What I really liked is that Ecuador seemed to figure out early on that you can really drill these balls and took a few long range shots. It didn't net direct results, but it sucked the Polish defense forward a bit and created some space to attack into behind it.
It seemed to me that in a lot of cases the ball was getting away from the Poles in their buildup and the Ecuadorans had superior legs and quickness, enabling them to take possession.
