FT Russia 0 – 1 Greece

FT Russia 0 – 1 Greece

Russia have made one change from the side which drew 1-1 with Poland – Denis Glushakov comes in for Konstantin Zyryanov. Greece have made four changes from the defeat to Czech Republic.

At 45+2′, Zhirkov makes a huge mess of it and Karagounis nips in behind and rifles a shot under Malafeev. They weren’t even trying to score yet somehow they lead.

Incredible scenes as the Greece players celebrate and the rest of us wonder if we’re back in 2004. We’ve seen all this before, haven’t we? They defended so well in the second half once they had a lead to protect. The goal itself was bizarre – I still maintain that they were barely even trying to score, they were just eating up time to get to the interval at 1-0. But Karagounis got the goal – he should have had a penalty. He picked up a booking which means he’ll miss the last right match which would be his record appearance. Holebas also got booked at the end and he too will be suspended but is less of a loss. Congratulations to Greece.
