The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The World Cup of sur­prises is turn­ing into a sweet samba party for teams from the Amer­i­cas.

Hav­ing al­ready stunned one for­mer world cham­pion, lit­tle Costa Rica shocked an­other on Fri­day and sent a third one home. Then the French ex­ploded with five goals against their Swiss neigh­bors. In the evening game, Ecuador downed Hon­duras 2-1.

The story so far: Two Euro­pean pow­ers — Spain and Eng­land — are out of con­tention af­ter just two games.
