Greece 2-1 Ivory Coast (FT)

Greece left it until the last possible instant to clinch their place in the round of 16, with a stoppage-time penalty to beat Ivory Coast.

Andreas Samaris scored the opener near the end of the first half, before Wilfried Bony equalised for Ivory Coast after the break.

Greece hit the woodwork three times and looked the more dangerous on the counter, while Ivory Coast spurned at least two good chances to finish the game off.

That cost them hugely in the 92nd minute as Giovanni Sio conceded a penalty and Georgios Samaras converted it to send Greece through.
