Ecuador had a tremendous increase of performance level from October to November 2015, all while Brazil had been going through a tough chain of bad luck in October, but slowly graduating till the March of 2016. Although they could not meet the peak of Ecuador’s success where they were flying high. Brazil’s brilliant set of footballers failed to perform their level best this season, which is nothing less than daggers through their hearts.
