Enner Valencia header gives Ecuador lead over Honduras

Enner Valencia continued his hot World Cup, scoring the go-ahead goal for Ecuador in the 65th minute against Honduras on Friday. Valencia's second goal of the match and third goal of the tournament gave Ecuador a 2-1 lead just a few minutes after Honduras had a goal disallowed for the second time in the match.

Similar to his goal against Switzerland, Valencia rose above the defense to smack in a header, this time finishing a free kick from Walter Ayovi.

Valencia became the first Ecuadorian to ever score two goals in the same World Cup match.
