Match report: Georgios Samaras’ penalty puts the Greeks through to last-16
Absolutely astonishing scenes in Fortaleza – a 90th minute Georgios Samaras penalty has sent Greece through to the last-16 of this World Cup against all odds as Ivory Coast ended their campaign crestfallen.
It had looked for all the world that Didier Drogba, Yaya Toure and co were heading to the knockout stages when Wilfried Bony cancelled out Andreas Samaris’ first half opener.
But Samaras was felled in the box by substitute Giovanni Sio in stoppage time and coolly slotted home.

…and SCORES!!!!! GREEKS ARE THROUGH!
Cool as you like. Barry guessed correctly to his left but there was too much weight behind that.
