Greece's Kostas Katsouranis is suspended after his sending-off against Japan for today's World Cup Group C clash against Ivory Coast in Fortaleza.

As a result, he is replaced by fellow veteran Georgios Karagounis in a game that the Greeks must win to have any chance of reaching the last 16.

Meanwhile, Ivory Coast are without Didier Zokora, who serves a one-game ban after getting two bookings in the first two games of the competition.

His absence means that Kolo Toure is recalled, while captain and record goalscorer Didier Drogba also starts.

Didier Ya Konan, who missed the defeat by Colombia because of a knee injury, isn't risked in the Elephants' starting XI this evening.

Greece: Karnezis, Torosidis, Holebas, Maniatis, Papastathopoulos, Manolas, Christodoulopoulos, Karagounis, Salpingidis, Kone, Samaras

Ivory Coast: Barry, Aurier, Boka, Tiote, K Toure, Bamba, Kalou, Gonzaroua Die, Drogba, Y Toure, Gervinho
