USMNT vs Ecuador live TV listings: June 16, 2016 Copa América quarter-final

June 15, 2016 By Michelle Bonsu
The USMNT and Ecuador will square off in the Copa América Centenario quarter-finals at CenturyLink Field on Thursday, June 16th. Here are some live TV listings & online streaming options for the USMNT vs Ecuador.

A bit over three weeks since clashing in a friendly, the USMNT and Ecuador will meet yet again. This time, however, the stakes are much higher as both the Stars and Stripes and Los Amarillos be vying for a spot in the Copa América Centenario semi-finals. And both sides will be eager to outwit one another as they seek to set up a potential match with either Venezuela or Argentina in the final four.


It goes without saying that Jurgen Klinsmann's men did not start off their Copa América Centenario on the right foot, with a 2-0 defeat to Colombia not the result they had hoped for in their opener. However, the Yanks bounced back in spectacular fashion as they scored five goals - and conceded none - in their next two matches against Costa Rica and Paraguay en route to topping Group A. In their last match, veteran striker Clint Dempsey was the hero of the night as his solitary strike was enough to seal a much-needed win.

Dempsey netted his 51st career goal for the USMNT against Paraguay to clinch all three points for his side, and he will be expected to make an impact versus Ecuador this Thursday

To date, the best ever finish the USMNT have achieved at this tournament was a fourth placed result back in the 1995 edition. But given that they are hosting it on home soil, there is naturally the added incentive to get their hands on what would be their first trophy since winning the Gold Cup in 2013. Of course, with teams like Argentina, Colombia, and Chile for company, the Stars and Stripes will face a tall order to make it to the final - but as fans saw this season with Leicester City, anything is possible in football.

In any case,  can take one step closer towards the final by, obviously beating Ecuador on Thursday. However, Klinsmann will have some major concerns heading into this match - namely due to the number of players walking a suspension tightrope.

Defenders Michael Orozco, Fabian Johnson, and John Brooks, midfielders Alejandro Bedoya, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones, and striker Bobby Wood all have picked up yellows and will miss out on the semi-final if they pick up another booking. Meanwhile, DeAndre Yedlin will be banned after accumulating two yellows in rapid succession against Paraguay, leaving his teammates to have to finish the game with a man down. 


Meanwhile, Ecuador, as USMNT fans observed, will be a tough side to break down defensively. To prevent Brazil from scoring is no easy feat, and in fact, were it not for a controversial offside call, they might have picked up all three points. They also fought from 2-0 down to salvage a draw against eventual group-winners Peru, and cruised to a very easy 4-0 win over Haiti.

Gustavo Quinteros's side will be gunning for revenge after losing their last meeting with the USA. Although it was just a pre-tournament friendly, it marked the first time in nine years that La Tricolor were unable to get the better of the Stars and Stripes - and they will be keen on making sure that this time around, they're the ones coming out on top. 

Three Premier League-based players - Antonio Valencia, Jefferson Montero, and Enner Valencia -  will be the go-to men for Ecuador. Both Valencias (who are not related) have been responsible for three goals (or 50 per cent of Ecuador's total thus far) and will be looking to cause the USA's back-line quite a bit of headaches on Thursday evening.
