After a group stage where there was some margin for error, there's none in the Copa America quarterfinals, which the USA and Ecuador kick off at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.

Both teams have a putrid history in knockout stages of major competitions, and Thursday night presents an opportunity to reach the semifinals, which was U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann's stated goal before the tournament. The U.S. will have to try to counter Ecuador's speed on the flanks without the suspended DeAndre Yedlin, while Ecuador will be hoping for a different result after falling to the U.S. in a pre-Copa friendly.
