Quotes

"It was a very tough game, which at times reminded me of Argentina’s meeting with Côte d’Ivoire at Germany 2006. [Like in that game] we were winning 2-0 and they, thanks to long-distance shots, kept the result hanging in the balance right to the end." Jose Pekerman, Colombia coach

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.
