Group C – Colombia and Cote d’Ivoire Lead The Way

In Group C, Colombia and Cote d’Ivoire lead the way after Greece slip up and Honda’s spark was not enough for Japan to extend on their early lead.

Colombia were playing without the injured Falcao and Cote d’Ivoire started with Didier Drogba on the bench.

The South Americans didn’t need their talisman but Ivory Coast only came to life when Drogba was introduced. He may not have scored a goal but his presence on the pitch must have had an effect.

Next up the two winners meet in Brasilia on Thursday and the two losers get another chance to get their 2014 World Cup campaign off to a winning start in Natal; a midnight kick-off for viewers in Europe.
