Golazo: Agustín Delgado, Ecuador vs Brazil, World Cup qualifier 2001.

On 28 March 2001: Ecuador played Brazil in Quito in what was to become a historic World Cup qualifier. Iván Kaviedes received the ball from Alex Aguinaga and ran at the Brazilian defence taking the ball past three defenders, his cross/shot was turned into the net by Agustín Delgado to give Ecuador a famous 1-0 win, their first ever triumph against the Brazilians. Later that year Kaviedes scored his most famous goal to give Ecuador the draw they needed against Uruguay to earn their first appearance at a World Cup finals in 2002.
