Brazil vs. Ecuador 2016 live stream: Time, TV schedule and how to watch World Cup qualifying online

Brazil's World Cup qualification hasn't gotten off to the start they wanted. It's time to fix that.

Coming on the heels of winning Olympic gold, it's time for Brazil to get their World Cup qualification back on track in CONMEBOL's group action. We say "back on track" because, despite a decent standing, the start to Brazil's qualifying run has decidedly not gone according to plan.

For their foes in this match, Ecuador, things have gotten off to almost a dream start. Through six matches, they're even atop the qualifying table with Uruguay with 13 points, suffering just one draw and one defeat thus far. It's been an impressive run, but now they're facing a Brazil side with momentum at their back and an eagerness to come flying up the table themselves.

Brazil are on nine points, not that far off the pace, but have won only twice in qualifying so far. They need to vastly improve on how they've played, because their sixth-place standing in the CONMEBOL table would not have them earn a place in the 2018 World Cup. That is obviously unacceptable for Brazil fans, so a win here against a hot team like Ecuador would be a big, big step in the right direction.
