Traianos Dellas to miss Portugal friendly

Greece has traveled to Germany for a friendly match against Portugal in Dusseldorf tonight without key central defender Traianos Dellas. Coach Otto Rehhagel has not called up a replacement for Dellas on the experienced squad he has chosen following experiments in recent friendlies against the Czech Republic and Finland. OFI goalkeeper Alexis Tsorvas, an impressive performer this season, is the only new face on the Greek squad. Rehhagel is expected to decide later this week whether he will remain with Greece for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. His current contract ends after Euro 2008.
