    Colombia vs Greece

    Greece have lost five of their six World Cup games, winning the other one against Nigeria (2-1) on 17 June 2010.

    With 83.3% of defeats at the World Cup, Greece have the second worst ratio in the history of the tournament among teams having played at least six games behind El Salvador (100%).

    Since 1966, Colombia have averaged the highest possession (58%), the most ball touches per game (794) and the best pass success rate (85% - min. 10 games) at the World Cup.

    Greece have failed to score in five of their six games at the World Cup, scoring only against Nigeria (2-1) in 2010 with goals by Dimitris Salpingidis and Vasilis Torosidis.

    Portuguese coach Fernando Santos has only lost three of his 26 competitive games as Greece supremo (W17 D6).

    Colombia had more shots on target than any other team in South American World Cup qualification (99).

    Greece kept more clean sheets than any other European team in World Cup qualifying (eight).

    Colombia's 2-0 friendly victory over Greece ahead of the 1994 World Cup is the only previous meeting between the two nations.
