Colombia have the encounter 2-1. The match was going nowhere slowly until James Rodriguez put Colombia in front. From then on it was goals galore!

Ivory Coast had 55% possession. 

Ivory Coast had 11 shots compared to Colombia's 8 but it's the ball into the back of the net is what counts.

And for those interested in discipline, there were 5 slices of cheese(yellow cards) per team.  

Colombia go top of Group C while Ivory Coast will hope Japan and Greece play out to a draw later tonight.

93' Only a minute left...
19 Jun 19:53

92' YEPES makes a huge blunder, keeper beats Drogba to the ball.

Almost tear-city for Yepes in his 100th game.

19 Jun 19:52
Nasty scenes here. Webb doing nothing to get this match under control.
19 Jun 19:51

4 minutes of added time is all that is left.

Is the drama done?

88' OH MY GOSH! Quintero tries to lob the keeper from 40 yards!
19 Jun 19:46

84' Bolly to Gervinho to Kalou. Squanders a goal chance.

You could almost hear the groans from the Ivory Coast fans.

19 Jun 19:45

84' STAT ATTACK

Bolly from Ivory Coast, runs the 50metres faster than Bolt.

Speedy.

19 Jun 19:44

83' Another shot goes over the bar for Ivory Coast.

More pressure than a 9am deadline here for Colombia.

19 Jun 19:43
82' Can Ivory Coast come back from 2 zip to rescue a draw?
19 Jun 19:42

19 Jun 19:37
76' Slice of cheese for Yaya. Bad tackle and he's into the ref's bad book!
19 Jun 19:36
75' Remember when I said Ivory Coast were done? Scrap that! This match is not over!

JAMES RODRIGUEZ!!!!!!

19 Jun 19:23
62' Colombia going for it now. Looking much the better side.
19 Jun 19:21

59' DROGBA is on! Bony off. Paying the price for his mishit a minute or two ago?

Hard to believe that Drogba doesn't start for the Elephants.

19 Jun 19:20
58' Shot fired in by Cuadrado. Across the face of the goal and it hits the cross bar!
19 Jun 19:18
57' Gradel had space inside the box. Poor touch costs him a clear shot. Yepes across to defend it well.
