Sunday, June 22, 2014

CURITIBA, Brazil - Ecuador moved into second place in Group E as two goals from Enner Valencia handed them a 2-1 win against Honduras in Curitiba.

Honduras looked on course for their first ever World Cup win when Carlo Costly fired them in front in the 31st minute, but Valencia levelled from close range three minutes later.

And the Pachuca striker moved alongside Karim Benzema, Robin Van Persie, Thomas Mueller and Arjen Robben as the tournament's top scorer with three goals when he headed home the winner from Walter Ayovi's free kick, 25 minutes from time.

Ecuador now lead Switzerland on goal difference with both sides locked on three points after two games behind group leaders France on six.

However, Honduras can also still qualify despite losing both of their games so far, should they heavily defeat the Swiss and Ecuador lose against France.
