Group C of the World Cup gets underway this evening, as Colombia take on Greece in Belo Horizonte.

The tournament has got off to a roaring start over the first four fixtures, and fans will be hoping to see more open, attractive football as dark horses Colombia look to put the absence of Falcao behind them to notch their first win.

Jose Pekerman's side have been tipped as a dark horse for the competition, and whilst Falcao's injury is a huge blow to their chances of having a deep run into the tournament, they have a number of big name players who have starred in Europe this season, including Juan Cuadrado and James Rodriguez.

Meanwhile, Greece are once again looking to prove the doubters wrong, ten years on from when they won Euro 2004 against all odds. Manager Fernando Santos has kept the pragmatic approach for the Greeks, and it appears that they will once again look to keep it tight at the back in order to squeeze out a result.

Colombia will be favourites to win the match, but without Falcao and against a tough Greek defence, they could struggle to break through at times.
