Colombia 2 – Ivory Coast 1: The best Tweets on another great game at this World Cup
- June 19, 2014
We are really being spoilt here!
The World Cup threw up another brilliant game of football on Thursday as Colombia defeated Ivory Coast 2-1 in Brasilia.
After a goalless first half, the game came to life just after the hour as Colombia scored goals through James Rodriguez and Juan Quintero.
Ivory Coast pulled one back, a glorious solo effort from Gervinho and the final minutes were as frantic as you like.
Colombia take charge of Group C with two wins from two.
Ivory Coast will have to hold their nerve against Greece int he final game.
Perhaps they will start Didier Drogba from the start in their next match?
Juan Quintero (21 years and 152 days old) is the second youngest Colombian to score in a World Cup, after Leider Preciado (21-116)
