After 32 years, Honduras scores first World Cup goal
Their lead was short-lived as Ecuador equalized three minutes later through Enner Valencia
Honduras scored their first goal at the World Cup finals since 1982 when striker Carlo Costly put them 1-0 up in the Group E match against Ecuador on Friday.
Costly drove the ball home after 31 minutes when a rebound from a long ball dropped into his path.
Honduras, appearing at the finals for the third time, had last scored in the tournament when they drew 1-1 with Northern Ireland on June 21, 1982.
They had since gone five games at the World Cup without scoring, including a goalless campaign in 2010.
Their lead was short-lived as Ecuador equalized three minutes later through Enner Valencia.
