Totally nail-biting final...

Greece had the defence completely locked down... Portugal didn't really get a look-in.

What an achivement for both teams though!

I watched the first half at ta BBQ party then traveled home during the 2nd half.. Obviously I missed some good stuff! I look forward to seing some highlights!

Lots of Greek flags on cars today! It was very noisy round here last night!

greece play more boring than norway,

norway per definition is the most defensive team ever..until greece came along.Russia won against greece..because they like greece are defensive.

everytime greece played i just turned of the t.v after 15 minutes,
too boring.

too bad, they won against every team...ok russland not...but they were already qualifyed at that time...

even tschech which had the best team in my opinion had no chance against Greece... maybe holland would have...but maybe maybe... GREECE IS THE WINNER...

hate the game dont hate the player...

sorry but after the greece victory,the norwegian coach said " we can learn something from greece" all mediocre teams can play like greece and by wc 2006,you'll see teams standing on their own field,shooting the ball forward ,the so called " flo-pass",back and forth,just waiting for the other team to create a glitch.

Anti-football is not football.

England and chzech should have prevailed,tho ironically Englands defeat and disastre was created by playing defensive,after scoring goals against france and portogal,thanks to the svennis.

They won't all play like Greece - imagine France or Brazil trying to adapt that policy... And even if they did they wouldn't win. Look at the Italians they've been doing this for years and haven't had a proper result since 1982 (apart from 1994 where they didn't play like that).

The Greek result is a freak of nature - one of those things that happen very rarely. Apart from Denmark's victory in 1992 (yes, I HAD to mention that...) which btw was also a complete fluke, it's generally the 'old', 'big' teams that win these things...

If Euro 2004 has shown anything it is that negative football isn't a succes. (unless you fluke it and win the Championship obviously - and best of luck to Greece - they won because the didn't get beat... everyone else did). But generally: All the teams that made it to the quarterfinals (apart from the winners) were basically teams that enjoyed going forwards in numbers...

Now will someone please tell Patrick Viera that him and Zidane on the same team take up to much of the same space (France) and that he should really, really, REALLY stay at Arsenal..????

The Greeks didn't invent the game ...(we had to leave some room for other cultures to invent stuff...heh heh )...the style they played was 100% German...boring or not its part of the game.

Yes portugal and the Chech republic as well as other teams entertained the crowd more...but it wasn't about entertainment...thats how they play...especially when they underestimate their opponent...Greece's biggest weapon was the fact that no one took us seriously...

Do you think the other teams would rather be entertaining or win the title and be called boring...I think you know the answer...
