Ivory Coast came from two goals behind to beat 10-man Serbia & Montenegro.

Serbia were 2-0 up after 20 minutes, Nikola Zigic rounding Boubacar Barry for the first and Sasa Ilic punishing Cyril Domoraud's poor miscontrol.

Aruna Dindane then scored a twice-taken penalty before Albert Nadj was sent off at the end of the first-half.

Dindane's header made it 2-2, before Bonaventure Kalou scored a second penalty, though Ivory Coast ended up with 10 men after Domoraud's dismissal.

The win was Ivory Coast's first in the World Cup finals, delighting the 66,000 crowd at Munich's Allianz Arena.

It was also the first time a team had come back from two goals down to win a match in the competition since West Germany's 3-2 victory over England in 1970.
