After a lively start at the Rose Bowl, the match petered out to a 0-0 draw, though the storyline was a disallowed goal for Ecuador, which was unfortunate not to claim all three points. Miler Bolaños' cross-turned-shot somehow found the back of the net from the byline after a howler from Brazil goalkeeper Alisson, but the ball was deemed to have gone out of play.
