World Cup of big surprises smiles on Americas
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.
