  • GREECE GO AHEAD! The visitors take a merited lead before the break, as Limnios raids down the right side of the area on the counter; cutting back for his captain Bakasetas on the edge of the box. The latter guides the ball into the bottom-left corner with a well-placed strike, and Greece go 1-0 up in Belfast!
