New York Daily News:
Greece, unexpected champions in 2004, dream of repeating the miracle in the upcoming Euro 2012, but the lack of attacking power makes that less possible.
Greece finished first in Group F of the Euro 2012 qualifications, collecting the fewest goals (14) in 10 matches of any group winner, Xinhua reports. They tied Denmark for the worst goal difference of nine.
However, Greece, 14th on FIFA rankings, have lost just one of 18 matches since the 2010 World Cup. Their defence is quite solid.
Known as the "Greek Rock", Kyriakos Papadopoulos, the 20-year-old FC Schalke defender plays a key part in the defence. He has been scouted by some of Europe's top clubs, and is known for his great positioning and tackling capabilities.
Head coach Fernando Santos, a 57-year-old rational and conservative Portuguese, prefers to deploy a well-organised 4-3-3 formation and the basic strategy is to keep it tight at the back, staying patient and waiting for the opponents to make mistakes.
