Ecuador comes from behind to beat Honduras 2-1



By Pan Pylas

CURITIBA, Brazil (AP) - Ecuador forward Enner Valencia scored twice in a 2-1 comeback victory over Honduras on Friday that kept his team in contention at the World Cup.

Ecuador moved into second spot in Group E with a match remaining against group-leading France, which has had two dominating wins.

Honduras took the lead in the 31st minute with its first goal at the World Cup in 32 years when Carlo Costly latched onto a long ball following a mistake from Ecuador defender Jorge Guagua.

Valencia responded three minutes later, tapping in from close range.

He scored the winner came in the 65th when he out-jumped the defense to head home a free kick from Walter Ayovi. Ecuador lost its opening match 2-1 to Switzerland, but edged ahead of the Swiss on goal difference.
