Ecuador reaches second round in U20s

Ecuador clinched a place in the second round of South American Under-20 World Cup qualifying by defeating Bolivia 3-1 on Friday.
Goals by Walter Chala, Marcos Caicedo and Edson Montano meant Ecuador finished with seven points from four games in Group B and joined Brazil, which had already advanced. Bolivia finished with one point.
The final qualifier from Group B was to be decided later Friday when Colombia was to face Paraguay.
Argentina, Chile and Uruguay advanced from Group A. Second-round play begins Monday with all six teams playing each other. The top four advance to the U20 World Cup later this year in Colombia, and the top two advance to the 2012 London Olympics.
