Thank you for following along with us as we witnessed an incredible second half from the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia. The fun is just starting, though, as Matchday 8 now heads to Sao Paulo where Uruguay and England kick off at 4.00pm local Brazil time in a decisive Group D clash.
LOS CAFETEROS NEAR KNOCKOUT STAGE
Colombia are taking a walk around the pitch, applauding their exceptional support throughout the stands, everyone soaking in this moment of elation for the South Americans while Côte d'Ivoire head back into the dressing room with work still to be done in their final Group Stage match to find a way into the Round of 16.

FULL TIME: The Estadio Nacional erupts at the full-time whistle and Colombia are enthusiastically celebrating on the pitch. What a game that was! Côte d'Ivoire can't believe it and the sea of canary yellow in the crowd are ecstatic. The win puts Colombia in great shape in Group C with six points, and depending on the outcome of the group's other match today (Japan-Greece), Los Cafeteros could secure a trip to the Round of 16.
Colombia have never won more than one match per World Cup edition.
