Colombia vs. Greece
Minute Commentary
90' MATCH SUMMARY
Game but limited, Greece ultimately went the way we feared they might as they were ultimately swept aside by an extremely exciting looking Colombia side - albeit one who sometimes suffered from their own lack of killer ball in the final third. Arnero opened the scoring after just five minutes, with Greece then chasing hard for the rest of the first-half. With Colombia dropping their tempo at the beginning of the second period, the European side looked like they might be able to get back into it - that is until Gutierrez got across his man at the near post to turn home a corner. Gekas summed up Greece's toothlessness, heading against the bar from five yards out - and in injury time of the second period Colombia made sure. A quick free-kick saw the ball worked up to Rodriguez who tucked home from inside the area. Colombia in this form will be favourites to get out of their group - Greece look to have a long 180 minutes ahead of them.
90' FULL-TIME WHISTLE
And there's the full-time whistle. Great start for Colombia - for Greece this could be a sign of things to come.
90' GOOOAAALLL!!!
There's the gloss on the result. A quick free-kick taken from the right sees Ibarbo surge towards the Greece penalty area. The ball finds Cuadrado who back heels it to Rodriguez who tucks it away. Job done.
90' RODRIGUEZ LACKING FINAL BALL
Colombia continue to push for a third with Rodriguez finding plenty of space down the left - like his fellow wide-man Victor Ibarbo though, he's struggling to find any end product.
87' SAMARAS STILL FIGHTING
Samaras is the only man still fighting for the Greeks and he once again bundles his way up into the penalty area from the left. He loses possession though and Colombia counter.
84' SAMARAS FIRES JUST WIDE
Georgios Samaras goes close for Greece as he drills a low shot just wide of the left-hand post from outside the area.
81' COLOMBIA IN CONTROL
The "oles" are ringing out around the ground for Colombia as they stroke the ball about. In fairness to them they are looking for a third goal - although the pace of the game has undoubtedly dropped.
78' GREEK SUBSTITUTION
Georgios Karagounis has come on for his 136th cap, replacing Panagiotis Kone. Kone has been a bright spot for Greece today.
76' COLOMBIA SUBSTITUTION
There's acres of space at the back for Colombia to exploit now but they aren't moving as fluently as they'd like - another move breaks down on the right before Rodriguez' cross fails to find its man. Martinez then comes on for the goal scorer Gutierrez.
74' COLOMBIA SUBSTITUTION
Time for another Colombia change. The goalscorer Pablo Armero has come off and is replaced by Santiago Arias - the yellow shirts are coasting as it stands, a good first day at the office for them.
71' COLOMBIA COUNTER
Greece are still trying to get forward but they surely aren't going to get anything from this. A corner from Ioannis Fetfatzidis comes in from the right but Colombia manage to get it clear - they streak away on the counter attack but Rodriguez runs into an offside position and has to stall, breaking down the move.
68' SUBSTITUTIONS BOTH SIDES
Here comes a Colombia substitution as Alexander Mejia comes on to replace Aguilar. You'll also be unsurprised to know that - following that miss - Gekas has been replaced by Mitroglou.
63' GEKAS MISSES SITTER
Oh dear, oh dear. That pretty much sums up Greece's precision in front of goal. Torosidis does brilliantly to get to the byline and volleys the ball back across goal - Gekas only has to head it in front of him and it's a goal but he contrives to hit the bar from five yards out. Unbelievable miss.
60' GREECE TRY TO STRIKE BACK
Samaras almost manages to get on the end of Torosidis' ball from the right but it's just ahead of him and runs through to the goalkeeper. The Colombia fans have upped the noise levels since that second goal - and it feels like a home match here in Fortaleza.
58' GOOOAALLL
Does that settle it? They haven't come out looking convincing in this second period but, from Rodriguez' corner from the right, Gutierrez manages to beat his man at the near post to guide a right-footed shot past Karnezis.
56' GREEK SUBSTITUTION
Dimitrios Salpingidis is booked and then finds himself substituted. Ioannis Fetfatzidis has come on for the Greeks. Ibarbo's joyful running is becoming less so as he continues to fail in producing a quality final ball.
53' RODRIGUEZ EFFORT
Sokratis Papastathopoulos goes into Ibarbo and Colombia have a free-kick in a promising position. Rodriguez steps up to take the free-kick but he can only fire it into the wall.
49' RODRIGUEZ EFFORT
James Rodriguez peppers the goal from range, firing low at Karnezis. It's an easy save for the goalie.
