Kick-off 5.00pm local (9.00pm BST) Greece progessed into the last 16 of the World Cup for the first time in their history after beating Ivory Coast 2-1. In a true Greek drama, Georgios Samaras converted a controversial injury-time penalty to seal the win after he was adjudged to have been fouled by Giovanni Sio. Ivory Coast would have taken their place in the knockout stages with a draw. Wilfried Bony's goal had earlier sparked wild celebrations only for their joy to turn to utter despair.
