9 Pivotal Factors That Will Decide FIFA World Cup 2014 Group C

There’s not a lot to separate the four sides that were drawn into Group C of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Colombia, seeded into the bracket as the fifth-ranked team in the world, can be considered slight favourites, although they’ve only been to the round of 16 once in their history and haven’t even participated in this tournament since 1998.

Greece, meanwhile, have done little on the international stage since winning Euro 2004 and crashed out at the first hurdle four years ago in South Africa.

Then, there are Ivory Coast and Japan: one, a golden generation of players still looking for that elusive piece of silverware and the other, a continental heavyweight that, like every other side in the group, has never been beyond the last 16.

No doubt progression will be decided by the slimmest of margins, and over the next nine slides, we’ll highlight the pivotal factors that will decide the fate of Group C.
