A do-or-die match versus the Ivory Coast ended in thrilling fashion as the relentless Greeks found a way to push forward to put itself in a position to earn a penalty.

Georgios Samaras drew the stoppage-time penalty after being clipped on the heel, and then buried the opportunity in full confidence.

The match itself was roughly 120 minutes of goalless pish which just so happened to be followed by one of the most nervy, teeth-chatteringly tense penalty shoot-outs we've seen in a good while.
