General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +4 Greece have the ball down in the corner of the opposite end of the pitch and will hope to see the remainder of the game out down there.
A ball for Grozav at the back post is headed away by Vyntra and Romania fail to make anything of the corner with the final act of the game. GREECE ARE GOING TO BRAZIL!
90' +2 A wayward ball from deep bounces straight through to Karnezis and the home fans all let out a whistle.
90' +1 We are into the first of an additional four minutes. Not long for Greece to hold on now.
89' A. Tziolis gets yellow.
Tziolis goes to ground after a late challenge form Grozav and he stays down on the deck for as long as possible. He eventually earns a booking for wasting too much time.
87' G. Grozav enters the game and replaces B. Stancu.
Greece seem incapable of holding onto the ball now, and they are just handing it back to Romania almost immediately after winning it. Maxim looks to beat Holebas on the far side but the left-back makes a good challenge and even earns a goal kick for his team.
86' Victor Piturca makes his final change, replacing the ineffectual Stancu with Grozav. Can he help inspire a dramatic late comeback?
84' Woeful from Niculae! The forward receives the ball on his right foot on the near side of the box. He shapes to bend an effort back across goal and into the top corner, but instead he rolls a tame effort into the hands of Karnezis.
82' Vyntra almost joins Torosidis in the bizarre own goals club as his skyward effort has Karnezis backpedalling. The keeper breathes a sigh of relief, though, as the ball drops on the roof of the net.
81' Maxim has been much livelier this half and is causing Greece problems with his technically-brilliant dribbling. However, as of yet he has been unable to create a meaningful chance for his team.
80' K. Manolas enters the game and replaces D. Siovas.
