You have USA to beat Belgium in the round of 16.. but you believe that Belgium will be in the final?

The most interesting player from is Greece is their LB what says much..

You might not like them but you have gotta hand it to Greece, they never ever give in.

First against the Ivory Coast and now this gotta admire there fighting spirit and on the balance of the game I think a draw is fair at this stage.

Big favourites now.

Costa Rica :(

Don't mind who wins this one' date=' but it would be nice for Costa Rica to do so.[/quote']

It would be so nice for Greece with all their anti football and lack of attacking play to win. Euro 2004 all over again :P

Ain't the bloke who scored the equaliser the same bloke who 100' date='000 Greeks signed a online forum for to never start for Greece again....

That's Karma :)[/quote']

nopes, the petition guy is Katsouranis, the guy who scored is Papastathopulous

PS. Does anyone actually know WHY Katsouranis is so hated by their own fans? (not exactly a greek football follower)

Costa Rica's only hope is to hold on for penalties. For the goal there was more Greeks in the box then Costa Ricans, the Costa Ricans have just run out of steam (particularly Joel Campbell) and without any more substitutes this is the Greeks to loose.

I know they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I do enjoy watching Greece play. As organised as it gets.

Papastathopoulos was the scorer and Katsouranis was the subject of the petition.

I'm rooting for my fellow Europeans :P

Fair enough, I'm usually up for the Europeans too, but it'd be good to see Costa Rica progress. As it would be to see Greece in the QF too, but on the other hand, we enjoyed a shock that they produced not so long ago ;)

Ah right thought I heard the commentator say it was him, my bad.

Dunno why they hate him he was part of the Euro 2004 winning squad you would have thought he would be idolised forever after that unlikely triumph.

pens or nothing for Costa Rica they looked shattered if Greece go for it I fancy they will get another.

More of the same and its not so much of a shock anymore. Let's be fair, with all their dull football over the last decade Greece have been far more effective than England :P

Haha, is that a hard accomplishment for most nations to achieve though? :P

No I agree, if a certain style of play works for you then sod it, it works! The people complaining about it being boring aren't the ones trying to win the game. I've always thought the same with parking the bus, but let's not go there as it's something that's been discussed to death.
