In the other final Group E game, Switzerland defeated 3-0 Honduras to finish in second place and join France in the knockout stages.

Ecuador played a man short at Rio's Maracana stadium when Antonio Valencia was sent off on a straight red card in the 50th minute for digging his studs into the leg of French defender Lucas Digne.

France coach Didier Deschamps has made six changes to start the match, knowing his side was all but assured of advancing.

France came closest to scoring when Antoine Griezmann hit the post in the 47th.
