Ecuador vs Japan: Live stream, TV channel, kick off time, and team news for Copa America 2019 game


ECUADOR and Japan are a win away from the Copa America last 16, despite both having underwhelming campaigns so far.

The Ecuadorians have a horrendous record in this competition, having not beaten a single South American team in the Copa America since 2001.

And they are without a point after a 4-0 loss to Uruguay was followed up by a 2-1 defeat against Alexis Sanchez and Chile.

Japan are flying the flag for Asia after Qatar’s elimination but also lost their first game 4-0, against Chile, before being forced to settle for a 2-2 draw against Uruguay after a series of controversial VAR decisions.

But both teams will still qualify as one of two best third placed sides with a win after Paraguay came third in Group B with just two points.

This Copa America clash will take place on Tuesday, June 25 at 12am UK time.
