan.
