Who is most likely to be named the star on the team?
Former West Ham striker Enner Valencia, now 33, remains the team’s most experienced striker. Now signed with Fenerbahce, he scored four goals in qualifying.
This could be a big tournament for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo, with Real Madrid reportedly interested in signing the 21-year-old as a replacement for Luka Modric. His transfer value could skyrocket if Ecuador has a strong run and he plays well.
