The USA's Thursday friendly will be its 15th meeting with Ecuador, victim of a Landon Donovan hat trick in their 2007 clash in Tampa. Donovan scored all three goals in the 3-1
win with Bob Bradley at the U.S. helm. The USA's all-time record against Ecuador is four wins, five ties, and five losses, but it has a 4-1-2 (win-loss-tie) record in its last
seven games. Donovan's first goal in the March 25, 2007 match came just 35 seconds after kickoff.
