Gervinho Rumbles And Stomps Through Colombia's Defense And Scores

After two Colombian goals from James Rodríguez and Juan Quintero looked to put to bed what had been a pretty tight match, Gervinho remembered that he's Gervinho and can tear his way to the goal and score at will. Ivory Coast were back in it! For a few minutes.

Starting from the left wing, the Roma forward chopped his way past his two markers, cut the ball back in front of a third defender, who subsequently fell on his ass, then beat the keeper near post before a fourth could close him down. Not quite Messi, but only by a hair.
