Greeks still fancy their chances

LEGIONOWO – Greece players are relishing the role of underdog against Russia in their final group game at Euro 2012 and believe they can pull off an upset on Saturday.

Bottom of Group A after a draw with Poland and a defeat by the Czech Republic, Greece now has to beat group leader Russia to qualify.

Striker Costas Mitroglou says Greece should exploit its underdog status, while teammate Jose Holebas describes Russia as a «superteam» that would be difficult to dominate.

But 19-year-old midfielder Costas Fortounis says that the 2004 European champions have a «very good» chance of advancing.
