FIFA World Cup 2014: Colombia vs Greece Fifth Match in Pictures

Colombia kicked off their World Cup campaign with a 3-0 victory over Greece in Belo Horizonte. It was a strange game in which Greece saw much of the possession and regularly looked untroubled by the victors, though Fernando Santos' outfit flattered to deceive and were twice made to pay for their eternal attacking impotence.

Colombia's forward Teofilo Gutierrez celebrates after scoring during a Group C football match between Colombia and Greece at the Mineirao Arena in Belo Horizonte.
