On July 4, 2004, Greece completed one of football’s greatest upsets when they beat Portugal to win the European Championship.
Greece were rank outsiders going into the tournament, priced at 150/1 with bookmakers, but remarkably they qualified ahead of Spain and Russia in Group A before beating France and Czech Republic in the knockout stages.
They were underdogs again in the final against Portugal, who hosted the tournaments and had the likes of Luis Figo, Rui Costa and a young Cristiano Ronaldo among their ranks, but Otto Rehhage’s side once again upset the odds to triumph 1-0 in the Estadio de Luz.
A look back at their starting XI that day and what they went on to do after the tournament sums up just what an incredible achievement it was.
