It's an incredibly dramatic finish in the Estadio Castelao, and there'll certainly be reaction to come in our daily tournament blog. The Greeks reach the World Cup knockout stages for the first time, and there will be a new face in the quarter-finals too - neither they or their Round of 16 opponents Costa Rica have made it to the final eight. It's heartbreak for the Ivorians, who were seconds away from reaching the knockout stages themselves before Samaras' late strike.

FULL TIME: It's all over and Greece head through after a dramatic finale in Fortaleza. Santos's side led for half an hour after sub Samaris put the Ethniki ahead just before half time. Another substitute Bony levelled things up before Samaras's late, late winner. They will meet Costa Rica in the Round of 16 on Sunday.
The Celtic forward sidefoots the ball to the diving Barry's left-hand side. The keeper guesses the right way, but he can't keep it out.
PENALTY! The ball is cut back by Lazaros and Samaras goes down in the Ivorian area. The referee points to the spot!
