England started with Rickie Lambert upfront on his own while Ox-Chamberlain, Barkeley and Wayne Rooney started just behind the main striker with Lampard and Wilshere playing deep in central midfield roles. England had to suffer an early set back when Ecuador striker Enner Valencia scored in the 8th minute of the game to make it 1-0 but a goal from Wayne Rooney in 30th minute of the game put england back on level terms.
Score was 1-1 at the break and Ricky Lambert scored just after the break to put England 2-1 up and things were looking pretty easy from than before totaly against the run of play Arroyo scored to make it 2-2 on the night. A moment of controversy occured in 79th minute when referee gave Sterling and Antonio Valencia their marching orders with straight red cards.
Referee was a bit harsh of Liverpool forward Rahim Sterling who did not deserve the red card but Valencia reacted angerly on Sterling rought tackly and shove him away catching him from the neck. Game finished 2-2 and both the players who recieved red cards wont be suspeded for the world cup opening game.
