IT’S BEEN A disappointing early kick-off so far in Group C with Colombia narrowly leading Greece.

West Ham’s Pablo Armero popped up with the opener on 5 minutes, forcing it home from close-range with the aid of a deflection.

The celebration will get all the headlines, quite rightly.

Greece have had plenty of the ball and went close to an equaliser in first-half injury time. But they’ll need to take some more risks if they’re to get something from this.

Their stats look quite impressive but Colombia look dangerous on the break.
