West Ham striker Enner Valencia helped Ecuador earn a crucial 2-2 draw with Peru by scoring in the group stages of the Copa America at the University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale in Arizona yesterday. Valencia’s equaliser six minutes before half-time kept Ecuador in the hunt for qualification from the Copa America Centenario group phase. La Tricolor were staring elimination in the face when Peru raced to a two-goal inside 13 minutes.
Enner Valencia’s Copa America campaign got underway in the early hours of last Sunday as Ecuador battled to a 0-0 draw with Brazil. Valencia played 81 minutes of the Group B draw in Pasadena, with Peru defeating Haiti 1-0 in the group’s other fixture.
Winning his 26th cap with Ecuador, his Group B campaign concludes this Sunday when they take on Haiti at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
