I now predict that Greece will win the World Cup. Not really. Tyche explains a lot in life, and was certainly at work in today's match. We looked all set for another terrible display and humiliating exit from the tournament when, first, the goddess possessed Sani Kaita to kick out at Torosidis and get sent off, then she inspired Salpingidis' shot to wickedly deflect off the Nigerian defender and into the net, before she went for Taiwo's groin, Echiejile's hamstring and the hands of the Nigerian keeper, who fumbled an easy Tziolis' effort for Torosidis to score the winner.
Obviously, for Greece to do well, the other team needs to be handicapped, but I can't see our good fortune extending to the game against Argentina, even if Argentina's prowess going forward is matched by their ineptitude at the back.
