After pulling off one of the biggest shocks in history by winning the European Championship in 2004, Greece have suffered a spectacular fall from grace.

That success eight years ago remains the only time they've managed to progress beyond the group stages of a major international tournament.

A change in management has brought a change of results, and this time round Greece were unbeaten in qualifying.

With Russia favourites to qualify from their group, Greece will look to overcome Poland for the first time in their history.

Next up is the Czech Republic, who succumbed to the Greeks in the semi-finals in 2004.

Their final group match will be against Russia.

One of the main factors in Greece's success in qualifying was their defence.

They conceded just five goals in the entire campaign and part of that was down to the contribution of Vasilis Torosidis.

The full back has attracted the attention of Europe's biggest clubs after establishing himself as a regular for Olympiacos, as well as the national side.
