September 8, 2008

Ecuador forward Cristian Benitez has been ruled out of Wednesday`s World Cup qualifying clash with Uruguay due to injury.

The Santos Laguna player aggravated an old leg injury in the 3-1 triumph over Bolivia and has flown to Mexico for treatment.

It was a second blow for boss Sixto Vizuete ahead of the Charruas` visit as defender Necier Reasco had already been ruled out after breaking his left leg.
