Jefferson Montero misses out for Ecuador due to a document issue (the same reason he did not play in the Tottenham preseason friendly). Immigration laws these days...
Anyhow, best of luck to all. Represent the club well, and most importantly, come back injury-free. This is an open thread to discuss the matches over the next few days. Endavant Villarreal!
