Soccer-Ecuador and France goalless at halftime


RIO DE JANEIRO, June 25 (Reuters) - Ecuador and France were

level at 0-0 at halftime after each side was denied by a fine

save in a tight final World Cup Group E match on Wednesday.

France midfielder Paul Pogba's strong header was brilliantly

tipped over by Alexander Dominguez seven minutes from the break

before Enner Valencia's powerful header for Ecuador was blocked

by the feet of France keeper Hugo Lloris.
