Key Players

Bryan Ruiz - The Fulham playmaker may have struggled this season but he's been on top form in the World Cup, scoring the solitary goal in the win over Italy and can unlock what is a strong Greek defence.

Giorgos Samaras - The emphasis with Greece is so much on defence, but the Celtic man held his nerve when cooly slotting away the injury time penalty that sent Greece into the second round.
