Felipe Caicedo proved to be one of Ecuador's most valuable players in their 2014 World Cup qualification matches, scoring seven goals in nine appearances. Caicedo will be the main striker for Ecuador, and could be a strong betting tip to pay off in individual goalscorer markets from the side's trio of Group E fixtures.
After spending his youth career playing at Barcelona and native side Rocafuerte, Caicedo was signed by FC Basel in 2005 and was then quickly snapped up by Premier League side Manchester City for £5.2 million three years later.
Although only offered substitute appearances initially during his first year, Caicedo scored his first goal for City the following season in an UEFA Cup game against Racing de Santander. He began to impress as a single striker for the club, and scored five goals before a loan spell at Sporting CP.
A year later, a loan deal to Levante UD for the 2010/11 season revitalized his career, scoring seven goals in just 12 initial appearances and ending the campaign on 13 goals.
His move to Lokomotiv Moscow in 2011 saw him make 51 appearances until 2013, during which he shone in the Russian Premier League. 11 goals fell his way in that time, including numerous assists that marked him out as a key player.
Having made his international debut in 2005 for Ecuador, Caicedo has since notched up 50 appearances for his national side and scored 15 goals up to the present day.
Caicedo was a star performer in Ecuador's 2014 World Cup qualifying efforts, scoring seven goals in nine match appearances.
Felipe Caicedo World Cup betting tips
Those international goals could continue to come from Caicedo when you look at Ecuador's Group E World Cup fixture list, with wins there to be taken from matches against Honduras, Switzerland and favourites, France. Caicedo carries the shortest betting odds to be Ecuador's top scorer at the tournament, but should profit much more in individual goalscorer markets.
