Greece on way to Euro 2012

Just in case anyone missed it or is interested, above are the highlights and goals from last night’s match in Tiblisi between Georgia and Greece, the last in Greece’s qualifying campaign for Euro 2012.

Greece, who only needed a draw to win their qualifying group ahead of Croatia, went down early, but came back in the last 11 minutes with goals from Georgios Photakis and Angelos Charisteas to win 2-1 and book their ticket to next year’s finals in Poland and Ukraine.

It’s the third time in a row Greece has qualified for the European Championships, an impressive achievement. Nevertheless, I’m not that convinced by our team, they’re still stolid, but it’s hard to argue with results, the fact that since Fernando Santos took over from Otto Rehhagel, the boys have gone on an unbeaten 15-match streak.

Charisteas is still on the team?

I am curious ... how will the team be travelling to the sporting venues, by foot? I am just saying since Greece is technically bankrupt :-)
