FIFA World Cup 2014: Honduras vs Ecuador 26th Match in Pictures

Enner Valen­cia struck twice to give Ecuador a 2-1 World Cup win over Honduras on Friday and raise their hopes of making the last 16, leaving the Hondurans with only a first finals goal since 1982 as consolation.

France top Group ‘E’ with six points and a healthy goal difference while Ecuador and Switzerland each have three points. Honduras have lost twice and are facing likely elimination.

Honduras, who have yet to win a World Cup game in eight attempts, did at least have the satisfaction of ending that 32-year barren run when striker Carlo Costly drove home after 31 minutes to put them 1-0 up.
