Colombia is the favorite to win the group, but to do so they need to beat Greece; the teams with fewer chances to advance according to soccer odds.  They are joined by Ivory Coast and Japan.

Coach José Perkerman won’t have striker Radamel Falcao; the best striker from last season after he suffered a knee injury on February and was unable to get back in shape.

‘I had lots of hopes but, well, we’ve got to press on and support the team from the outside and wish all my team mates the best for a good World Cup. Today, I’m in very good shape but conscious that I still need a bit (more time) to play again and I didn’t want to deny a place to a team mate who was 100 per cent fit, nor do something imprudent to damage my health,’ Falcao said in a press conference.

The Greeks has their best moment in soccer in 2004 when against all odds won the Europeans champions in Portugal; since then they haven’t done much.  In fact, in the World Cup they don’t have a great mark with just one win, recorded in 2010 against Nigeria, and five losses.

The World Cup odds have Colombia listed -118, and Greece +500 to win their first presentation in the tournament; the draw is at +250.
