Gooooood evening everyone.
It’s actually early hours of Saturday morning where I am, so good morning to you also if that’s relevant.
Welcome to our LIVE coverage of Brazil’s World Cup qualifier against Ecuador. It’s my pleasure to be able to bring it to you.
Tite’s men are a perfect four wins from four in South American qualifying so far and can move four points clear of closest challengers Argentina with a win tonight.
But they face an Ecuador team who are off to a pretty good start themselves having won three of four games.
Plenty on the line then, just what we like.
Kick-off in Porto Alegre is around 55 minutes away – I’ll bring you all the build-up including team news very shortly.
