He spent the 2022-23 season at Śląsk Wrocław, where he showcased his skills in 32 games, scoring 10 goals and providing two assists
Ecuador is slated to go head-to-head with Bolivia in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Thursday, October 12, followed by a match against Colombia on Tuesday, October 17, 2023.
