Colombia v Ivory Coast: Ivory Coast player ratings - Swansea man struggles in attack

Ivory Coast lost their 100% record in Brazil after losing 2-1 to Colombia in Brasilia.

Japan and Greece now have hope of catching Sabri Lamouchi's men in Group C, and here are the ratings for the Ivory Coast after their defeat to day...

Boubacar Barry 6 – looked shaky, and should've done better with Rodriguez's header having got a hand to it.

Serge Aurier 7 – not quite as good as he was against Japan, struggling positionally but did again put some dangerous crosses into the box.

Sol Bamba 6 – strong in the air but looked all at sea positionally, struggling to cope with the movement of the energetic Colombians.

Didier Zokora 6 – much like Bamba, Zokora had trouble dealing with the pace on the counter from Colombia, once again never really looking comfortable at centre back.

Arthur Boka 6 – got torn apart time and time again by the flying Juan Cuadrado, with the Fiorentina man's movement just too much too handle.

Geoffroy Serey Die 5 – it was a tough day for Serey Die, who reportedly had to deal with family bereavement just hours before kick off. The midfielder was unfortunately caught in possession for Quintero's goal, which proved to be the winner.

Cheick Tiote 6 – dominated the game against Japan but wasn't quite as influential, frustratingly taking ill advised shots to end attacks.

Yaya Toure 7 – was more than matched by Colombia's Carlos Sanchez, and whilst he got a couple of driving runs, he still wasn't at his best amidst injury concerns.

Gervinho 8 – the Roma man is capable of anything from the sublime to the ridiculous, and today it was the former. His stunning run and finish hauled Lamouchi's men back into the game and he was a threat from then on.

Wilfried Bony 6 – basically anonymous in attack, Bony posed little threat to the Colombian back line, failing to even connect with many of his shot attempts.

Max Gradel 6 – another player who simply didn't show up. Gradel was surprisingly given the nod ahead of Salomon Kalou, but he did little to justify his selection.


Didier Drogba 6 – didn't have the desired impact after changing the game against Japan, but the Colombia defence looked wary of his presence.

Salomon Kalou 6 – wasn't great against Japan but could still count himself unlucky not to start. However, he failed to really make an impact in his cameo role.

Mathis Bolly – N/A