48' GREECE PENALTY SHOUT!
Georgios Samaras wants a penalty as he surges into the area and goes to ground under a challenge - but the referee says no way and Colombia have a goal-kick. Probably the right decision.
46' SECOND PERIOD RESUMES
Here we go for the second period - Greece are now playing from left to right. No changes on either side by the looks of it; still brilliant sunshine here.
45' HALF-TIME SUMMARY
Greece have had 57% of possession but as expected it's Colombia who have been the most dangerous and the South Americans deserve their one-goal lead. Only five minutes had gone when Armero hit the ball low into the bottom left of the goal after a brilliant dummy from James Rodriguez. Greece were then forced to chase the game, but for all their endeavour - and the brightness of Panagiotis Kone - they've looked susceptible on the counter-attack, struggling to deal with the pace that Colombia have in abundance. Victor Ibarbo is constantly looking to take his man on down the left flank, while Gutierrez is proving a handful.
45' END OF HALF
And that's half-time. Colombia a goal to the good here.
45' KONE SEES SHOT SAVED
Kone again shows his spark, following up on a deflected ball on the edge of the area, to curl a right-footed shot to the top corner - however Ospina tips it away for a corner. Colombia cope with the set-piece but Greece are definitely in this - if only they could be that instinctive more often.
42' COLOMBIA STILL DANGEROUS
For Greece it's Kone who's looked most likely to do something - the only one to really be running at defenders. Colombia look full of energy every time they attack though; another foray down the right leads to a corner, and from Rodriguez' eventual cross, Aguilar has a header saved.
39' ANOTHER GREECE CORNER WASTED
Greece have another corner but once again they can't do much with it. Looking as toothless as feared so far it has to be said.
38' COLOMBIA COUNTER-ATTACK ALMOST COMES OFF
Up the other end and a Colombia counter-attack almost sets free Gutierrez but he can't quite get onto the end of it. They do look so much more instinctive going forward than their opponents.
37' GREECE CORNER
Greece are starting to get on top and have a corner, which Kone whips in from the right. However the blue shirts can't make much of it and Colombia come away with it.
31' SAMARAS BRINGS OUT SAVE
Greece finally start to look dangerous in attack as Samaras has a shot after darting in from the left, which Ospina manages to save.
28' GREECE GO CLOSE!
Another free-kick from Greece and this time they do rather better from it. Cholevas whips the ball in from the left and centre-back Torosidis gets his head to the ball - guiding it narrowly wide of the post.
26' SANCHEZ BOOKED
The first booking of the game goes to Colombia's Carlos Sanchez after a trip on Samaras in the centre of the field. He can have no complaints about that - Greece fail to make much from the subsequent set-piece however.
25' LIGHTNING IBARBO
Ibarbo is always looking to take on his man down the left - it's a joy to watch. He gets the beating of the first man as he surges towards the penalty area, and tries to go past a second; but is dispossessed with a perfectly-timed challenge in the box.
22' GAME SETTLING
The game has settled down a little as the Brazilian sun beats down on Fortaleza. We're near the coast here so the heat might not be as much of an issue as it will be in other games - plus of course we've two sides used to playing in warmer temperatures.
18' COLOMBIA GOING THROUGH THE GEARS
Colombia are starting to the turn the tide a little. First of all Gutierrez bursts into the box but is denied by an excellent tackle. Then James Rodriguez follows up with a shot from range that Karnezis has to get down to save. The South Americans' pace is proving a real handful so far.
16' STRENGTH FROM ZUNIGA
Juan Zuniga shows his strength down the right, muscling ex-Celtic man Georgios Samaras off the ball. However the move breaks down when a Colombian attacker strays into an offside position. It's a sea of yellow here - Colombia fans heavily outnumber the blue-shirted Greek fans.
14' PLENTY OF GREEK PRESSURE
Greece have plenty of the ball at the moment but so far Colombia are coping well with the pressure. 38 year-old Mario Yepes shows his commitment hasn't waned over the year - risking a boot to the head to take the ball off Dimitrios Salpingidis' foot. He gains a free-kick for the high boot.
11' GREECE FREE-KICK
Greece have a free-kick right in the centre of the field after a foul by Ibarbo. It's 25 yards out just to the right of goal - Cholevas strikes it but can only fire it into the wall. They've certainly looked to attack in this first ten minutes, Greece - the trouble is they're already a goal behind.
6' GREECE GO CLOSE!
Greece come up the other end and have a shot go just wide of the post through Panagiotis Kone on the edge of the area. They're going to have to chase the game now - which isn't the sort of thing they're often set up for.
5' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Colombia lead! Sweeping quickly up the other end of the field following that save, the goal was made by Ibarbo, jinking in from the right before James Rodriguez allowed the ball to run inside the penalty area. Armaro scuffed his shot but it hits a defender and trickles past goalkeeper Karnezis.
5' EARLY GREEK SHOT
Greece have an early effort from range through the right boot of Ioannis Maniatis but it's comfortable for Colombian goalkeeper Ospina.
3' EARLY COLOMBIA ATTACK
Colombia make an early attempt to wrench open the bus doors by attacking down the right but Greece are wise to it. Victor Ibarbo looks keen to cut in off the flank already.
1' WE'RE UNDER WAY!
Here we go then! Colombia are wearing yellow shirts and white shorts, playing from left to right. Greece are in their familiar all-blue.
0' FALCAO THERE FOR MORALE SUPPORT
The referee today is Mark Geiger. It's worth noting too that injured Colombia striker Radamel Falcao is with the squad to give morale support - he was there to give them each a hug as they ran onto the field. A classy touch from a player who must be gutted he can't be out there himself.
0' TEAMS ON THE FIELD
The teams are out and going through the national anthems. For Greece, there's no Konstantinos Mitroglou in the starting line-up - his place has been taken by Theofanis Gekas. Colombia choose Teofilo Gutierrez to lead the attack, though he'll gain plenty of support from James Rodriguez and Victor Ibarbo.

0' WELCOME TO BELO HORIZONTE
Good evening and welcome to Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte, where a Colombia outfit who've lost some of their lustre in light of the World Cup withdrawal of leading striker Falcao, come up against a Greece side who threw away the keys to their parked bus years ago. The Greeks will rely on the same miserly defensive tactics that saw them unexpectedly win the European Championships some ten years ago – although the names on the team sheet have changed. For Colombia, this is their first World Cup finals game in 16 years and the enthusiasm coming into the campaign has been doused somewhat by injuries to Falcao – as well as Edwin Valencia, Luis Perea and Aldo Ramirez. Ivory Coast and Japan make for an evenly-matched quartet in Group C – getting an opening win today is key for both sides.
0' CAN COLOMBIA COPE WITH INJURY?
As mentioned, the optimism surrounding the current crop of Colombia players took a huge dint with pre-tournament injuries to four of the squad's key players – with none more devastating than the knee injury suffered by Radamel Falcao in January that ultimately ended his hopes. With nine goals for Colombia in qualification, the 28-year-old was seen as one of the potential players of the tournament. As it is, the South Americans will be relying on playmaker James Rodriguez – Falcao's teammate at Monaco – and Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado, with possibly Jackson Martinez leading the line. Veteran defender Mario Yepes is also in the squad at 38, and is likely to win his 100th international cap during the tournament.
0' GREECE DEFENCE AGAIN THE KEY
They drew as much criticism as they did plaudits when sensationally winning Euro 2004 with a rigidly defensive game plan, but Greece have stuck to Otto Rehhagal's template even after he left his managerial post in 2010. New coach Fernando Santos seems to have realised that, with a creative dearth, putting men behind the ball is the best chance of success – and so it's proved with consecutive qualifications for Euro 2012 and now World Cup 2014. Borussia Dortmund's Sokratis Papastathopoulos could be key in defence – while Olympiakos talisman-turned-Fulham flop Konstantinos Mitroglou will provide their main attacking threat. He's only played three times for the Londoners since joining them, but had scored 23 in as many games for Olympiakos before that.
0' HOW THEY QUALIFIED
As always, the sole CONMEBOL round-robin qualification group was an almighty ruckus with an early home defeat to Argentina putting Colombia under pressure. However key wins, including a 4-0 thumping of Uruguay and a 3-1 victory in Chile helped José Pékerman's side to a best-ever qualification points total of 30 and a well-deserved second spot behind Argentina. As for Greece, they trundled through their group true to form, conceding just four goals in ten games but scoring only 12. That was enough for second place and a resulting play-off against Romania, in which they won 4-2 on aggregate – three of those goals coming from Mitroglou.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
For Colombia, either Carlos Bacca or Jackson Martinez will partner Teofilo Gutierrez up front in Falcao's absence. They also have Fredy Guarin suspended for this first match. For Greece, Sokratis Papastathopoulos missed their last two friendlies with a muscle problem and remains a doubt – as does Mitroglou having only recently recovered from a knee injury.
