Soccer-Honduras and Ecuador all-square at halftime


CURITIBA, Brazil, June 20 (Reuters) - Carlo Costly scored

Honduras's first World Cup goal in more than 30 years on Friday

but an equaliser for Ecuador from Enner Valencia just three

minutes later left the teams level at 1-1 at halftime of their

Group E match on Friday.

Costly smashed home a half-volley from the edge of the box

to give Honduras the lead in the 31st minute but the central

Americans then lost their concentration and Ecuador struck back

in the 34th when a mishit shot from Juan Carlos Paredes was

tapped into the net at the far post by Enner Valencia.
