Germany favourites to defeat Greece

June 22, 2012


Without a shadow of doubt, Germany has been the best team in the European Champiosnhips so far. They have not lost a single match during the ongoing championship. The Germans are set to face Greece in their first knock out match of the competition. It is clearly understood, when Germany has been tagged as favourites for the match. The match, (second quarter-finals) is scheduled to take place tonight at Gdansk, Poland.

Germans have shown their class in the league stages defeating teams such Netherlands, Denmark and Portugal. They have looked a class apart. Their players namely, Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Gomez, Thomas Muller has all been playing consistently bringing laurels to the German football team. But, the Germans known for their game are not going to take their opponents, easily, as anything and everything can happen in Football.

Greece, on the other hand are aware of the task that lies ahead . They are not going to go down without a fight. They may not have any class players in their ranks, but their team spirit and unity is something, which has always helped them perform on the pitch. They also won the 2004 European Championships. F. Santos, their coach compares this game to a David Vs Goliath match. Everyone knows who is the David and Goliath in this case.

If the Greeks somehow manage to defeat the Germans, it is going to be the biggest upset of the tournament. But, looking at the way the Germans have been playing , it requires a humongous effort to knock them out of the competition.
