  1. Greece did the best they could've done against a world-class German team. Alllowing 4 goals against a German team that, in WC 2010, scored 4 goals, respectively, against Australia, and world-class teams England and Argentina, is nothing to be ashamed of. Those teams combined managed to score 1 goal which leads to the next point below. Greece managed to be efficient on there very few scoring chances and scored 2 goals, which is the best that any team has done against Germany in Euro 2012 so far. It became interesting, for all of 6 minutes, when Samaras tied it at 1-1 early in the second half
  2. Interesting stat: The last four Euro Champions (Germany, France, Greece, Spain) were in a division that consisted of the Russian NT, be it the Qualifying Stage (France in Euro 2000), or the Group Stage (Germany Euro 1996, Greece Euro 2004, Spain Euro 2008). Based on this, the Euro Champion of 2012 will be either the Czech Republic or Greece :tup:
  3. Listen to Helakis go crazy Even better, you can watch and listen http://www.sport-fm.gr/videos/1024779
  4. (goal.com) Sit up and take notice, the Greeks are contenders Fernando Santos, the Greece coach, has presided over 16 matches without a single defeat - a national record. The 2004 European champions are about to embark on their third consecutive appearance at the finals and they sit just outside the top 10 in the current Fifa World Ranking. Although the Greek Super League, with its financial issues and explosive match fixing investigations, among other issues, has never seen its profile drop so far, the national team is single-handedly keeping the reputation of Greek football buoyant. T
  5. Croatian coach (Bilic) said Greece cant score 2 goals and one of their players (Modric) said Croatia is a better team. Well, this Croatian team couldn't score in either match. Greece's first big home win against a name team in 5 years... Page 6 Equality of points after the group matches: 7.04 If two or more teams are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied, in the order given, to determine the rankings: 1) higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question; 2) superior goal difference from the group m
  6. Why do so many people think this is a "mickey mouse" group? Our group is the only one that has 2 teams that qualified for WC 2010 (Greece and Slovakia) while a 3rd team (Bosnia) made the playoffs.
  7. Congratulations to Turkey on reaching 2nd place and winning a silver medal. Turkey played well and coach Tanjevic was outstanding. Not to throw cold water on their achievement but Turkey, in the future, has to prove that they can win a medal and/or reach a semifinal of a major tournament (Olympics, Eurobasket, FIBA world cup) without being the host nation. They won a silver medal in both Eurobasket 2001 and FIBA world cup 2010 where they were the host nation but never won a medal as a non-host nor reached the semifinal as a non-host. The Meditteranean Games basketball tournament is not a maj
  8. Gekas and Tzorvas are considering retirement http://contra.gr/Soccer/Europe/Euro/Euro20...ece/287691.html
  9. This game is very important for both teams. Whoever finishes in first place, which can also be Russia as well, can avoid playing USA/Spain up until the medal round. Whoever finishes in second place will, for sure, play against USA in quarterfinals. Whoever finishes in third place has a legitimate shot playing against Spain in the second round. The president of the Basketball Federation of Puerto Rico wants an investigation done on referee Carl Jungerbrand of Finland who also refereed the Russia-Puerto Rico match Coach comments (contra.gr):
  10. Contra.gr says he's flying to Italy to sign for AC Milan....
  11. The era 2004-2010 is Greece's "golden period" with Otto at the helm. We all know what Greece was like before 2004. If Greece does not succeed for a long time, then we will appreciate Otto more. Greece is playing a friendly against Serbia in Belgrade on August 11. Will a new coach be named until then?
  12. (From ESPN.com) Posted by ESPN Stats & Information • Suspect Argentina defense: Going forward Argentina look like world-beaters, but the defense remains error-prone and with only three on the backline, pretty stretched at times. Walter Samuel was injured in the South Korea game and is in doubt for this game. • Lionel Messi, the reigning FIFA World Player of the Year, has done everything but score in the Argentina's first two games. Looks to get his first goal at the finals against Greece. He celebrates his 23rd birthday on June 24. • Gonzalo Higuain: Scored a hat trick against Sout
  13. Ghana-Australia match ends in a 1-1 draw. Australia played with 10 players from the 24th minute and were the better team in the last 30 minutes while Ghana was unable to score one goal. Yet, Greece scores 2 goals against 10-man Nigeria and the media makes it out as if Nigeria gave the victory to Greece on a silver platter after the red card.
