    Greece has never scored a goal in the World Cup before, if I heard the annoying ESPN personalities correctly, but tonight they managed to get two goals en route to a 2-1 victory over Nigeria. This was another painful loss for the continent of Africa, who was probably hoping that one team could get the W and move on, but it is not looking likely for that happening

    I just want the second round to start already as this has already gone on for so long. The NBA Playoffs first round is not even this long, and they play a best of 7 series.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Greece Coach Otto Rehhagel: Unfortunately, the game started just like the last one and we went a goal down. My team needed quite some time to recover. We were dominant after the red card, but there are plenty of examples where the team with the extra man goes on to lose. However, we reacted well to conceding the first goal, showed tremendous passion and belief, and turned the game around.

    • Nigeria Coach Lars Lagerback: The positive thing is that we still have a chance of qualifying, although we need a helping hand from Argentina. We need a fresh start, and we'll do that by beating Korea Republic. We were comfortably in control, but we had problems reorganizing after the sending-off. I'm pleased with my players' attitude in the circumstances. We played well in the second half and managed to create a couple of decent chances.

    • Nigeria Defender and Captain Joseph Yobo: Until the sending-off, we had the game under control. After going a man down our aim was to try and dig in for the draw. Our attitude was good in the second half and we showed character, but it'll be very hard now. We've lost both matches and it looks like we won't make it to the next round, even if we win our last game. We're basically out of the tournament.
