Gomez asked to stay on
Alex Aguinaga is to be helped to 100 caps
Alex Aguinaga is to be helped to 100 caps
Ecuador coach Hernan Dario Gomez is mulling over a new contract offer from his national federation.

Gomez, a Colombian, guided Ecuador to an unprecedented second-place in the South American qualifying and a first appearance at the World Cup finals.

He is now considering a new deal which would take him through to the 2006 World Cup.

"We talked to Hernan and told him we want him to stay. He asked us for time to make the decision," Ecuadorean football association president Luis Chiriboga said.

"We don't know if it will be one month or two. We just have to wait."

Ecuador went out in the first round after defeats by Mexico and Italy but they drew considerable pride from a win over Croatia.

Chiriboga believes Gomez has put together a side capable of performing at a consistently high level in international football.

"With them we have to think about qualifying again for Germany 2006," he said.

Ecuador plan a friendly match against a "top-level national team" so captain Alex Aguinaga can reach 100 matches with the national team before retiring.
