greece WATCH Greece 2 1 Ivory Coast Match Highlights [VIDEO]; Greeks Advance to Round of 16

What an ending to the match between Greece and Ivory Coast!

Greece defeated Ivory Coast in the last few minutes of the match to advance to the Round of 16 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The winning goal came in controversial circumstances after Greece won a soft penalty when Georgios Samaras was allegedly fouled in the penalty area. With so much pressure on his shoulders, Samaras walked up and nailed his penalty kick into the back of the net to give Greece a shock 2-1 victory. If the scoreline had stayed at 1-1, Ivory Coast would have advanced instead.
