Alexander Dominguez: 'Ecuador can be proud of World Cup campaign'

Ecuador goalkeeper Alexander Dominguez believes that the squad can be proud of their efforts at the World Cup.

Alexander Dominguez has claimed that Ecuador have every right to be proud of their World Cup campaign despite failing to progress from Group E.

Ecuador's challenge for a spot in the last 16 finished on Wednesday with a goalless draw against France, but Dominguez believes that the future looks bright for the current set of players.

"We knew we were going to face very strong opponents. We knew they had top-notch players, but trying to be up against all these monsters motivates you even more," the 27-year-old goalkeeper told

"We will analyse things in the most correct way and try to use this as an experience for everything that comes our way.

"We know we have a good team with excellent technical quality and hopefully this will benefit us."

Switzerland joined group winners France in qualifying from Group E.
