An old acquaintance is the hero in Venezuela: Eduard Bello gives Vinotinto victory against Ecuador

The former Deportes Antofagasta midfielder joined the squad and played a key role in Llanera’s comeback. He started the tying game and scored the winning goal for his team.

Venezuela adds three golden points at the start of the season America’s Cup. La Vinotinto have established themselves as one of South America’s promising teams and in Santa Clara, California, they demonstrated it with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Ecuador at the start of Group B.

Among those led by Fernando Batista there were key names. For example, goalkeeper Rafael Romo, who made three notable saves. Also the historic Salomón Rondón, capable of appearing at all the scene of the attack at 34 years old.

The balance began to tip in favor of the llaneros when Enner Valencia was sent off after a nasty kick to the chest from José Andrés Martínez. Judge Wilmar Roldán was summoned by the VAR, where the Chilean Juan Lara was. From there, Ecuador lost control of the match.

Almost by chance and taking advantage of a defensive error, Jeremy Sarmiento gave the lead to those led by Félix Sánchez in the 42nd minute. But, by procedure the tie was about to fall.

Jhonder Cadiz scored first. This is where the figure of Eduard Bello begins to emerge. The former Antofagasta player joined Rondón, he landed with Cádiz and the striker beat veteran Alexander Domínguez with a powerful shot at the near post.

Later, Bello was the hero. Once again with Rondón as protagonist. A header from the striker was saved by the goalkeeper, but the rebound was left in the midfield of the match. Mazatlan and he did not send the ball to the back of the goal. The score adjusts to what happened on the playing field.
