FULL-TIME: The referee sounds the final whistle and the Ecuadorian supporters erupt throughout the Arena da Baixada. Enner Valencia's brace proved to be enough for Ecuador to edge Honduras in yet another end-to-end, wildly entertaining match. The victory for the South Americans makes the final round of Group E clashes all the more interesting with France firmly in the driver's seat, though not guaranteed to qualify for the Round of 16. As it stands, all four teams have the ability to go through, so it will all go down to the wire when the teams meet on Wednesday, 25 June.

NO GOAL: Enner Valencia will have to wait for his hat-trick. Antonio Valencia is whistled for a handball before the counter-attack is sprung, so the ball comes back towards midfield for a Honduran free-kick.

Ecuador's supporters are on their feet, encouraging La Tri to hold off the Hondurans for just a few more minutes. Their passion is infectious, and the national pride on display is great to see.
