Greece 2, Ivory Coast 1: Greece advances on a stoppage time penalty

Greece's draw against Japan in the second round of fixtures was enough to keep them alive, and they can potentially advance from Group C of the World Cup with a win over the Ivory Coast. The Ivorians could potentially go through with a draw, if Japan can't defeat Colombia or make up the difference to Les Elephants on goals scored, while Greece definitely need a victory.

The Ivory Coast were rocked by bad news earlier in the week, as Yaya and Kolo Toure learned that their brother had lost his lengthy battle with cancer. They are expected to start despite this.

Because of the Greeks' reputation for sitting back and not doing much in the way of attacking, it's possible that Yaya is moved back from his normal attacking midfield slot to a central midfield role to accommodate an extra attacker. Greece, meanwhile, will be without captain Konstantinos Katsouranis, and will likely start fellow veteran Giorgios Karagounis in his place.
