Group C Kicks Off with Columbia vs GreecePublished June 14, 2014 by OCR Editor
World Cup Fever is rising: don't miss out this evening at 6:00pm UK time.
Columbia and Greece have surprisingly only met once before and the South American side put two goals in the back of the net while shutting out Greece. That would be the same kind of outcome Columbia will want in the Group C opener but Greece has a lot of weapons in their arsenal and will be using them all.
It's Day 3 of the 2014 World Cup and the action so far has been remarkable. From the opener between Brazil & Croatia to the Day 2 matches between Mexico & Cameroon and Spain vs Netherlands it has been an action packed couple of days and we are just getting started.
The Group C opener could be as one-sided as predicted with Columbia crushing Greece after 90 minutes but crazier things have happened. Columbia go into today's game after drawing with Senegal 2-2 and beating Jordan 3-0 in the previous week. Greece on the other hand were shut out a couple weeks ago by Portugal before beating Bolivia 2-1 last week.
From the completely renovated Estadio Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Columbia should have a big fan base therein. Both teams will be playing their hearts out as a win in the first game means an easier time getting to the knockout stages.
Columbia drawing a Group C bid was like music to their ears as they are the outright favorites to finish in 1st place over Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan. Even without their star striker Radamel Falcao who still hasn't fully recovered from knee surgery the team is fired up and ready to show they are true threats to win.
Greece are a tough team to beat as history demonstrates and don't be surprised if they surprise the Colombians with tough play and fast soccer.
