France's Karim Benzema celebrates his goal against Honduras during their 2014 World Cup Group E soccer match at the Beira Rio stadium in Porto Alegre, June 15, 2014.

The South American teams in group E failed to impress like their over-achieving South American neighbors in the first four groups that finished their group stage matches. Both Ecuador and Honduras fell short of the mark and will be trekking home at the end of the group stage.

Honduras failed to win a single match while Ecuador put up a valiant fight managing to secure 4 points from three matches.

The final round started off with all of the teams still holding the possibility of qualification. France were on top with 6 point and only managed a draw on their last match but that proved to be enough to take them to the top of the group. Switzerland meanwhile, upheld the European honours by joining France in the next round by defeating Honduras convincingly at 3-0.

This shifts the momentum back to the Europeans who have already suffered the elimination of previous World Cup champions Spain, Italy and England.
