Ecuador routs Bolivia 4-0 in exhibition

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) Christian Noboa, Juan Cazares, Enner Valencia and Junior Sornoza scored to lead Ecuador over Bolivia 4-0 in an exhibition Saturday night.

Ecuador, which failed to advance past the first round of the World Cup, went ahead when Noboa scored in the ninth minute off a cross from Renato Ibarra on a shot that rolled in off the hands of goalkeeper Daniel Vaca.

Cazares doubled the lead in the 33rd with a curling 25-yard shot, and Valencia made it 3-0 in the 65th after a pass from from Joao Rojas. Sornoza's shot from the center of the penalty area beat Vaca in the 83rd minute.

Ecuador had a 13-5 advantage in shots against Bolivia, which hasn't qualified for the World Cup since the 1994 tournament.
