Greece vs Côte d'Ivoire World Cup 2014 player ratings: Yaya Toure or Giorgios Samaras - who rated higher?
Player ratings from the Group C clash
Wednesday 25 June 2014
Former Celtic striker Georgios Samaras struck an injury-time penalty as Greece snatched a place in the World Cup last-16 with a dramatic 2-1 win over Ivory Coast.
The African side had looked to be going through to the knockout stages as Group C runners-up after Swansea's Wilfried Bony cancelled out Andreas Samaris' first-half strike in the 74th minute in Fortaleza.
But Greece, who hit the woodwork three times, showed considerable improvement on their earlier performances in the tournament and grabbed victory after Samaras - recently released by Celtic - was felled late on.
It was no less than the Greeks deserved for an enterprising performance after a slow start.
Who do you think should have been man of the match? Let us know in the comments below.
