1723: Costas Katsouranis drops into defense and partners 20-year-old Kyriakos Papadopoulos in the center for Greece. Avraam Papadopoulos, who started there against Poland, is out of the tournament with a knee ligament injury. His partner at the back for that game, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, misses today’s match through suspension after being sent off for two bookable offenses. Dimitris Salpingidis starts after his impact coming off the bench against Poland in the opening game of Euro 2012. He scored the equalizer, won a penalty and inspired Greece to an energetic second half performance. Coach Fernando Santos could not leave him out today after that.
