Ecuador boss Gustavo Alfaro was happy with Brighton winger Jeremy Sarmiento after their World Cup qualifying win against Venezuela.

He played 76 minutes and was a bright spot of a somewhat laboured 1-0 win over bottom side Venezuela in the South American qualifying group for the World Cup.

Alfaro said: “Jeremy made a good impression on me.

“We had a chat (the day before the game) and he told me he was very happy and enjoying his time with Ecuador.

“I asked him to feel a sense of freedom and I asked him, at the age of 19, to never lose his generosity, his capacity to run, his humility."
