ECUADOR and Japan are a win away from the Copa America knockout stages, despite both having underwhelming campaigns so far.
The Ecuadorians have a horrific record in this competition, having not beaten a single South American team at 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 by 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.
In Brazil, that is 8pm on Monday, June 24.
The match will be held at Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte.
Premier Sports will be showing live UK coverage of all the matches in the Copa America across its two channels.
The channels can be purchased to add to Virgin and Sky packages from £9.99 a month.
You can also live stream for the same cost via Premier Player.
