Colombia's players in their fantastic yellow home kits had plenty of reason to dance as they sealed a Round of 16 spot with a 2-1 win against Côte d'Ivoire, who wore their subtly patterned green away kits. A quickfire pair of goals from James Rodriguez and Juan Quintero sealed the win but there would still be some nervy moments, especially after Gervinho's individual moment of brilliance to pull one back.

His return to the team was an impressive one as the Liverpool forward scored the game's opening goal and the match winner at the death. He did it all in a pair of adidas Battle Pack F50 adizero boots that worked really well with Uruguay's kits.

Japan's Yasuhito Endo entered at the half for his country wearing a boot that you likely have not seen before.
