World Cup 2014: Colombia Defeats Ivory Coast, 2-1

“Colombia came out on top in a rollicking game in Brasilia on Thursday, defeating Ivory Coast, 2-1, and almost certainly clinching a spot in the next round. The first half was played at a lightning-fast pace but remained scoreless as both sides’ strikers struggled. Colombia was first to break through in the 64th minute, as James Rodriguez jumped highest after a Juan Cuadrado corner and headed the ball into the net. Six minutes later they were up 2-0 after a Serey Die giveaway led to an easy goal for Juan Quintero.” NY Times
