European Champions Greece have been eliminated from the tournament as result of a 1-0 defeat by the Russians in Group D.

After losing their first matches at Euro 2008, both Russia and Greece could use a win in the second match.

But Greece once again seemed helpless while the Russians were stronger than in their match against Spain earlier this week.

And 33 minutes had been played when Semak found Zyryanov in the penalty area while Greek goalkeeper Nikopolidis completely misjudged the ball.

Zyryanov made no mistakes from close range and gave his side a deserved 1-0 lead, which would eventually earn them the three points.

Consequently, Greece are out of the tournament while Russia need a win over Sweden in the final group match on Wednesday to stay alive. Spain are now certain of playing in the quarter finals.
