World Cup 2014
Day 3
Columbia 3 Greece 0
Columbian fans well outnumbered those from Greece
a brave header
Columbia took an early lead with a goal from Amero after just 5 minutes
the shot from Amero came off defender Manolas
Fans and players were ecstatic
good save
Greek fans have a message!
Samaras ( remember him) says it was not a pen!
On 58 minutes Gutierrez scores from close range
musician Gutierrez makes it two nil to Columbia - they are not missing the injured Falcao
time for celebration
The impressive James Rodriguez who plays for Monaco makes it three in the last minute - game over
Uruguay 1 Costa Rica 3
As expected there were a lot of Uruguay fans at the Estadio Castelao in Fotaleza
The fans from Costa Rica enjoy the atmosphere and capture the moment
After 21 minutes Lugano is brought down by Diaz
The Costa Rica players had a moan about the award which was taken by once City target Carvani
The ball swept past the hands of Navas ( not the City one) and Uruguay were one up
their fans celebrated
problems for the Uruguay keeper
Just before half time Navas made a great save from Forlan
On 53 minutes Joel Campbell equalized for Costa Rica but i could not spot Paulo Wanchope in the crowd!
A few minutes later and a great brave header by Duarte gave Costa Rica the lead
unbelievable - we're ahead they cried
the keeper helps with cramp and a fan feels the pain!
a minute or so before the end Urena made the game safe for Costa Rica - another surprise result
There was delight for the Costa Rican supporters but there was the forlorn face of Suarez on the bench
In added time a really stupid kick by Pereira earned him a red card
England 1 Italy 2
Its pretty warm and humid at the Arena Amazonia at Manaus
The teams
an early shot by Sterling goes just wide
The referee has a chat to Rossi
Italy take the lead on 34 minutes. A shot by Marchisio from outside the penalty area following a corner
a shock lead - doubt whether Hart saw the ball as it went past several players
The Italian fans celebrate
a minute or so later Rooney dashes down the wing ....
....and his cross is met first time by Sturridge - one all - brilliant
a good goal and well deserved
England had a lucky escape when a shot from Balotelli was headed off the line by Jagielka
Candreva hits the post
Sterling's pace gave the Italians problems
Five minutes after the break Balotelli scored with a header from a cross by Candreva- oh dear
on 61 minutes Rooney missed a very good chance and look at the bench!
I am afraid the England fans look a bit flat
the Italian supporters and Balotelli have the last word!
Ivory Coast 2 Japan 1
Bony scores to make it one all
Their fans enjoy the win
A wet day for the fans
Honda gives Japan the lead
Player and fans celebrate
A yaya Toure free kick goes wide -perhaps he was put off by this in the grass!
Gervinho scores number two for Ivory Coast
