Copa America 2011, Brazil Vs. Ecuador: Lineups

We've come down to the final match of the Copa America group stage and amazingly Brazil still do not have a spot in the knockout stage secured. They will need a win or draw over Ecuador to ensure advancement, while Ecuador needs to defeat Brazil to go through. Venezuela and Paraguay have already secured a spot in the knockout stages from Group B, but the order in which they advance is still up for grabs.

Brazil is playing with their first choice team in their preferred 4-3-3 formation with Ganso sitting in front of the other two midfielders in the middle and behing the dangerous attacking trio of Robinho, Pato and Neymar. For Ecuador, they will have to deal without Antonio Valencia, who remains out due to injury,

Brazil (4-3-3): Julio Cesar; Maicon, Lucio, Thiago Silva, Andre Santos; Lucas Leiva, Ramires, Ganso; Robinho, Pato, Neymar

Ecuador (4-4-2): Marcelo Elizaga; Neicer Reasco, Norberto Araujo, Frickson Erazo, Walter Ayoví; Oswaldo Minda, Christian Noboa, Michael Arroyo, Edison Méndez; Christian Benítez, Geovanny Caicedo
