Quinteros earned 26 international caps as a defender for Bolivia and became the manager of Ecuador in the Spring of 2015. La Tri are led by Antonio Valencia (Manchester United), Jefferson Montero (Swansea City) and Enner Valencia (Everton). Ecuador have previously appeared at Red Bull Arena in 2010 and 2011.
El Salvador, who have qualified twice for the World Cup and most recently the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup, are coached by Eduardo Lara. La Selecta are captained by Darwrin Ceren (San Jose Earthquakes). Rodolfo Zelaya (Alianza) currently sits tied for third all-time in team history with 19 goals.
Since opening in 2010, Red Bull Arena has been a destination for international Summer friendlies, including appearances by the United States Men’s & Women’s National team, Brazil, Colombia, and numerous club sides.
