Finally, James Rodriguez gets his goal in 90+2 mins added , Danger man Cuadrado thunders through the Greek midfield, it falls for J-Rod, who finishes with a quite sumptuous right-foot strike. Best goal of the game by a mile.

58 mins COLOMBIA scored their third after a poor corner from James Rodriguez is converted after great work from Aguilar. Gutierrez, who was picked ahead of two other fancied strikers.

71 mins Over halfway through the second half and Greece were looking for a way back. Mitroglou has a shot at goal. His presence giving Greece’s midfielders something to target in the box. The Colombians were not really bothered to keep jeering anymore, and bust out some ‘ole’s’ for good measure. 

It was a crushing blow to Greek morale, and they must have sensed that it was not to be their day when Theofanis Gekas chalked up one of the misses of the tournament thus far, heading against the crossbar when it appeared easier to score.

 Sure enough, their agony was compounded in injury time when the lively Rodriguez prodded low into the bottom corner from 16 yards to spark yet more Colombian ecstasy.

Greece must now look to make up lost ground in their next match against Japan, who face Côte d’Ivoire later this evening in Recife.
