Antonio Valencia: Ecuador captain has apologised for his red card

The Manchester United winger was shown a red card after clashing with Raheem Sterling 11 minutes from the end of the match which ended 2-2.

Valencia grabbed the Liverpool player by the neck in retaliation to a bad tackle by the 19-year-old forward who went over the top of the ball.

He said: "I apologised to the team after the match and the coach.

"I am sorry for the fight with Sterling. When he tackled me I thought about Segundo Castillo.

"He nearly missed the World Cup because of injury and I feared I would too but thankfully I am OK."

Team-mate Castillo nearly missed out on Ecuador's World Cup squad because of a knee injury sustained against Mexico.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
