Whilst the scoreline is probably a reasonable reflection of the disparity in quality between the two teams, it is not a good reflection of the way the game played out.
Greece had 52 percent of the possession, managed an 83 percent pass completion rate, and an impressive 61 percent tackle completion rate.
However, Greece's defending was culpable in all three of Colombia's goals.
For the first, Kostas Manolas' unfortunate mishit attempted clearance trickled in.
For the second, Georgios Samaras was still arguing with the linesman when Colombia were given a decision, leading to a lack of organisation in the Greek box. From the resultant corner, Colombia extended their lead and effectively extinguished hopes of a Greece come-back.
The third goal saw Greece switch off, as Colombia took a quick free-kick with disastrous consequences.
For a side so reliant on its defence, these mistakes were crucial.
