Greece national football team

From Academic Kids

Template:National football team The Greece national football team is the national team of Greece and is controlled by the Hellenic Football Federation.

Greece's first appearance in a major tournament was the 1980 European Championship, but their first win in a major tournamentdid not come until the first match of Template:Ec2, a 2-1 win over the hosts Portugal. The Greeks went on to win the tournament, stunning defending champions France in the quarterfinals and the heavily favored Czech Republic in the semifinals before beating Portugal a second time, 1-0, in the final. Bookmakers were giving odds of about 80-1 to 150-1 for the Greeks before the tournament.

The Greeks' victory in Euro 2004 sent them skyrocketing up the FIFA World Rankings from 35th before the event to 14th in the July 2004 rankings. This is believed to be the largest upward move ever by a team in a single month within the top echelon of the rankings; there have been larger month-to-month moves, but by teams considerably further down the table.

The Euro 2004 winners were selected as World Team of the Year at the 2005 Laureus World Sports Awards.
