Match of the Day Live: MOTD: Greece v Ivory Coast

About this programme

Greece v Ivory Coast (Kick-off 9.00pm). All the action from both teams' final World Cup Group C encounter, held at the Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza. This is the first time Greece and Ivory Coast have met and it could prove to be an interesting clash of styles, with the Greeks known for their defensive resilience, which was demonstrated when they held Japan to a goalless draw despite having 10 men since the 38th minute, while the Ivorians contain a number of impressive attacking players in their ranks, including Manchester City star Yaya Toure, Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony and former Chelsea hero Didier Drogba. A win would be enough for Ivory Coast to progress regardless of the result of the contest between Colombia and Japan, while Greece need to win and hope the other match goes in their favour.
