Colombia's World Cup campaign got off to a roaring start thanks to a thorough 3-0 dismantling of Greece in their Group C opener.

Pablo Armero gave Colombia an early lead with a strike in the fifth minute. 

Juan Cuadrado did fine work on the right wing, hitting a low cross that fell to Armero, who fired past Orestis Karnezis.

Teo Gutierrez doubled Colombia's lead in the 55th minute and put the Tricolour in a commanding spot when scoring from point-blank range off of a corner kick. 

The ball trickled through a bevy of players before falling at the boot of Teo, who simply had to tap in.
