Jefferson Montero has returned to Emelec, in Ecuador, on a sub-loan from Getafe.

Swansea City winger Jefferson Montero has joined former club Emelec on a sub-loan from Spanish side Getafe for the remainder of the season.

The Ecuadorian football season is coming to an exciting conclusion

Emelec have secured a place in the Ecuadorian Primera A final; which other Ecuadorian team will join them?

The Wright brothers, of course, were pioneers of aviation -- while a pair of siblings by the same name were responsible for getting Ecuadorian football off the ground.

Juan Alfredo and Roberto Wright came back to the country at the turn of the 20th century after a few years studying in England -- and part of their intellectual baggage was a knowledge of and passion for football.

Emelec keeper concedes 93rd-min. winner from 75 yards

We're skipping back to last Sunday here, with LDU Quito beating reigning champions Emelec 2-1 in the Ecuadorian top flight to shore up third place in the table.

However, it could have been a different story for Emelec as they were within seconds of clinching themselves a well-deserved point when the game ticked over into the 93rd minute with the scores level at 1-1.
