World Cup 2010: Greece

World Cup 2010: GREECE

FIFA ranking: 11

Overall World Cup record: 0-3-0

Coach: Otto Rehhagel


Best performance: First round, 1994

Overview: Would-be ticket-buyers beware, the Greeks will be tough to beat but boring to watch. It was a blanket defense that Rehhagel used to win Euro 2004 and not much has changed in the interim. Oddly enough, Greece produced the top goal scorer in World Cup qualifying in striker Theofanis Gekas, but Gekas will find that Argentina and South Korea are a bit more difficult to score against than Moldova and Luxembourg.
