Group Match - Ecuador Turn it Around

Group E

Travel to Honduras Honduras vs Travel to Ecuador Ecuador in Curitiba.

Match Preview

Of the thirteen matches Honduras and Ecuador have played together, eight have been draws; the last being two goals each in Houston (19/11/2013).

This is the first meeting betwen the two teams in World Cup competition.

The Match

With both teams without a point before the game, a draw would have been enough for France to qualify, after their avalanche of goals against Switzerland.

Some could be forgiven for thinking that this was a game of the also-rans but one of these teams could turn out to be the king maker.

Goalscorers 1:0
Carlo Costly opened the scoring for Honduras just after the half-hour, when Alexander Dominguez failed to deal with the ball cleanly.

Goalscorers 1:1
Within a few minutes, Enner Valencia was on hand to finish what Juan Paredes couldn't and pull Ecuador level.

Carlo Costly headed the ball onto the bar, just before the break, as Honduras looked for their second World Cup goal.

Half-time: Honduras 1 - Ecuador 1

Honduras had a goal ruled out for offside just before the hour, then the tables turned again.

Goalscorers 1:2
Enner Valencia headed home from a Walter Ayovi free-kick, to set Ecuador up nicely for their final group game.

This result meant that the French weren't yet through and the Swiss weren't out; so everything still to play for in Group E, even for Honduras.
